Christine Lampard barely left her home while she was pregnant with her son over her fears of catching coronavirus, she has revealed.
The 42-year-old gave birth to her son Freddie five months ago in the midst of lockdown rules and restrictions as a result of the pandemic.
The presenter admitted that she spent a lot of her time indoors while pregnant with her son, who she shares with husband Frank Lampard, as she feared the potential consequences of contracting the virus.
Speaking to Dr Amir Khan about a new clinical trial set to explore the best gap between vaccination jabs for pregnant women while she guest presented on ITV's daytime show Lorraine, she admitted that she had spent the majority of her pregnancy isolating at home.
"It wasn't being offered when I was pregnant and funnily enough I ended up just staying in the house an awful lot of the time because I was so scared of being out and about and catching it, not knowing what the consequences were," she said.
"It is an interesting trial for all those pregnant women out there who are scared about what the future's going to hold over the next nine months."
Christine, who is also mum to Patricia, two, admitted it has taken some time to welcome a boy into the family after three girls, including husband Frank's daughters from a previous relationship.
In an interview with the Mirror, she said: "Freddie settled beautifully into our life. He's very easy going and just sits there and stares and smiles a lot. Really, that's it. He's just brilliant.

"So we feel very, very blessed with him, I have to say. I don't take any of it for granted."
Last month, she admitted that she and Frank had been lucky as he had been able to be with her during the birth.
During the pandemic, many women were unable to have their birthing partners with them until they were in active labour.
Christine said: "Frank was able to be there but we were very lucky, there were so many women in the early stages who didn't have that chance, just dreadful.
"He wasn't able to go to the appointments leading up but he was there for the big day.
"So many people have gone through such horrific times in the past year and being pregnant in that time was unusual, you felt isolated and quite lonely.
"Going to hospital for a baby is a positive thing but you did have moments where you thought, this is not ideal."
