Not unless they went and had IVF in another country. Thats illegal in the UK to choose your gender, unless there is a medical reason to (like a gender linked disease).

I dont see them breaking the law so they can have a son. After the miscarriages they have suffered, a baby is priority.

Shocker a dad with two daughters might hope for a son this time.

There are ways to gender select, although they aren't legal in this country and would involve travelling to a different country in a pandemic. Or maybe she just ate a lot of asparagus.

I assume they didn't do that and just had a lockdown conception as it were and Mike is unwisely publicly wishing for a son. But I imagine after two miscarriages they both know healthy and viable is the most important thing.

Personally if I had to guess I'd say another one for "Princess Anne's Squad of Blonde Granddaughters".

The suggestion seems to be they were so desperate for a boy that in the middle of a pandemic they went abroad to an IVF clinic for gender selection.

Maybe Zara ate a lot of fish! When I had two daughters and we were planning a third child I was told to do that by an elderly neighbour, and it worked!

Seriously though, Zara and Mike, depending on how far along Zara is, may already know the sex of the new baby.

They may have tried some old wives tricks. Definitely some odd ones out there. But if they do have a boy it's just genetic luck.

Suggestion by mirabel was they weren't leaving it up to luck which old wives tales certainly are.

It's a good chance they know the gender. Unless they want a surprise. Even if not at the sixteen week mark. Due to her history of miscarriages she may have had some blood tests and they can tell earlier.

What lovely news. Mike and Zara seem to have happy children so, boy or girl, the baby has lucked out with his/her family.

Sorry, gender selection is legal in the USA, and I didn't realize it wasn't the case for the UK.

They saw the Sleeping Beauty by the Royal Ballet

Principal dancer of the Royal Ballet, Lauren Cuthbertson shared these memories from the backstage on her Instagram stories today (@/londonballerina)"
