In an exclusive interview with OK! Magazine, ex-Corrie star Helen and boyfriend Scott Sinclair proudly show their baby girl Matilda off to the world. 

The TV star talks about how she screamed for an epidural during the birth, which lasted for three days.

“It was very surreal, I think I was in shock. I couldn't keep my eyes off her. It made the pain I was in all worth it – she's a dream come true,” she told OK! 

Helen was 11 days overdue before her contractions started and she went to hospital, but had to be induced the next day. 

“Matilda was in the back-to-back position, which made it even more painful. I was pushing for an hour and 40 minutes but Matilda kept turning so she wasn't coming out as quickly as she should have,” she said.

We have been loving Helen’s regular photos of Matilda on Instagram, such as this beauty below. 

Helen’s choice of baby name is quite popular in Britain, Matilda being 36 on the list of baby girl names from 2014
