The star's fans were quick to comment on the precious picture, with one telling Helen: "That's such a lovely picture Helen… moments to treasure…everlasting memories… little Elsie Kate has a miniature version of your jumper, that's lovely!"

Another follower wrote: "Beautiful, cherish every second," and a third posted: "But she’s so tiny and perfect."

Helen recently told HELLO! that there is a special meaning behind daughter's middle name.

"We were always going to have Kate as a middle name after my cousin, who sadly passed away when we were in our 20s," she explained. "I was really close to her; she was a scientist and crazy cool."

Helen also revealed that she and her husband had no preference over the sex of their third child despite people assuming they wanted a girl. "But it wasn't like that for us," she said. "We just wanted more children and we wanted the surprise."

Even though they decided not to find out, Helen was so sure she was having a daughter that she painted the nursery pink. "

I was convinced I was having a girl," she revealed, as she suffered from pregnancy sickness. "And now I am totally embracing the pink. With a rugby player and two feral boys, my world is testosterone-filled enough."
