Christine and Frank Lampard have welcomed their first child together, a little girl, and they've chosen an adorable old school name.
Christine announced that she was pregnant with her first child back in May and has been speaking about her pregnancy throughout.
After days of speculation that she would give birth soon, Christine finally put everyone’s minds to rest and confirmed that she has given birth to a little girl.
Posting on Instagram, Christine shared a picture from inside the hospital showing Frank proudly smiling behind her as she lay in the bed with their little girl resting on her chest.
Writing in the caption Christine wrote: ‘Let us introduce you to our little girl. Patricia Charlotte Lampard! We’re so in love ❤💕👶🏻 @franklampard’.
The old school baby name has proved popular with the couple’s fans and although they are yet to confirm, it’s thought to be a tribute to Frank’s late mum, Pat Lampard, who sadly passed away aged 58 from pneumonia back in 2008.
This is Frank’s third child, as he is already dad to 12-year-old Luna and 10-year-old Isla from his previous relationship to Elen Rivas.
People have already flooded Christine’s Instagram post with messages of congratulations and it already has over 11,000 likes.
One person wrote, “Well done Christine and many congratulations to you both. Wishing you all the very best for the future. Welcome to the world Patricia. Hope you have a fabulous life”.
Another said, “Welcome to the world Patricia Charlotte May you be blessed with happiness always love to your mummy daddy and big sisters too👏🏻😘💕💕”.
A third added, “Awwww wow many many Congratulations 🎉 and such a beautiful name 💖😍”.
Christine and Frank married in 2015. The couple have always had a relaxed approach when it comes to having children of their own and in February she explained that ‘if it happens’ she would be delighted.
Luckily for the couple, it did happen and now they’ve got a gorgeous little girl to look after – congratulations to Christine and Frank!
