As the happy couple share the news that Christine is pregnant with their second baby, we take a look back on their incredible love story.

Here's everything you need to know about their gorgeous love story…

How did they meet?

Loose Women star Christine, 41, and ex-England footballer and Chelsea boss Frank met back in October 2009 when they were both attending the Mirror's Pride Of Britain Awards.

Speaking to the Mirror at the annual ceremony in 2017, they reflected on their first meeting.

"It’s where Christine bagged me," Frank, 42, said on the red carpet.

"We’ve been back a few times since, when we can and it’s always an emotional night and it’s special for us obviously."

Christine almost didn’t make it along on the night they met because she had to go straight from BBC’s The One Show, which she then co-presented with Adrian Chiles. But thankfully she managed to get there – and the rest is history.

"There was an awkward introduction at the party afterwards," she has previously said about their meeting. "Frank came over and said, ‘I watch you on The One Show’.

"And I said, ‘No you don’t! Who was my guest last night?’ And he was able to tell me.

"I just laughed and we both giggled about it. And then that was it. He somehow got my number and I had a withheld-number call on my phone on the way home. I picked up and it was him.

"I said, ‘Wow, you’re keen!’ as a bit of a joke, and we chatted and he said he enjoyed meeting me and would like to stay in touch. It was very relaxed.

"And then he went away with England the next day so I didn’t see him for a couple of weeks. But we spoke on the phone every single night while he was away and one night we spoke for four hours.

"So by the time we met again which was a couple of weeks later, we’d done all the awkward chats. I knew straight away it could be serious because I knew we could be mates and he made me laugh and we laughed a lot on the phone."
