Christine and Frank in no rush to have children
Tuesday 17 July 2012
Christine Bleakley has revealed that she and fiancé Frank Lampard are in no rush to have babies their time is consumed with his two little girls.
In an interview, Christine said of having babies with fiancé Frank Lampard: “Our time is consumed with Frank's girls. I'm very much the type who believes in "what will be, will be". I've seen friends struggle. It's hard.”
The 33-year-old insisted her biological clock isn’t ticking, adding: “We've got lots of things to think about before we even consider that. We aren't in a complete hurry to be starting a family.”
The Chelsea footballer has two girls with Spanish model and former fiancé Elen Rivas, Luna six and Isla, five.
While the Dancing On Ice presenter said in March last year: “He’d [Frank] have babies in the morning,” she isn’t in a hurry to have children of her own yet, and instead wanted to focus on her career.
She said: “He’s a brilliant daddy, he really is. It’s one of the things that attracted me to him.
“And so, yeah, I think he’d be very happy about it. I have another couple of years of getting up at 3 o’clock in the morning. But definitely would like to do it.”
If there’s any doubt that the pair are putting off kids because they’re just not serious enough, then their upcoming nuptials will put that to rest.
The couple announced their engagement in June last year, and Christine insists she wants a private and intimate affair, unlike many of her fellow celebrities.
“I just want my family and friends to have a relaxed and fun day,” she said.. “The idea of having lots of pictures taken really scares me, to be honest. We just want to have a day where we don't need to think about anything.
“We want to have a bit of a laugh all day long, have nice food and maybe a little tipple. That's my plan.”
Christine acknowledges that there will always be speculation around their relationship because the pair have taken their time to wed, saying: 'I know that people want to be able to say, "Oh, it isn't happening this year, so it mustn't be happening at all, then." But it was never happening this year!
“Unless I go and have a shotgun wedding tomorrow, which I don't want to do, it definitely isn't happening this year.”
