Reflecting on the past year, Christine noted: "So many people have gone through such horrific times during the past year and certainly being pregnant in that time was unusual, you felt quite isolated and it was a bit lonely… and going to hospital appointments and having a baby is a positive thing.
"But you did have moment where you thought, 'This is not ideal' and you did feel for people that were struggling at that stage. We got through it and he [Frank] was there, thankfully, on the big day and we got out of hospital relatively quickly and all doing well."

On how Patricia is with her new baby brother, Christine said: "She is really good. Is he like her dolly? A little bit, but then she forgets he is there and couldn't care less! But if she hears a little moan she starts singing little songs to him, which we thought was quite sweet.
"But she has been really good actually. She has been a nice big sister so far, but it's early days!"
