A new mum who splashed a whopping £1,200 on blue gifts and accessories for a baby boy was stunned to give birth to a girl.
Mollie Humble, 21, was under the impression that she was having a son after medics told her twice she was expecting a boy.
The hairdresser, from County Durham, even held a blue-themed gender reveal party and picked out a baby name.
She also bought blue feeding bottles and paid for accessories to be embroidered with the name Roman.
But shortly after she gave birth, a midwife announced that Mollie had a baby girl, reports Mirror Online.
Mollie said: "When the baby was born I grabbed him and said 'Hello Roman' and kept kissing him."
She added: "I had the baby on my chest for about 15 minutes before the midwife asked if I'd checked the baby was a boy.
"I shook my head and so she checked and said: 'Your baby's a girl'. I didn't believe it at first.
"I had one white baby grow, and everything else was blue. I had blankets embroidered with Roman on them.
"I'd spent all my savings on things for a boy – £500 on blue baby clothes and £700 on a pram."
The new-mum, who named her daughter Layla-Rose, was first told she was having a boy at her 20 week scan.
The baby's gender was confirmed again by a sonographer carrying out an emergency scan at 37 weeks.
She continued: "I had no reason to doubt them. When I found out I was pregnant I wanted a girl."
The baby arrived just three weeks later on October 26, weighing 8lbs 4oz.
Mollie said: "I'd spent half my pregnancy thinking I was having a baby boy so it was hard to adjust even though I loved her so much.
"It was a shock, but I’m really happy to have a little girl. Layla-Rose is so good – she only cries for her feed. She's my little princess."
Dad Mark, 32, rushed out to buy some pink clothes for the couple's daughter and a giant pink teddy.
The mum admits the pair have since sold all of Roman's clothes and currently have no plans for anymore children.
She concluded: "I'm happy with my baby girl and feel because of this I've had one of each already."
This comes after a mum built a pink nursery thinking she's having a girl – only to have a boy.
A similar scenario happened to Hayley Sexton, 33, who believed she was having a daughter.
