Helen Flanagan welcomes baby girl and reveals quick labour following water birth

Actress Helen Flanagan has given birth to her second daughter with footballer Scott Sinclair after announcing she was pregnant back in December.

A few weeks before their newest arrival the couple also celebrated more happy news as Scott proposed to Helen during a family trip to Disney.

Helen has been documenting her second pregnancy on social media throughout so it was no surprise when she announced her daughter’s arrival with an adorable candid picture from the special day.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Helen confirmed the lovely news with a picture showing herself still in the birthing pool with her baby and husband Scott kissing her forehead.

Revealing that the couple have decided to call their daughter Delilah and that she had opted for a water birth, Helen wrote: ‘Our beautiful precious daughter Delilah Ruby Sinclair ๐ŸŒผ was born yesterday on the 22nd of June at 5.18pm weighing 6lbs 15oz ๐Ÿ’“ I had a very quick labour, a water birth with just gas and air, absolutely besotted so in love ๐Ÿ’“’.

She added: ‘Feel so blessed to have our healthy baby girl and I feel good after my labour xxx Thank you to all the amazing midwives at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Glasgow for everything ๐Ÿ’—โคxxx’.

Fans have been quick to offer their congratulations and the picture has over 130,000 likes.

One person wrote: ‘Massive congratulations to you as a new family of 4! X’.

Another said: ‘Congratulations on the wonderful news. Your baby daughter is beautiful.xx๐Ÿ˜˜โค’.

It wasn’t long before Helen and Scott’s eldest daughter got to meet her new little sister and the proud mum shared a lovely picture of her two daughters together.

Matilda is sat on a chair wearing a yellow summer dress and has the biggest smile on her face as she cradles little Delilah. Helen captioned the picture: ‘So lucky ๐Ÿ’ž Matilda was very quiet at the hospital ๐Ÿ˜„xxx’.
