Christine Bleakley - who is engaged to footballer Frank Lampard - never thought she would meet a man she wanted to get married to
Christine Bleakley never thought she'd get married.
The 'Dancing On Ice' host - who got engaged to footballer Frank Lampard last year - admits she is shocked to have found a man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, and the couple's relationship has been a "magical experience".
She said: "It's been a magical experience. I never thought I's find the man for me, to be honest with you. I was never one of those girls who was desperate to get married and have babies.
"I've had long-term relationships but it never got to that stage because I didn't feel ready. But it just clicked with him."
Christine explained being engaged to Frank - who has two daughters, Luna, six, and four-year-old Isla, from his relationship with former fiancee Elen Rivas - has made her feel more secure.
She added in an interview with Now magazine: "Engagement does change you. I never thought it would, but it makes you feel more united. We're a proper little team.
"My life has changed in ways that I never thought, too. We have the two girls a lot of the time."
