Dancing on Ice stars Brianne Delcourt and Kevin Kilbane weren't keen on finding out their unborn baby's gender – but they had little choice when their doctor accidentally let slip they were having another little girl.
Speaking exclusively to OK! in at their recent pregnancy reveal shoot, the couple, who share four daughters already between them, admitted they had big plans to find out the gender on Christmas Day, but it wasn't to be.
"The thing is we didn't want to find out this time," Brianne explained. "But we went to the doctors and inadvertently found out! We'd stressed the point that we wanted the envelope after the appointment so we could either open it when we wanted to or leave it."
"We wanted to wait 'til Christmas day, that was our plan, " Kevin added. " But the doctor said 'she' three or four times during the examination! She knew she'd messed up." Brianne continued, "so it looks like we're having a girl!"
The couple already share nine month old daughter Olivia, as well as five year old Gracie, while teens Elsie and Isla make up their blended family. So in a sense it wasn't a surprise to learn their latest addition is a little girl too.
"We didn’t find out the way we expected, but it’s amazing. I said to Bri the other day I couldn’t really see myself with anything but a girl," Kevin gushed. "All we’ve known is girls, so it was just the way it’s always been. I was delighted. I think it’s so special we’ll have all girls."
Thrilled Brianne added: "We’re going to have a full football team of girls!"
"I honestly wouldn’t know what to do with a boy and I don’t think Kevin would either," she continued. "It was always my dream before I had children to have all girls. Doing things like Dancing On Ice and having all these costumes, I remember when I was single thinking, 'Who am I going to pass this stuff on to?'.
"So now I can’t believe I’m going to have three girls. Before we found out I remember looking at Olivia and I couldn’t imagine her being my last baby girl, so I was secretly hoping.
"Gracie is very happy we’re having a girl. I think if it was a boy she’d send them back to the hospital."

Meanwhile, the pair, who met two years ago while competing on Dancing On Ice, described how they told little Gracie the news.
"My stomach popped out and I put on so much weight so fast and I remember we were in the bathroom and she said, “Mummy your stomach is getting big!”, Brianne recalled. "Then a week later we said, “There’s another baby in there,” and she gasped."
"She said, “I think we should name it Lavender.” She thinks it’s her baby so you have to go along with her. She absolutely loves being a big sister and Olivia’s whole face lights up when she sees her."
