Rochelle Humes' daughter is hoping for a new baby sister and not a brother
Rochelle and Marvin Humes’ daughter is so desperate for a little sister that she wants to “send the baby back” if it’s a boy.
The two music stars are parents to three-year-old Alaia-Mai, and are currently expecting baby number two. Rochelle hasn’t revealed her unborn baby’s gender yet, but explained in a new chat that her daughter is only interested in getting a little sister.
“Our little girl is so desperate to have a sister I warned her, ‘What happens if you have a baby brother?’ She replied, ‘We’ll just send it back’. I’m trying to tell her it doesn’t work like that,” Rochelle laughed, according to The Mirror newspaper, adding that while Alaia-Mai has suggested the name Alice-in-the-Palace for a girl she has no ideas for a boy’s moniker.
“Alaia-Mai is so excited about being a big sister and I hope it stays that way. The only thing I’m worried about is her getting upset about having to share her parents, but I’ve been reading up on how to handle it. I’m getting really paranoid.”
The former The Saturdays singer, 27, is currently on maternity leave from her TV hosting duties and recently enjoyed a popcorn-themed baby shower ahead of her tot’s arrival next month (Mar17).
She doesn’t have to worry about rushing to her newborn’s aid after the birth either as ex-JLS star Marvin, 31, already has a plan in place.
“Marvin works evenings and gets home from DJing at 1am so he can do the night shift with the baby. It’s important for dads to bond too,” Rochelle noted.
“As the mum, you spend nine months carrying and bonding with the baby so you have that instant connection. It’s nice for the dad to have their own special time.”
