Christine Lampard has revealed the due date of her second baby, confirming that she's now 20 weeks along.

The 41-year-old Loose Women presenter shared the exciting news on the ITV show, telling viewers and her fellow panelists: "I'm 20 weeks already. April is when it is, early April. It's really not that far away. It will be here before we know it, we can't quite believe it!"

Christine announced that she and husband Frank Lampard are expecting a baby in a post on Instagram last weekend, posting a photo of herself cradling her bump at home.

On why she kept the news quiet for 20-weeks, Christine explained: "It wasn't even that it was a big secret, most people that I know knew certainly but it was a lot to do with every time I went to do the little Instagram post, Boris [Johnson] would beat me to it and announce something dreadful on the news and it never felt like it was an appropriate moment to share a little bit of family happiness…"

She continued: "Suddenly another week went by and you know what I am like anyway, I am very cautious and bit kind of low-key and no fuss. It sort of suited me to tick things along, to get to a point where you felt relatively safe, if you can do it at any point in a pregnancy. It just felt nice to get past the 12-week phase and then suddenly it was past 20 [weeks]."

Christine and 42-year-old Frank are also parents to their two-year-old daughter Patricia, named after Frank's late mother.

She also admitted that it was a "strange" time to be pregnant, and that it can be "lonely" going to hospital appointments alone, but she hoped that by April the world be "a better place".

"It's a strange time to be pregnant, as much as it is quite stressful because you are trying to take care of everything, yourself and this little baby. But on the flip side, you can't go out, you can't go partying, you don't feel like you are missing out on anything because none of your friends and family are doing it either.

"It is a bizarrely odd time to be pregnant but quite appropriate because no one else is enjoying themselves."

Christine added: "I am sort of thinking ahead to April and what will happen at that point, hopefully the world will be a much better place. Ideally, I would like Frank alongside me, I don't want to do that on my own, and lots of women did have to do that the first time around. There is just a lot of uncertainty and you are just trying to be overly protective. I really do try to be as cautious as I possibly can... but it’s a bit lonely going to hospital appointments on your own all the time."

Loose Women airs on weekdays on ITV.
