It's her first ever pregnancy, and Christine Lampard is taking to it like a duck to water. The 39-year-old, who is married to footballer Frank Lampard, revealed that she doesn't care about piling on the pounds just as long as the baby remains healthy. "I couldn't care less about putting on weight as long as everything's OK inside," she told The Mirror. "I'm not training, just walking the dog. That's it. I'm just taking it all in my stride. I'm feeling great. I'm eating a lot of ice cream, but I think that's more to do with the weather than the pregnancy cravings."

The sportsman is already a father to two daughters Luna, 12, and Isla, 11. During a recent appearance on Lorraine, Christine revealed how excited her stepdaughters are about having a new sibling. "It's lovely, we are very excited," she shared. "It's the first grandchild for my parents, my sister will be an auntie for the first time.
