CHRISTINE and Frank Lampard are expecting their second baby, The Sun can reveal.
A friend said the couple were “overjoyed” about the news.
Christine, 41, confirmed she was pregnant on her Instagram account this afternoon.
She posted a picture of herself cradling her bump and wrote: “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.”
Friends close to the couple told The Sun how they’d discovered the happy news shortly before Christmas and were thrilled to be expecting a sibling for their daughter Patricia, two, and Frank's daughter's Luna, 15, and Isla, 13.
A pal said: “Christine and Frank learned they were having another child before Christmas – the timing couldn’t have been better.
“They have kept the news quiet and just told family and close friends.
“Frank’s two daughters, Luna and Isla, from his marriage to Elen Rivas were thrilled to learn they would be becoming big sisters again.
“Christine is absolutely glowing and has been buying lots of new bits for the tot.
“After such a hard 2020 for everyone this feels like such a lift for the family. It’s a truly wonderful time.”
Christine and Frank, 42, welcomed Patricia into the world in 2018.
Her name is a tribute to Frank’s late mother, who passed away in 2008.
In an interview shortly before Patricia’s first birthday, Christine heaped praise on Luna and Isla.
Speaking about their close relationship in an interview with The Sun, Christine said: “They adore her, I mean completely and utterly adore her, even more than I imagined they would.
“They’re at that perfect stage where I can ask them to keep an eye on her while I have a quick shower.
“They’re both very helpful, trustworthy and so brilliant with her.”
