Television presenter Christine Bleakley has revealed that she is 'not ready' for babies, but that she is in 'awe' of women like Kate Garraway who juggle the demands of family life with successful careers.

Christine, who has been dating footballer Frank Lampard for a year, said in an interview with Hello! magazine that she 'loves children', but is not yet ready for her own.

She gave the magazine an insight into her relationship with Chelsea midfielder Frank, saying: 'We enjoy our own little home life: cooking together, lighting candles, watching TV - and going to bed rather early! We're very compatible. I do love children, but I can't even think about that at the moment. I'm in awe of women like Kate Garraway, who juggle it, but I'm not ready for it yet.'

Christine said she and Lampard - who has two children from a previous relationship - were enjoying an 'old fashioned courtship' and one which had the blessing of her Daybreak co-host Adrian Chiles:

'There was no one on this planet happier about me dating Frank than Adrian,' she said, 'They get on really well. Adrian is more than thrilled about Frank and me.'
