Elen Rivas devastated at the idea of Frank having a baby with Christine Bleakley

They’ve only been dating for nine months, so when photos surfaced of Frank Lampard gently caressing Christine Bleakley’s belly on holiday in Lake Como, Italy, their phones immediately rang red-hot with calls from friends and family asking if they had some news to share.

Although Christine isn’t expecting to hear the patter of tiny feet any time soon, insiders say Frank’s ex Elen Rivas, 32, was one of the many callers – but not with a congratulatory message.

For a minute, Elen was afraid that Frank and Christine were having a baby and hadn’t told her,’ reveals our source. To say she was completely heartbroken is an understatement.

‘The fact is, she’s tried to move on, but is nowhere near getting over Frank.

She may have called time on the relationship 18 months ago over rumours that he’d cheated, but she still loves him as the man she thought she was going to marry and as the father of her two children.

‘As soon as someone told her about the photos, she called him demanding to know the truth. She was very upset – and in floods of tears.’

Friends close to Christine, 31, tell Now that she and Frank, 32, have talked about having a family together – but they’re in no rush.
