'Home': Helen Skelton is reunited with husband and baby boy

Share this:

She had everybody talking about her stylish outfit choices while presenting the Rio Olympic Games, but for Helen Skelton there's nothing more important than her family. The 33-year-old touched down in France this week and wasted no time in cuddling up to husband Richie Myler and their baby boy Ernie.

In snap posted to Instagram, the former Blue Peter host and her boys looked over-the-moon to be back together. Helen simply captioned it: "Home xx."

Her followers were quick to compliment the gorgeous family and praised Helen once again for an amazing job in Rio. One wrote: "You did an incredible job Helen… congratulations! X."

Another added: "Great presenting Helen. Kept the swimming real. I hope the BBC realise what a Gem they've got. X."

Last year Helen and rugby player Richie introduced little Ernie exclusively in HELLO! Magazine, and she admitted she's loving the relaxed pace of motherhood.

Helen explained: "I can't believe how much I love being a mum. It's the best thing I've ever done. I didn't think I would love it as much as I do. It's ten times better than I expected.

"I feel like I've been on happy pills ever since Ernie was born. When my friends with babies used to tell me how they spent their days, I couldn't imagine liking it. But it's brill."

And now the family are gearing up for their next adventure, after Richie signed a deal to play for French team the Catalans Dragons.

Helen added: "We're both taking French lessons. It's exciting, but also a bit weird to be moving to a different country with a different language."
