Grant Denyer speaks out about often being shamed for only having daughters and not a male heir.
The 40-year-old radio host tells Be he’s extremely proud of the female strong family he shares with wife Cheryl, but has revealed he’s regularly quizzed over the fact he doesn’t have a son — and it makes him “angry”.
“What offends me is when people go, and I’ve had this quite a few times, ‘ahh you’ve got two girls, clearly you want to go for a boy,’ like you wouldn’t be happy with two girls,” he explained.
“I adore my two girls and I don’t need anymore in my life,” he continued. “They are the loves of my life and they’re daddy’s girls. We don’t feel like there’s anything missing.”

“I had a guy come to me when Sailor was born and he goes, ‘so you had a girl first, are you a bit disappointed it wasn’t a boy, like you must want an heir?’
“But I’m not currently the head of a royal family,” Grant said. “I was so angry. We’d managed to bring a human into the world who we loved more than anything, like how can you be disappointed?”
Have you fought this battle? I know I do as a mum of boys too. GAH!
