Sophie Ellis-Bextor has slammed claims she was hoping for a daughter after welcoming her fifth son this week.
The singer announced the arrival of baby boy Mickey on Monday, sharing a sweet Instagram photo of her musician husband Richard Jones holding their ‘absolutely gorgeous’ new addition.
The star was keen to stress that she was in no way disappointed not to have a baby girl, hitting back in a strongly worded tweet hours after the birth.Referencing a report that claimed Sophie had ‘hinted’ that she wanted a girl during her appearance on Sunday Brunch the day before the birth, Sophie tweeted:’I did nothing of the sort. I’ve only ever wanted whatever babies I’ve been lucky enough to have. X’
She is already mum to four boys she shares with husband Richard; Sonny, 14, Kit, nine, Ray, six, and Jesse, two.The Murder on the Dancefloor hit-maker was seen appearing on Sunday Brunch Live just 24 hours prior to giving birth.
She had appeared on the Channel 4 Sunday morning show alongside hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer and fellow guests; Gemma Atkinson, Eamonn Holmes and wife Ruth Langsford, Spencer Matthews and his wife Vogue Williams, and singer Jade Bird.
Sophie had cut a glamorous figure on the show, revealing that she was unaware of her unborn baby’s sex. Quizzed about whether she was having a boy or a girl, Sophie replied: ‘This one is… a baby, for sure. I don’t know what I’m having. I’ve never found out.’She was asked whether she and husband Richard had been trying for a girl, with Sophie playfully joking: ‘Obviously, we’re trying for a boy.
‘No, I would hate for any of my sons to think that they were an attempt to be someone else. They are all very wanted and very different… I will accept whoever is on their way.’
Although, she did admit she ‘feels like I’ve been pregnant for ever’, Sophie said: ‘Maybe I’ll never give birth… no, it’s imminent, this little person is on their way.’On whether she enjoys pregnancy, Sophie joked: ‘I like the results,’ before adding. I love the fact that we have a very busy, eccentric, chaotic family. I love incorporating what Richard and I do into our family life.
‘He has been touring with me for the last three or four years now, as well as doing stuff with The Feeling, I’ve been lucky to have him around… we’ll take the baby with us [on tour].’
Fans flooded Sophie’s birth announcement Insta with congratulatory messages, as she gushed: ‘He’s here! Mickey Jones born today weighing 7lb 1oz and he’s absolutely gorgeous. Welcome to our quirky little family, sweet boy. We’re so glad you’re here safe.’
