In October 2013, the lovely Christine Bleakley seemed to be in good spirits despite popping up on the Pride of Britain Awards red carpet sans her fiancé Frank Lampard.

They married on December 20, 2015, and had a baby girl, Patricia Charlotte Lampard, on September 21, 2018.

How long have Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley been together?

Both fresh out of relationships at the time, Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley met for the first time at the Pride of Britain awards in 2009. Christine had just split from Belfast entrepreneur Mark Beirne and Frank had ended his engagement to Elen Rives.

“By the time we met again a couple of weeks later, we had done all the awkward chats,” Christine revealed in an interview. “I knew straight away it could be serious because I knew we could be mates and he made me laugh.”

Speaking on The Emma Barnett Show on BBC Radio 5 Live in January 2018, her husband confessed it was “love at first sight”.

“I had been on my own for a year, single for a year, and I’d had a very hard time with my mum, and I was in a difficult place,” he shared. “And I don’t need to go into that, but it was tough, and I was working and that was my get-out from a very hard year for myself.”

The Northern Irish broadcaster, known best for her current work as a regular presenter in various shows for ITV, showed her support for the unsung heroes of Britain by gracing the event with all of her 5-foot-8-inched presence.

The night saw a number of black dresses on the red carpet, but Christine was able to hold her own, looking toweringly elegant in a black-and-white number.

The then 34-year-old wore a stunning full-length dress by Roland Mouret that shied away from looking too classic with its mixture of varied fabrics sewn together in Mouret’s signature folding style.

We are fans of Roland Mouret’s folding techniques, so this origami-inspired dress garners a resounding yes for us.

The designer rarely works on full-length dresses, however, with a number of his ready-to-wear items being within the midi-mini range, so this is a refreshing sight to behold. Also, how lovely are the delicate folds at the back that frame the exposed zipper?

This French creation can be found at Farfetch and Net-A-Porter.
