Helen Flanagan has given birth to her first child with boyfriend Scott Sinclair.
The former Coronation Street beauty, who was nearly a fortnight past her due date, is reportedly recovering in a hospital in Birmingham after giving birth on Monday.
According to The Sun, one pal sent their best wishes, saying: “Helen gave birth on Monday in Birmingham and she is still there recovering. It is hoped that she’ll be back home in a day or so.
“It is very exciting for them and both of their families.”
The 24-year-old model and actress was expected to give birth in mid-June and doctors decided to induce her in the past few days. It is not yet known what sex the baby but we cannot wait to find out.
Her friend revealed Helen was hoping to have the baby naturally but the doctors decided it was for the best, adding that she is “exhausted but doing well.”
A few months ago the star said she was the “happiest I’ve ever been” with Aston Villa player Scott and revealed the pair plan to tie the knot soon.
She said: “We’ll definitely get married at some point. Scott knows what type of ring I want — one with a huge rock on it.
The couple have been keeping themselves occupied while waiting for the baby to arrive and Helen shared a snap of them playing Monopoly, writing: “Playing Monopoly #waitingforbaby #geeks.”
