She said: “He’s been a great little baby, slipped into the family just seamlessly. He’s been a gorgeous little addition.”

Christine explained that her husband Frank was able to be at the birth amid COVID-19 restrictions.

She continued: “We were very lucky, there were so many women that just didn’t have that chance at all.

“He wasn’t able to go to the appointments leading up to it, but he was there for the big day.

“I did need him!”

Christine went on to talk about how her daughter Patricia is with her baby brother.

The star said: “She’s really good,” to which Lorraine asked: “Is it like he’s a dolly?”

Christine replied: “A little bit and then forgets he’s there and couldn’t care less. If she hears a little moan, she’ll start singing little songs to him.

“But no she’s been really good actually. She’s a very nice big sister so far but it’s early days.”

Christine added that Freddie sleeps really well and “loves his grub”.
