Celeb Bumpwatch: Helen Flanagan’s now 39 weeks!

Celeb Bumpwatch: Helen Flanagan's now 39 weeks!

Just days away from welcoming her first child, former Corrie star Helen shares a summery pic of her bump. While wearing a bikini (brave girl)…

Posing in a pink Freya two-piece and sporting a deep tan, actress Helen Flanagan shows the world that her baby is almost ready to make an appearance.

Now 39 weeks, Helen and long-term boyfriend Scott Sinclair don’t have long to go before they meet their first child. As this new Instagram bump-selfie suggests, it could be any day.

Helen first broke the baby news on Twitter, writing: 'Me and Scott are expecting our first baby in the summer. We are both so happy and so excited. Thank you for all your kind messages xxx.' 

The former Coronation Street actress and Aston Villa footballer Scott have chosen not to find out the baby’s gender. Last month, Helen enjoyed a baby shower decorated in yellow with bees as the theme.

The party and gifts may have been gender-neutral but the 24-year-old has a feeling that she’s expecting a son. She recently said: ‘I really think I'm having a boy but I don't know.’

Though the couple has been together for six years, they’re in no hurry to tie the knot. ‘We'll definitely get married at some point, but I'm happy with the way things are at the moment’ Helen told OK! magazine.

It’s always been babies rather than bridal gowns that have captured her imagination. ‘I know a lot of women think about their weddings, but I've just dreamed about having a baby.’

The super-groomed and glam actress has been keeping her fans up to date with the pregnancy via Instagram, posting pics of everything from her food cravings – curry, pineapple, green juices and Colin the Caterpillar sweets – to a laidback maternity wardrobe of comfy workout gear and maxi dresses.
