Helen shared some sweet behind-the-scenes photos to Instagram

It read: "Happiest of birthdays my love. What a week. And forevermore you will share your birthday week with your second born, sorry I couldn’t cross my legs any longer Xxx."

When the star announced that she was pregnant, she originally said the baby was due in December, so it seems the tiny tot made a slightly early arrival!

Helen and Jack have not yet revealed whether Wren Ivy has a baby brother or sister and have yet to share the baby's name.
