Danielle Lloyd made the most of the UK’s sunshine on Monday when she stripped down to a stylish patterned bikini to lap up the warm weather in the sprawling garden of her Sutton Coldfield home.
Taking to Instagram, the mother-of-four, 37, lounged on her enormous outdoor sofa with her bump on display as she sipped on an alcohol-free cider wearing a straw sun hat.
Danielle – who revealed she is expecting her fifth child earlier in May – also made sure to include her husband Michael O’Neill in the shot, with the electrician sitting at the other end of the seating area while scrolling through his phone.

As the former glamour model panned her camera to better show off her budding bump, she inadvertently gave her followers a peek at the incredible grounds of her home, revealing neatly trimmed lawns and two goal posts that had been set up for her young sons.
Pouting for fans as she posed for a full-length photo, Danielle sweetly captioned her snap: ‘Oh baby.’
She also tucked into a tasty snack as she made the most of the Bank Holiday’s glorious weather.
The CBB star is already mother to four sons, Archie, 10, Harry, nine, and George, seven, who she shares with her ex-husband Jamie O’Hara, and Ronnie, three, with Michael, who she married in April 2019.

The doting mother announced that she was expecting another child last week in Closer magazine.
Danielle, who has been extremely candid about her desire to have a daughter and even debated undergoing gender selection, told Closer: ‘I can’t wait to become a family of seven. I know there’s a risk it’ll be another boy though…
‘But, of course, the main thing I want is for the baby to be healthy. And if it’s not a girl – we’ll just try again after!’
She said: ‘We were both just over the moon. Please let it be a girl! Michael is really hoping for a girl and the boys are desperate too – they’re convinced it’s a little sister.’

Last year, the former glamour model revealed she’s put her plans to use controversial gender selection treatment on hold after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis.
She admitted she ‘can’t think about having a baby at the moment’ but would ‘love a little girl’ during an appearance on Loose Women.
In the interview, she shared she’s put her eldest child Archie in therapy after he began suffering from anxiety following her divorce from her ex-husband Jamie.
Danielle tragically suffered a miscarriage in 2019.

The media personality said she’ll have to delay her hopes of having a daughter as she’s set to undergo an operation to treat her conditions, which can affect a woman’s fertility.
She said: ‘I’ve just found out that I’ve got PCOS and endometriosis so I have to have an operation for that so can’t think about having another baby at the moment anyway.
‘I’m in two minds, I’ve just got a puppy who is a little girl so she’s my baby at the moment. I would love a little girl but four boys is a lot.’
Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus – the endometrium – grows outside the uterus, while PCOS is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work.
What is endometriosis? How the disorder results in pelvic pain and internal scarring
Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus – the endometrium – grows outside the uterus.
It most commonly affects the ovaries, Fallopian tubes and the tissue lining the pelvis.
The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain although many women also experience cramping during their menstrual cycle.
Symptoms also include painful periods, pain with intercourse, pain with bowel movements or urination, inflammation, excessive bleeding and infertility.
Often misdiagnosed, many women only discover they have the condition during infertility treatment.
Approximately half of women diagnosed with endometriosis have difficulty getting pregnant.
While studies about the link between endometriosis and miscarriages are still ongoing, newer research suggests that the condition can leave sufferers at greater risk of having a miscarriage.

In August 2019, Danielle revealed her sons were also keen to have a little sister and said she had been to Dubai’s gender selection clinic, the Fakih IVF centre.
The practice has been condemned by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and is illegal in Britain.
The WHO says that sex selection raises ‘serious moral, legal, and social issues’ and can lead to the devaluation of women and gender imbalance.
Danielle has learnt that the treatment is accurate in 99% of the cases in which a baby is successfully born and also started to investigate the possibility of arranging for a girl in Northern Cyprus, another state where it is legal.
After further questioning, however, the TV star and electrician Michael had previously settled on America, where they felt the overall safeguards would be stronger.
Once there, a number of her eggs would be harvested and fertilised, and then one or two of the resulting female embryos will be reimplanted in the mother’s womb. The rest will be stored for possible use in the future.
Elsewhere in the discussion, the CBB star revealed she sought help for her son Archie, who struggled to ‘open up’ to his mother following her split from his father, footballer Jamie.
The 2004 Miss England pageant queen was divorced the sportsman in 2014 just two years after they tied the knot when it emerged he’d cheated on her.
