Marnie Simpson has revealed the sex of her unborn baby, with just a few weeks before she gives birth.
The Geordie Shore star and her boyfriend Casey Johnson unveiled the happy news to their closest friends at their gender reveal party last week – which had several fans thinking they were expecting twins.
But Marnie has since confirmed she’s expecting a little boy – and she couldn’t be more pleased.
“I was genuinely so shocked, I just screamed and said, ‘Oh my God, it’s a boy!’ I didn’t think I would produce a boy,” she told OK! magazine.
“When I first found out I was pregnant I told my mum and Casey’s auntie and cousin that I wanted a boy, but after that I was so scared to say it out loud because I never get any luck.
“Everyone I spoke to said they thought we were having a girl so I convinced myself I wanted a girl. Deep down I wanted a boy all along. It’s made me so excited for the birth.”
Casey admitted he’s “over the moon” because he’s always wanted a son as his first child.
“I wanted a boy first and a girl next,” he added to the mag.
“It’s brought us even closer together. We want two or three children all together.”
It came after the happy couple dropped a major hint they were expecting TWINS at their lavish gender reveal party, where their celebrity mates including Chloe Ferry, Lauren Goodger and Nathan Henry watched the pair cover the floor with both pink and blue confetti.
Sparing no expense, Marnie and Casey decked out the a marquee with a flower wall, and opted for gold and white balloons so as not to give anything away.
One balloon display read: “Baby Johnson,” while another set of floral letters spelt out the word “Baby”.
The couple lavished their guests with champagne, pink and blue shots and doughnuts as they waited eagerly to find out the result.
And they provided a photo-booth so guests could take away personalised snaps to commemorate the special event.
