Preparations for the birth of her fourth child were momentarily put to one side as Alex Gerrard indulged in another pampering session on Wednesday. The 34-year old stepped out in her native Liverpool ahead of a visit to a local nail salon, where she indulged in a welcome manicure – possibly her last before giving birth. Alex, who is eight months pregnant, covered her growing baby bump in a loose-fitting blue sweater as she made her way inside.

The wife of former Liverpool and England footballer Steven Gerrard added to her low-key look with a pair of skinny black jeans, while patterned trainers rounded things off.

With her hair conventionally styled, the WAG accessorized tastefully by sporting a pair of heavily tinted Aviator sunglasses.

Alex announced that she is expecting her fourth child with Steven – her husband of nine years – in November. The former nail technician took to Twitter to share the good news, uploading a sweet snap of her three daughters looking at an ultrascan scan photo of their new sibling.

Along with the image she wrote: ‘We are all very excited for our new baby to arrive next year !! number 4.’ Alex and Steven, who wed in 2007 after five years of dating, are already parents to Lilly-Ella, 12, Lexie, 10 and Lourdes, five. Steven announced his retirement from professional football on November 24 after spending the last two seasons of his career with LA Galaxy in the United States. He is yet to announce his next career move, but has expressed a desire to move into management at some point in the future. The star held talks with League One club MK Dons following Karl Robinson’s departure in November but ruled himself out of the running for the job – claiming it has come ‘a bit too soon’ after his retirement.


Continuing the relaxed theme Alex opted for subtle touches of make-up, selected from a natural color palette
