There's no denying that Christine Lampard has taken motherhood like a duck to water. The new mum, who welcomed little Patricia with husband Frank Lampard in September, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a rare photo of her newborn daughter during their first baby massage class. "I've got a very contented little baby after our first baby massage class. Max the little training doll isn't so sure," she wrote in the caption. Since giving birth, Christine has been keeping a low profile and has remained relatively quiet on social media.

When announcing her daughter's arrival in September, Christine said: "Let us introduce you to our little girl. Patricia Charlotte Lampard! We're so in love." The lovely name is a clear nod to Frank's late mother Pat, who passed away in 2008 after losing her battle to pneumonia. At the time of the pregnancy announcement in May, Frank gushed: "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!!!" Although this is the first child for Christine, the TV presenter is also a stepmother to husband Frank's two daughters; Luna, 13, and Isla, 11. The couple have been married since 2015; they first met in 2009.
