Christine Lampard Gets Emotional As She Returns To 'Loose Women'

Christine Lampard made an emotional return to Loose Women this morning as she reminisced about giving birth to her first child.

The TV personality has been away on maternity leave since welcoming her first child with former footballer Frank Lampard on 21st September last year.

But Christine began to cry on her return when conversation turned to her being a mum for the first time.

Telling her fellow panel about her little girl, Patricia, Christine said: "I was sort of fine until the doctor said: 'Christine, you're about to become a mummy.

"It just gets me every time, and I think, 'Oh my gosh I really am,' and that was me."

While tearing up, she admitted: "Oh I'm getting emotional just talking about it," as Stacey Solomon wrapped her arms round her and gave her a big hug.

Chatting about her pregnancy, she said: "This was just such a joy for all of us, and I guess it's just why people continue to have babies.

"She is now five months old, and honestly for the past five months I have been watching you at home, feeding her, sitting in my pyjamas. And here I am back again. It feels so strange.

"I have got into a sort of routine now. I am brave enough now to take her out and get her out on my knee, but in the early stages I was a bit worried about it, thinking 'what if I don't have everything, what if she starts crying."

Christine went on to say how she shows Patricia photos of her late grandmother, Frank's mum, so she knows who she's named after.

"It's old fashioned but it was Frank's mum's name. I sadly never got to meet her and Frank was incredibly close to her.

"And it was one of his biggest sadnesses that I never got to meet her. We've gone with the traditional grandmother name we've gone very old school."
