Christine Lampard has admitted she "hated" watching her husband Frank play football and was grateful not to have the stress of watching him take a penalty in the Euro final.
The TV presenter was a guest on Tuesday's Lorraine, where she will be filling in as host over the summer along with Ranvir Singh, and talked about the stress of England's penalty shootout at the end of Sunday's Euro final against Italy.
Christine talked about former England player Frank working as a pundit on Sunday and said: "I think they all felt the pressure on Sunday and he knew that there were millions of people watching at home as well, it was a stressful day for all.
"But I have to admit, I don't miss him playing if I'm being honest. Even watching the penalties the other night I thought oh my gosh, it's one aspect of football I just hated it, really the stress of it.
"Thankfully he scored many more than he missed, thank goodness, but the anxiety leading up to it outweighed the positive of him actually scoring, so he might have scored and it was all wonderful but the stress beforehand, it just wasn't worth it. I found it really quite painful as a spectator."
Christine added that their daughter Patricia was a big football fan and was already being trained up by her dad.
She said: "She loves football – why wouldn't she? Do you know the really pathetic thing though, (Frank) talks to her like it's a professional Premier League player, he tells her off.
"She's two and a half, Frank! She doesn't stand a chance, she's going to be a footballer."
Christine and Frank welcomed their baby son Freddie four months ago and she said she felt lucky that her husband had been by her side for the birth.
She said: "He wasn't able to go to appointments but he was there for the big day and I did need him."
Christine added: "It was a bit lonely and as much as going to hospital to have a baby is a positive thing, you did have moments where you thought it's not ideal and you did feel for people who were struggling at that stage."
The TV star also revealed that daughter Patricia had taken to being a big sister perfectly.
She said: "If he does a little moan she'll sing him a song which we think is really sweet."
