Helen Flanagan reveals gender of second baby and the amazing way she would out
Helen Flanagan has revealed that she’s expecting a baby girl.
The Coronation Street star and her partner Scott Sinclair, who already share two-year-old daughter Matilda, found out the gender of their baby in a very special way.
Helen, who plays Rosie Webster in the ITV soap, and her Celtic footballer beau were on holiday in Dubai when the hotel staff secretly found out whether they were having a boy or a girl and planned a surprise reveal.
The star told this week’s OK! magazine: "They put balloons in a big, decorated box which was brought into the restaurant. We unwrapped it and, when the lid came off, pink balloons floated out!"
The 27-year-old has filmed her final scenes in Weatherfield as ditzy Rosie before going on maternity leave and says she will definitely return to the cobbles.
Looking to the future she says she definitely wants another baby when she’s in her 30s, and after she and Scott are married.
On the subject of marriage Helen says she’s been dropping huge hints.
“I’ve pointed Scott in the right direction for an engagement ring!” she says.
“We’ve been together for nearly nine years and we’ll soon have two kids, so it’s about time.
“But I want to have a romantic proposal, first of all!”
Speaking on the ITV1 chat show Loose Women the soap favourite, who is eight months pregnant, says her exit scenes are hilarious while being typically Rosie.
She told host Andrea McLean: “Well, I’m going out in kind of very much a Rosie style so it is hilarious, actually the storyline. It is really, really funny.
“But I really enjoy that actually about my character, doing the comedy I have really enjoyed that.”
Helen left Corrie in 2012 but returned as Rosie in February last year in comical scenes which saw the model and sister Sophie, played by Brooke Vincent, unwittingly used as drugs mules.
In December she announced the happy news that she and Scott were expecting their second child and opened up about the tough time she had been having so far during her pregnancy.
She revealed to OK! magazine that she had suffered with hyperemesis gravidarum, the same severe morning sickness that the Duchess of Cambridge has battled with.
