Helen's pregnancy will come as no surprise as she previously admitted she was keen to add to her brood.

"I would really love more children," she told The Express earlier this year. "I've always said four but that will probably be too much, so I'll say three. When you have two children, you just love them equally. I would love a girl or boy as long as they're healthy. You're just lucky to carry a baby aren't you?"

The couple's happy news comes months after they announced they were postponing their 2020 wedding.

"I know this sounds weird but because we've got children and been together for so long, we already feel like we're married," she revealed before going into lockdown.

"We were going to get married this year but my little sister is getting married next summer, so maybe next year," she added. "I think it's just because we’ve been together for so long, we’re just a bit lazy about it. But it would be nice to have the same name."
