Holly, who has three children with husband Dan Baldwin, was one of the first to congratulate Christine and Frank via Instagram.

She wrote: “Just sooooo wonderful. You look so beautiful and happy. Sending you so much Baldwin love from all of us.”

Her This Morning co-host Phil, a dad of two grown up girls, added: “What a beautiful pic. Congratulations.”

Other members of the ITV family also commented, including Christine’s Loose Women panellists Andrea McLean, Jane Moore, Linda Robson and Lisa Riley.

Lisa shared the picture Christine and Frank posted to her own Instagram account alongside the message: “Such WONDERFUL news for @christinelampard @franklampard on the birth of Patricia!

“I could not be more happy and proud of you both. You are one of the most genuine, kind, honest people I have ever had the privilege of working with….Sending you so much love and happiness.”


Further congratulations came in from Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid and ITV’s Lorraine show, all of whom were over the moon for the new parents.

Other celeb pals sending love to the Lampard family included Michelle Keegan, ex-Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley, The One Show’s Alex Jones and Celebrity Juice’s Keith Lemon.

More well wishes came in from Jamie Redknapp and his ex-wife Louise, The Saturdays’ Rochelle Humes – who also steps in as a guest  host on Lorraine – and Giovanna Fletcher, who has just welcomed a child herself.

Abbey Clancy sent her congratulations, as did I’m A Celebrity’s Becky Vardy, Michelle Heaton, GMB showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold and Tamzin Outhwaite.

Also leaving comments were Tamara Ecclestone, former footballer John Terry and his wife Toni, Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones and many, many more!

They’re certainly a popular couple, right?!

The baby’s name is a tribute to Frank’s beloved late mum Pat, who sadly passed away from pneumonia in 2008 at the age of just 58 years old.
