Helen Flanagan has opened up on the struggles of her third pregnancy as she revealed it hasn’t been easy.
The former Coronation Street actress, 30, is expecting her third child with her ex Celtic footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair.
Despite her excitement about meeting the newest addition to their family, Helen has admitted that the past few months have been tough as she deals with the ups and downs of pregnancy.
The expectant mum also revealed they are keeping the gender a surprise but have already chosen a name for the little one.
Helen penned her honest thoughts in two emotional Instagram snaps on Sunday.
In the first pic, Helen cradles her blossoming baby bump as sits at the side of a spa swimming pool in a bikini.
She wrote: “Super grateful for my pregnancy and I can’t wait to hold my little one but to be honest I’m not really enjoying this pregnancy”.
“This time round I just don’t feel like I’m enjoying it the same. Maybe because it’s my third and I just feel super tired and I know it’s going to be full on, I always just feel nauseas a lot and I just don’t feel myself since I fell pregnant.
“My mum keeps telling me to enjoy it as it’s extremely likely this is my last pregnancy. I was really unwell this pregnancy with hyperemesis and had to move back to my parents’ house as I was so unwell and couldn’t look after the children.
“It was really miserable and this time round so strong, wouldn’t want to do that to the children I already have, and I relied on my mum for everything. I think there’s a sadness for women when they know it’s their last however for me that’s being taken away by the hyperemesis so that’s one positive.”
Helen finished off her incredibly honest post by saying how lucky she is to be able to fall pregnant due to the fact so many women close to her cannot have children.
The actress announced her third pregnancy back in September.
She shared a snap with Scott and their two daughters Matilda, three, and one-year-old Delilah to share their baby joy.
“Our 3rd baby arriving March 2021 @scotty__sinclair,” Helen gushed.
Scott, who has been with Helen for 10 years, proposed last June during a family trip to Disneyland Paris.
