Danielle Lloyd has opened up about all the body pain she is experiencing during her fifth pregnancy – with crippling back pain and sore calves causing her agony.
The 37-year-old former Celebrity Big Brother contestant is expecting her first ever daughter – and is already mum to four boys.
The reality star shares three sons – Archie, 11, Harry, 10 and eight-year-old George – with ex-husband Jamie O-Hara, and one son named Ronnie with current husband Michael O’Neill.
After years of wanting to welcome a daughter, Danielle’s wish is soon to become a reality – but it sounds like her fifth pregnancy has been tough.
Speaking to new! magazine, Danielle said her emotions have been in overdrive in recent weeks as her pet Frenchie, Fendi, gave birth to two puppies.
She said: “This week I’ve been so worried about Fendi, I’ve not been concentrating on myself.
“But since she gave birth my back pain has got worse. I think the baby’s going to be here before we know it. I’m 36 weeks now, so it won’t be long.”
Danielle recently enjoyed a night out with friends as part of her baby shower celebrations – but she says she suffered for her night of fun.
She explained: “I wore a tight white dress to show off my bump with some pink fluffy heels. My calves the next day felt like I’d claimed Kilimanjaro.”
The reality star went on to explain she has been a little on edge over the risk of contracting gestational diabetes – which can happen to some women during pregnancy.
Danielle has been having tests to see if she has the condition, and said: “I haven’t actually heard anything back, which is good news.
“When I was having Ronnie I was on the cusp. I always have quite big babies, so I think they just worry about the fact I could get diabetes. But I’ve been lucky this time.”

She went on to explain that her back pain has been the worst side effect of her current pregnancy.
She said: “Apart from the back pain, I’ve flown through it pretty fast. I spoke to the physio and I can wear a brace under my bump, as because I’m small framed my body can’t take the weight properly.”
She added she has also been taking paracetamol to counteract her pain too.
With her daughter soon to arrive, Danielle and her husband Michael have been thinking of names – and say they want to use the same name that fellow reality star Stacey Solomon used for her own daughter.
Speaking to OK! this week, Danielle said: “Michael wants Rose involved in the name somewhere, but we don’t know.
“We’ve got a shortlist of names and we’ll decide once we see her. When I looked at Ronnie, I just knew he was a Ronnie.”
