Christine Lampard cradles her baby bump after revealing fear of giving birth alone

CHRISTINE Lampard cradled her baby bump after revealing her fear of giving birth alone.

The presenter, 41, wore a big red jumper with stripes down the sleeves and the word "love" across the chest.

Christine placed one hand on her baby bump as she smiled to the camera, letting her hair fall down one shoulder.

She captioned the picture: "Thank you @loosewomen for the catch up today! ? feeling the love in my @sarahalexandraboutique_ jumper"

Christine revealed she was pregnant with her second baby on Instagram last week and that she and husband Frank are expecting in April.

However, she also revealed her fears of giving birth alone as lockdown restrictions are expected to be toughened.

Speaking on Loose Women as a guest, Christine said: "It's the unknown, you don't quite know what the outcome is going to be.

"You have to look after yourself as best you can.

"I am thinking ahead to April and what will happen then. Hopefully the world will be a better place, but ideally I'd like Frank beside me. I don't want to do it on my own.

"There's a lot of uncertainty and I'm being overprotective and as overcautious as I can. I'm trying to be really sensible. It's lonely going to hospital appointments on your own all of the time."

The Sun revealed last week Christine and football manager husband Frank discovered the happy news shortly before Christmas.

They are thrilled to be expecting a sibling for their daughter Patricia, two, and Frank's daughters Luna, 15, and Isla, 13.

She kept the news quiet until she was heading towards being six months pregnant.

Christine explained: "It wasn't a big secret, but it never felt like it was an appropriate moment to share a little bit of family happiness.

"You know what I'm like anyway I'm very cautious and low-key and no fuss. It suited me to let things tick along and feel relatively safe, if you can do at any point during pregnancy."

Christine told of her sadness that she hasn't been able to travel home to Ireland to see her parents since discovering her pregnancy.

"I have two very excited parents who just cannot wait," she said.

"But it's been very weird [not seeing them] if I'm being honest, purely because we're very close thankfully.

"Mum and dad haven't got to touch the bump or seen it in the flesh.

"It does seem even more isolating that your family and friends can't put their arms around you. You do miss that contact and it's been a big shift from the first time around."
