The 'Coronation Street' actress took to Instagram on Monday night (21.09.20) to reveal she is expecting her third child with fiance Scott Sinclair, and she is "so relieved" to be over the worst of hyperemis gravidum, which causes excessive nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

She wrote: "I've been a lot quieter on my social recently as I've had hyperemis gravidum. I had this with both girls but this time was on another level. I am so relieved to be over the worst and so very happy and so grateful for my baby. My mum has just been the best and I have no idea how I would have got through it without her! Scott's been amazing with the girls and the nurses at the Royal Bolton Hospital were so lovely which I'm so grateful for. I just can't wait to meet my little one so in love with them already. I'm going to film an IGTV on hyperemis soon and any other mummy's to be with hyperemis I feel you (sic)"

Helen - who already has daughters Matilda, three, and 15-month-old Delilah, with Scott - is due to give birth in March.

To announce her baby news, the Rosie Webster actress shared pictures on Instagram which showed her two daughters holding pictures of her sonogram.

She added the caption: "Our 3rd baby arriving March 2021 @scotty__sinclair (sic)"

The couple got engaged at Disneyland Paris in 2018, but in February they postponed their wedding.

She said at the time: "I know this sounds weird but because we've got children and been together for so long, we already feel like we're married.

"We were going to get married this year but my little sister is getting married next summer, so maybe next year.

"I think it's just because we've been together for so long, we're just a bit lazy about it. But it would be nice to have the same name."
