Love blossomed and in September 2017, they welcomed their adorable little girl, Wren Ivy. However, prior to her relationship with Jack, the mum-of-one split from her ex-husband Oliver Boot in 2015.

Meanwhile, Helen, who is famed for playing Trixie Franklin in the BBC period drama, previously revealed that she and Jack are in no rush to expand their family. "We are happy as we are," she told Event Magazine. "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."
