Some people choose to find out the sex of their baby, others keep it a surprise.
But when you’re told ‘It’s a girl/boy’, you’re pretty confident that you can start preparing for your bundle of joy… right?
Wrong. Well, at least it was for one mum – and she had spent hundreds on decorating her little girl’s nursery, as well as kitting out her wardrobe.
Katie Ingram was certain that she was expecting a little girl, who she was going to name Poppy, when she fell pregnant.
And four scans in both Spain and the UK confirmed her suspicions.
However, Katie was in for a shock when her midwife delivered ‘Poppy’ on December 16 – and announced ‘It’s a boy!’
Katie’s mum, Sarah, said that although Katie was shocked that Teddy was a ‘chico’ and not a ‘chica’, she is ‘head over heels in love’.
Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, she said: ‘On Katie’s arrival back to the UK the pink shopping began, where she and her dad filled three trollies at ASDA with pink, pink and more pink.
