Christine Lampard has wrapped up her last day on Lorraine as she heads off on maternity leave to welcome her first child with her husband Frank.

And the show gave Christine, who is due to give birth next month, the perfect send off by throwing her a baby shower.

The show arranged messages from Christine’s fellow TV pals, including Piers Morgan and Phillip Schofield, and even called on Phoenix the ‘psychic cat’ to predict the baby’s gender.

Speaking to showbiz correspondent Dan Wootton, Christine – who is 35 weeks pregnant – admitted she’s looking forward to the next few weeks but she’s starting to feel a bit nervous.

She said: “I feel really good. I fell a bit nervous now, I feel like I’ve been in a lovely bubble for the past few weeks on this show. Now that it’s done, this is going to happen.

“But I feel good, very good.”

The show then surprised Christine, 39, with messages from a few of her famous friends.

Her Loose Women colleagues wished her good luck, with Janet Street Porter even offering to help with the delivery!

Janet said: “I’ve never had a baby so I don’t know what it feels like but I did do a film about being a midwife and helping in a maternity ward, so when it comes to the moment when you pop it out, give me a call and I’ll be round.”

Stacey Solomon added: “You’re an incredible lady, take all the drugs you can get!”

The next message was from This Morning host Phil, who said: “Here’s to what is about to happen, you are going to be the very best mum. Enjoy it.”

Meanwhile, Good Morning Britain presenter Piers sent a message to Christine from a beach in Antigua, where he is currently holidaying, but it wasn’t exactly about the baby…

He said: “I’m breaking off from my holiday because I heard you are going off on your own little adventure.

“It’s obviously going to be very exciting, unpredictable and potentially quite a tough time for the Lampard family over the next few months.

“But I’m keeping every finger crossed because a good run of results and a couple of big transfers in January… I think Derby will do just fine.”

FYI, footballer Frank is the manager of Derby County.

Britain’s Got Talent’s Stephen Mulhern and Rochelle Humes also sent in messages to Christine.

Meanwhile, the mum-to-be spoke about the gender of her baby revealing she hasn’t found it out yet.

She said: “I think I know in my own head. But no, I don’t officially. I think girl, but I’m saying that without anyone confirming it.”

Then, with Christine’s permission, Dan called on Phoenix the ‘psychic cat’ to predict whether she’s having a boy or a girl… and the cat chose girl.

Christine laughed: “It’s a girl! Oh, my goodness. The psychic cat is never wrong. Never wrong, folks!”

Christine was then gifted a bouquet of flowers and a personalised Lorraine babygrow.
