The couple shared a clip of their 12-week scan in October although the scan itself took place at the end of September.
“We’re going to have a little peek at the new little Radford,” Sue said in the clip.
The unborn babe also had three siblings watching the screen in 2D and 3D and they even heard her heartbeat.
Sue thought she was going to have another boy but Noel thought otherwise.
Speaking about the scan, he said: “One minute it looked like a girl, the next minute it looked like a boy, so we’re not sure.”
Back then, he talked about plans of doing a gender reveal soon, saying: “It’s a long way to go yet but yeah… it’s a good Christmas.”
