A post shared by Eden Hazard (@hazardeden_10) on

Eden Hazard has taken to social media to congratulate Frank Lampard after he and his wife Christine announced that they are expecting their first baby together.

The couple married in 2015 and confirmed on social media this week that they are expecting their first child together.

Lampard and Hazard of course know each other well after having spent time playing together following the Belgian’s move to Stamford Bridge from Lille back in 2012.

And the Chelsea FC attacker was quick to take to social media to praise Lampard after the former midfielder paid a visit to the training ground this week.

Hazard posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Nice when a fan wants to visit the Chelsea training ground! Congrats @franklampard on your amazing news!! #chelseafc.”

Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their crunch FA Cup final showdown against Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday evening as they look to end the season with a trophy.

It has been a largely disappointing campaign for Antonio Conte’s men, who have missed out on a top four finish in the Premier League and will have to settle for a place in the Europa League for next season.

The Blues will be aiming to bolster their squad this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.
