WAG of: Frank Lampard, Chelsea midfielder
WAG since: October 2009

Frank Lampard is no stranger to playing on the biggest stage of them all.

The England international has featured at a World Cup and European Championships, as well as taking part in a Champions League final.

This evening the 33-year-old is expected to feature in the Chelsea starting lineup that takes on Spanish and European champions Barcelona in what will be another major match on Lampard's CV.

Up in the stands at Stamford Bridge cheering on the central midfielder and the Blues will be Christine Bleakley, arguably one of the most famous WAGs in her own right.

Bleakley has been dating Lampard since the pair met at the Pride of Britain Awards in October 2009.

However, Lampard is not the first professional sportsman that the Northern Ireland-born presenter has dated. As she took her first steps into the television world, Bleakley was in a relationship with Curtis Bowen, who played ice hockey for the Belfast Giants.

As her career with the BBC began to hit new heights, her relationship with Bowen ended.

It would probably be easier to list a light entertainment show that Bleakley hasn't featured on since that point. Most notably she has co-hosted The One Show and Daybreak with Adrian Chiles, while she has also taken on roles on Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing on Ice, Children in Need, Sport Relief and Let Me Entertain You.

She got together with former West Ham United midfielder Lampard just eight months after splitting with entrepreneur Mark Beirne.

Having been together 18 months, Lampard proposed while the pair were on holiday in Los Angeles.

No date has been set for the wedding, although reports have suggested that they will be tying the knot either immediatley before or after this summer's European Championships in Poland and Ukraine.

While 33-year-old Bleakley has an allegiance towards Northern Ireland, English fans up and down the country will be hoping that Lampard has a Euro 2012 medal to go alongside his new wife!
