Christine Lampard has said she's happy for the sex of her baby to remain a surprise, but husband Frank has other ideas.

The Newtownards presenter, 39, was discussing her pregnancy with her fellow Loose Women Gloria Hunniford, Stacey Solomon and Alexandra Burke on Friday.

She joked she was starting to lose sight of her feet while showing off her growing bump.

Christine also told the panel she and her husband were heading to a scan following the show, prompting them to ask if she would be finding out if she was having a girl or boy.

The TV presenter replied she doesn't mind either way and is happy for it to be a surprise.

She explained: “I still don’t want to know. I think there are not enough surprises in the world anymore.

“I’m totally old fashioned. We obviously don’t care whether it’s a boy or a girl so I think let’s find out on the day.”

But Christine then went on to explain how her former footballer husband is not so easy-going when it some to the sex of their baby.

She added: “Mr planner, organiser Lampard, he needs to know everything. He loves knowing.”

Asked if she would ever let Frank find out while remaining in the dark herself, she said: "No way, that would last about two seconds!"

During the live broadcast, Loose Women viewers were asked to vote on whether or not Christine should find out the sex of the baby - to which 69% voted no.

Christine announced she was pregnant with her first child via an Instagram post in May.

She met Frank at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2009. They tied the knot in 2015.

Frank has also has two daughters - Luna, 12, and Isla, 10, - from his previous relationship with Elen Rivas.

During an interview with Lorraine Kelly last month, Christine said the whole family was "really excited" about the new arrival.

She said: "(Frank) can’t wait. He’s very excited daddy-to-be. We’re a unit and we're all in this together. We feel very grateful.

"The girls are completely beside themselves, more than I thought… They are desperate for a girl."
