Recalling the moment she gave birth to Patricia, the presenter said: "The doctor, just before the big moment, said you're about to become a mummy and that's when the tears started.

"She's [Patricia] doing very well on the sleeping front, but I still have that moment when I look at her and think, 'I can't believe you're mine.'"

She added: "It wasn't too bad, it was what it was supposed to be, she thankfully was healthy and happy and you heard the little scream."

Speaking about her husband Frank Lampard landing a new job as manager of Derby County Football Club, Christine said: "He's in Derby, he's at home this morning.

"He's very busy with all of the football stuff so there's plenty of to-ing and fro-ing.

"But it's all lovely and Patricia's doing very well. She's just wonderful, so she's brought an awful lot of joy to all of us so far."

Christine recently returned to work following her maternity leave.

Earlier this month, the star teared up as she opened up about becoming a mum for the first time while making an emotional return to Loose Women.

"Patricia was Frank's mum, who I sadly never got to meet. Frank was obviously incredibly close to his mum and it's one of his biggest sadness's  that I never got to meet her."
