She revealed her step-daughters Luna, 12, and Isla, 10, have already been checking out names on baby books and have made some suggestions.
Asked if there was already a name in mind, she said: ‘Not really, well, sort of. We kind of have, the girls have, but nothing is definite at all.
‘It would be lovely to pick something that the girls have chosen, so we’ll see how it goes.’
After the delivery of the child, it will be the first for Christine and third for Lampard who shares Luna, 12, and Isla, 10 with his ex-Spanish model wife Elen Rivas.
