Christine shares her baby joy, due date and pandemic pregnancy experience

Christine Lampard joined the Loose Women to celebrate her pregnancy joy in her first interview since she announced she's expecting her second baby.

"It’s been lovely, it’s a little bit of happiness within our family that’s for sure in amongst the bleakness that had been the last year," she told the panel. "I have two very excited parents back in Northern Ireland that cannot wait."

Christine explained how the pandemic had prevented her from seeing her family and sharing the good news in person. "It’s been very weird, if I am being honest, purely because we are very, very close thankfully," she said.

"Christmas was going to be that tiny little bit of light at the end of the year and sadly that didn’t get to happen at all so Mum and Dad haven’t got to touch the bump at all, they haven’t seen it in the flesh. Thank goodness for Skype and  FaceTime and everything else. But it does feel a bit more isolating that your family and friends can’t just put their arms around you, you do miss that contact definitely. It’s been a big, big shift compared to the first time around."

She also reflected on how different it had been attending appointments and scans without husband Frank, who she hopes will be able to be with her for the birth in April.

"Ideally, I would like Frank alongside me, I don’t want to do that on my own, and lots of women did have to do that the first time around," Christine explained.
