Pregnant Helen Flanagan admits her third baby will be her last

Helen Flanagan has admitted her third pregnancy will be her last after being left bed-bound with extreme morning sickness.

The soap star, 30, has suffered with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) and revealed the symptoms have put her off having more children.

The condition, which Kate Middleton also suffered from, is characterised by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss and possibly dehydration.

Helen also suffered from the complication during her first two pregnancies but told how it has been far worse on her third.

Speaking to Fabulous magazine, she said: ‘I always really wanted four children, but after the hyperemesis this time, I could never go through it again. So the decision about having more children after this one has been taken out of my hands, really.

‘It’s funny, I always thought if I knew I was carrying my last baby I would feel really sad about it, but because of what happened, I don’t see it like that. I see it as a positive decision and one I’m completely happy with.’

Helen was forced to move back in with her parents while she was suffering with the condition as she needed help looking after daughters Matilda, five, and Delilah, two, while footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair goes to work.

She said: ‘It started as soon as I found out I was pregnant and I was in and out of hospital where they would give me anti-sickness jabs. I wasn’t able to look after the girls because I literally couldn’t get my head off the pillow. I was constantly being sick and couldn’t keep anything down.’

Helen added that she found it ‘so tough’ being bed-bound for so long and couldn’t even have the lights on at home because they made her feel dizzy.

The actress, who is due in March, also said that none of the medication she was given worked after she was on it for seven months when pregnant with Deliliah. 

Her condition has improved as of late and she now experiences ‘normal’ morning sickness and can carry on with her day.

Helen postponed her wedding to Scott last year due to the coronavirus pandemic and now the star reckons they won’t tie the knot until 2022. 

It comes after Helen held her youngest daughter Matilda in her arms on Monday as she declared her love for her ‘green-eyed wild one’ and said she can’t believe she isn’t going to be the ‘baby of the family anymore’.

The former Coronation Street star opened up about ‘mummy guilt’ after focusing so much attention on her eldest daughter Matilda, five, with homeschooling during the pandemic.

For the loving Instagram snaps, Helen sported a leopard print top and elasticated bottoms while her daughter rocked a grey T-shirt and jeans.

The mother daughter duo stared lovingly at each other as Helen captioned the post: ‘Can’t believe my little Delilah pops isn’t going to be the baby of the family anymore.

‘Had mummy guilt with Delilah recently, feel like I’m having to give Matilda so much attention with homeschooling and catching up and I really don’t want Delilah to feel pushed out before the baby arrives.

‘I can’t really put it into words but has any other mummy’s felt a bit emotional about their youngest while pregnant? Love my curly haired green eyed wild one so very much✨.’ (sic)
