Despite relishing this moment with her youngest child, Helen is also a doting mum to her two sons Ernie, six, and Louis, four – all of whom she shares with estranged husband Richie Myler.

It's been a tumultuous time for Helen, who recently announced the end of her marriage to Richie after eight years. Last week, Helen returned to her presenting duties after some time away from the screen.

News of the split came just four months after the former couple welcomed their third child. It has since been revealed that Richie is in a new relationship with Stephanie Thirkill, the daughter of the multi-millionaire President of the Leeds Rhinos club he plays for. Stephanie and Richie reportedly met at a rugby dinner last autumn.

Although they met whilst still married, Richie has insisted there was no crossover and that he began the romance with Stephanie after his marriage collapsed.
