It seems the celebrations were somewhat muted this year due to England's second lockdown. However, that didn't spoil the fun for the young family as Jack later posted a video of him swinging his little in the air to Simply Red's iconic tune Stars.

Fans rushed to post lovely comments underneath, with one writing: "Omg. I literally smiled from start to finish." Another remarked: "Oh my goodness!! SO sweet!" A third post read: "Aww!! Love that laugh! Plus her little posing..."

However, they are in no rush to expand their family any time soon. In November 2019, Helen was asked about the possibility and she told Event Magazine: "We are happy as we are. We are both freelance actors and we have to juggle everything, so at the moment we've no plans to have another baby. Not yet anyway. And we're not married – things are good as they are."
