Christine Lampard has been showing off her "tiny" baby bump after announcing she is pregnant with her first child.
The Newtonards TV presenter, 39, told early morning chat host Lorraine Kelly her husband Frank Lampard and step-daughters - Luna, 12, and Isla, 10, from Frank's previous relationship with Elen Rivas - are "beside themselves".

She added: "(Frank) can’t wait. He’s very excited daddy-to-be and because the girls are there as well. We’re a unit and we're all in this together. We feel very grateful.
"And the girls, they are completely beside themselves, more than I thought… They are desperate for a girl."
Christine announced she was pregnant via an Instagram post last week, with a photo of the family captioned: "The Lampard family are expanding!! I feel SO excited, nervous and grateful! The list of emotions is endless."

She then revealed on Loose Women she was 21 weeks pregnant and chose to keep the news quiet for so long due to her "anxiety, nerves and superstition".
Showing off her small bump while speaking to Lorraine, she said: "I wanted to go for the big scan and everything.
"I was really tentative before I announced it. We know that can happen at any stage but so far so good."
Speaking about the early stages of her pregnancy, Christine added: "I wasn't terribly sick, a little nausea but I feel good. I've tried to be good, I'm walking everywhere."
"I'm trying to do all the right things.
"Like any first-time mum, there's a list of whole things I didn't know. I'm learning on the job."
She continued: "It's lovely, we are very excited. It's the first grandchild for my parents, my sister will be an auntie for the first time."
Christine and Frank met at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2009. They tied the knot in 2015.
The presenter has spoken in the past about having children, saying she did not want to use IVF.
Speaking about the shock of falling pregnant naturally, Christine admitted she took "5 or 6" pregnancy tests to confirm the happy news.
