'X Factor' Winner Sam Bailey: 'My Daughter Hopes The New Baby Is A Girl' (EXCLUSIVE)

Pregnant 'X Factor' star Sam Bailey has revealed her daughter wants her to have another girl when she gives birth later this year.

The singer - who already has an 8-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son - is five months pregnant with her third child.

She told The Huffington Post UK on the red carpet of the Prince's Trust Celebrate Success awards: "My daughter's first reaction was 'I hope it's a girl'. And my son said: 'Have you bought me a present?'.

"They're both over the moon, they're really excited, but they are arguing about the sex of the baby at the moment."

Sam added that she and her husband were not concerned whether their new arrival was a boy or a girl, saying: "I just want a healthy baby, that's all I want".

The 36-year-old singer recently defended her decision to have a baby so soon after the release of her debut album, claiming she is determined not to let it stop her working.

She told OK! magazine: "I’ve had some negativity about my pregnancy - but I’ll prove I can still have my career. I'm always going to be working, no matter what. I'm living proof you can do it."

Sam's album 'The Power of Love' will be released later this month.
