She recently detailed the struggles she has faced during her second pregnancy. 

Returning to Loose Women, Christine discussed her news with her co-stars, admitting being pregnant during a pandemic has had its ups and downs.

The media personality gushed the impending arrival provided a happy focus both for her and her extended family, especially as she is so far away from her parents back in Northern Ireland.  

‘It’s been lovely, a little bit of happiness in our family amidst the bleakness of this year. I have two parents back in Northern Ireland who just cannot wait,’ she said, adding that the restrictions meant she sadly hasn’t seen her family for months.

‘Christmas was going to be that tiny little bit of light at the end of the year and sadly that didn’t get to happen at all so Mum and Dad haven’t got to touch the bump at all, they haven’t seen it in the flesh.’

‘Thank goodness for Skype and FaceTime and everything else. But it does feel a bit more isolating that your family and friends can’t just put their arms around you, you do miss that contact definitely. It’s been a big, big shift compared to the first time around.’ 

When her co-stars asked if she had any concerns about giving birth during the pandemic, Christine honestly answered: ‘I do, it’s the unknown. You just have to look after yourself as best you can.’

‘Hospital appointments have changed, you can’t bring people with you and stuff, and that’s fine…that’s what you have to do.

Safe: Christine added: 'There is just a lot of uncertainty and you are just trying to be overly protective'

'Cautious': 'I really do try to be as cautious as I possibly can,' she 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.’

Christine also said the pandemic affected her decision to go public with the news, explaining: ‘It wasn’t a big secret. Most people I knew, knew. But it was a lot to do with everytime 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.’

‘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].’

As for her husband Frank, the football manager is ‘very excited’ to welcome his fourth child according to Christine. 

He shares Patricia with the Loose Women presenter as well as daughters Luna, 15, and Isla, 13, with ex partner Elen Rivas.
