Lisa B and husband Anton Bilton are expecting their third son. The couple had geared themselves up to try for a girl by going on a low sodium, high-fat diet and using the Chinese lunar calender, but before they could put their plan in to action they learned that Lisa had already conceived. The 38-year-old model revealed:
I was armed and ready with my militant have-a-girl operation when I found out I had already conceived, so it was too late to put it into action. When I had the baby’s Chinese lunar calendar predicted, I was told it would be a girl, but they were wrong. I guess the stars weren’t aligned. The good news is that I’m all geared up for boys. Although, at this rate, I could start a football team and, for my sins, it looks like I’ll have to try again for another one.
Lisa and Anton are already parents to sons Orlando, 5, and Noah, 3. Baby boy number 3 is due in March.
