Ever since Lampard's move to New York City FC from Chelsea, speculation has been rife that Bleakley will follow her footballer beau to the United States.

However, the 35-year-old TV presenter set the record straight in an interview to the Daily Express. She said: "I'm not moving there... home is still very much in London."

Bleakley relocated to Manchester after the former Chelsea star was temporarily signed by Manchester City for a six-month loan spell.

Own baby
Bleakley has happily taken on the role of stepmother to Lampard's daughters Luna (9) and Isla (7) from his previous relationship with Spanish model Elen Rivas.

When asked whether she wanted children of her own, she said: "God yes. Frank's girls ask me when I'm having a baby and it's something I'd absolutely love when the time is right."
