Frank and Christine Lampard are expecting a second child as she announced her pregnancy.
The delighted ITV star, 41, announced the news on social media on Saturday.
Sharing a picture of herself cradling her bump, she penned, “A new year and a new baby on the way for the Lampards! It’s been a strange and worrying time to be pregnant but we’re hoping and praying that cuddles from family and friends are not too far off.
“Sending all my love to everyone going through pregnancy during this crazy time”
Christine, who regularly appears on Loose Women and covers for Lorraine Kelly on daytime TV, already has daughter Patricia Charlotte Lampard with Chelsea manager, Frank, who was born in September 2018.
She is also step mum to Frank’s other two children Luna and Isla from a previous relationship.
Ahead of the birth of first child Patricia, Christine admitted she took “seven or eight” pregnancy tests before believing she was going to become a mum.
Opening up about her baby joy on Loose Women, the TV presenter, revealed she waited an entire day before telling husband Frank.
Patricia is named after Frank’s mum, who he was very close to, who died at the age of 58 in 2008.
When she was born the couple announced the news with a photo on social media of the family in hospital with the caption “We’re so in love”.
“I was happy in my marriage and that was enough. When we did start trying I was conscious of my age but I’d ruled out IVF after seeing too many friends go through such a gruelling process. People assume that’s what happened on account of my age.
“But I became pregnant the old-fashioned way immediately – I wasn’t expecting it to be so quick. I’d been feeling a bit weird for a day or two, so I did a test and while I was waiting for the result I was distracted by housework and got stuck into the vacuuming.
“Eventually I wandered back to check – I was astonished to find it was positive.”
Christine and Frank first met at the Mirror’s Pride Of Britain awards in 2009. They married in December 2015, recently celebrating their five year anniversary.
