Returning to Loose Women, Christine – who also raises daughter Patricia, two, with Frank – discussed her news with her co-stars, admitting being pregnant during a pandemic has had its ups and downs.
‘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.’

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.’
