The couple are one of thousands who are hoping to tie the knot sometime soon. Helen seemed to not be too stressed about the situation though, perhaps that's because she'll have her hands full with her new bundle of joy as well as her two daughters Matilda and Delilah – or perhaps it's because Helen and Scott are already like a married couple.
