"I had a few names like Autumn and Meadow and I thought they were really cute," Danielle said in an interview with OK! magazine.

"We didn’t decide straight away and I watched her change day by day. Michael really liked Rosie and I really liked Autumn. I liked both, but then people kept on sending me pictures of dogs called Rosie and I was like, 'Oh no, is this a sign?'"

She continued: "I just thought, the season is Autumn, she’s dark and tanned, she’s just so gorgeous she looks like an Autumn. And then we’ve got Rose in there also after Michael’s nan."

After getting pregnant she said she had 'bad anxiety' ahead of finding out the gender.

Danielle said she burst into tears when she was told she was carrying her first daughter.

"I’m over the moon. I can’t really believe it, to be honest," Danielle said. "I don’t think it will feel real until she arrives."

"We booked a private gender scan and I had such bad anxiety in the run-up. I’ve been through it four times and each time they’ve said it was a boy, so I was expecting them to say 'boy' again.

“I videoed the whole thing and the doctor went on about the measurements and other things, and you can hear me going, 'Can you just bloody tell me?!'"
