Actress shares her exciting baby news on Twitter!

It was reported this morning that former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan was expecting her first child with fiancé, Scott Sinclair – and now she has confirmed the exciting news herself!

The mum-to-be took to Twitter earlier today and conformed that she is pregnant, tweeting: “Me and Scott are expecting our first baby in the summer. We are both so happy and so excited xxx.”

Helen has made no secret of the fact she wants to be a mum and has spoken about it at length over the past two years, despite a brief break-up from Scott: “I really wanted a baby when me and Scott were together and now obviously I’m glad we didn’t have one.” However, things have changed dramatically since the pair rekindled their romance this year and the baby plan was put back on track!

Congratulations to the happy couple on their exciting news!
