Pregnant model won’t stop smoking because she’s having boy and wants girl

Pregnant Josie Cunningham has blamed her refusal to quit smoking on her unborn child – because instead of the girl she wanted, it’s a boy.

She says if she had known she was not having a daughter she would “most probably” have gone ahead with the abortion she’d planned so she could appear on TV.

Josie, 23, admits she has been smoking 20 a day and boozing at weekends when she has the girls over since learning she was expecting a third son – having quit weeks earlier after a psychic told her it was a girl.

She says: “The evening I found out the sex of the baby was when I lit up my first cigarette. I’m not proud of it – but I couldn’t stop myself. It changed everything.
