Many of the actress’ fans flocked to her post to comment.

Michelle Keegan commented: “Awwwwww babe!!!! Congratulations so happy for you all!”
Samia Longchambon also penned: “Wow ahh congratulations to you all Helen!”
Helen followed up her post with a video of the family sharing their happy news on her Instagram story.
The Corrie star and footballer Scott have been together since 2009 and got engaged in 2018.
“I know this sounds weird but, because we’ve got children and have been together for so long, we already feel like we’e married.
“We were going to get married this year but my little sister is getting married next summer.
“I think it’s just because we’ve been together for so long, we’re just a bit lazy about.
“But, it would be nice to have the same name.”
Helen and Scott welcomed their first child together, daughter Matilda, now five, in 2015. Three years later, they had daughter Delilah.
The actress previously admitted she was anxious about her second birth after her experience with Matilda, who was 11 days overdue.
Speaking on her due date in 2018, she wrote on Instagram: “I ended up having an episiotomy with Matilda but I had the nicest, kindest most supportive midwife and I felt as labours go my pain was really managed. I had an epidural, gas and air and pethidine.
I do feel anxious about my labour with my baby now but I’m hoping I’ll feel maybe a little bit calmer this time.
“For me I felt I worked myself up too much in my head about my labour so I am hoping I can try and focus my mind more x.”
She added: “I think all women feel nervous about their labour as it’s only natural. Just hoping for the safe and healthy arrival of my baby girl and blessed to be able to carry two babies.”
