To which Ola added: ‘Don’t get me wrong, if we have a boy and he wants to be a girl when he’s older, then that’s fine,’ with James adding: ‘That’s his choice – it’s not our decision.’
The couple added that they are going to have ‘blue for a boy and pink for a girl’ to meet their ‘fairly traditional’ home life, adding that they have ‘blue jobs’ and ‘pink jobs’ around their abode.
Ola and James also want Santa to leave ‘gender-specific presents’ at Christmas time, saying ‘boys are boys – and girls are girls’.

Last week, Ola spoke about her birth plans, as she prepares to welcome her first child in March. Their first round of IVF proved successful.
Speaking to Closer Magazine, Ola admitted she’s ‘scared’ about labour, but says James, 41, is panicking more than her.
‘I don’t know what to expect with the birth – I’m scared, but millions and millions of women do it, so it can’t be that bad surely?’ Ola said, adding: ‘But James is more scared than me, more afraid. He’ll be a terrible birthing partner!’

Ola continued that her husband couldn’t be doing more for her as she nears the halfway point of her pregnancy, gushing:
‘He’s very protective of me – even now, when I’m just walking around, he’s making sure I don’t fall. So if things don’t go the way they should [at the birth], I think he will start panicking.’
The ex Strictly Come Dancing star says she’s finally enjoying her pregnancy after suffering from bad morning sickness, but is just ‘so happy’ that’s she’s pregnant after trying for so long to conceive.
