Helen Flanagan confirms pregnancy
Helen Flanagan has confirmed that she is pregnant.
The former Corrie star is expecting a baby with her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair next year.
She tweeted: "Me and Scott are expecting our first baby in the summer. We are both so happy and so excited xxx."
Pictures in The Sun showed the actress wearing a bikini on a beach in Dubai, sporting what looks like a tiny b aby bump.
A friend told the paper: "It's a much-wanted pregnancy which makes it all the sweeter.
"Helen is so thrilled. She was bursting with excitement."
Helen's announcement comes not long after she told fans she wasn't feeling well - which might have been the first clue that the 24-year-old was pregnant.
Last month she tweeted that she was "poorly in bed" and earlier in December she told fans: "Nothing better than your mum looking after you when your feeling ill."
Helen's former co-star Brooke Vincent was among those who sent their congratulations. She tweeted: "Massive Congratulations To @helenflanagan1 & @Scotty_Sinclair .. Can't Wait To Become A Auntie - You Will Make An Amazing Family."
