Christine Lampard is pregnant

Christine Lampard is pregnant with her first child.

The 39-year-old television presenter has revealed she and her husband, former soccer star Frank Lampard, are expecting their first child together, three years after they tied the knot in 2015.

Posting a picture of herself alongside Frank and his two daughters Luna, 12, and Isla, 10 - whom he has from his relationship with Elen Rivas - Christine wrote on Instagram: The Lampard family are expanding!! I feel SO excited, nervous and grateful! The list of emotions is endless . #Repost @franklampard with @get_repost (sic)"

Frank, also 39, took to Instagram to share the same picture on his own page, saying he "couldn't be happier" to bring another child into the world, which will mark his first with his spouse.

He wrote: "We have some exciting news we wanted to share with you. The Lampard family is growing! My gorgeous wife @christinelampard is pregnant and we all couldn't be happier!!! (sic)"

The happy news comes after the 'One Show' presenter admitted she feels like a "mate" to her two step-daughters, and hopes that they still want to confide in her when they enter their teens.

She said: "If you get good at being a step parent you can get that balance quite right because you don't want to be the parent. That's sort of what I've got, which is quite good.

"I don't know if that will change as they get older and they say, 'Oh, I don't want to talk to you either.'

"At the minute I'm still the mate, so it's quite good. But that all changes, they are just about to hit teenage years. It could all go horribly wrong."

At the time, Christine also revealed that she would love to have children of her own with Frank, but said she didn't feel pressured to get pregnant.

She said: "If it happens, of course it would be wonderful. If not, we have two girls - and one is about to embark on her teenage years, so that is a whole other chapter about to happen.

"That is honestly where our heads are at, and we just enjoy life as best we can in between. I have no huge aspirations at all."
