Helen shared a photo to Instagram telling fans: "Non alcoholic cocktails at dinner @menagerie_restaurant. Not ready to leave my Delilah yet. Where I go, she goes (in the pram next to me).

"So nice to see my @jaybirmingham_ and thank you for my fresh hair @beauty_worksonline xxx."

No doubt it was a bit of a second birthday celebration for Helen, who marked her 28th on August 7.

Helen's fans told her they fully understood why she wouldn't want to leave Delilah at home yet, with many saying they feel the same way about their own children.

One wrote: "I still hate leaving my daughter and she's 18 months old."

Another said: "I hate leaving my 2 year old, it's all in our own time."

A third added: "Lovely picture. You're clearly such a dedicated mum! You're one of the only celebs I follow! I hope you don't unconsciously or consciously feel like you have to explain yourself for fear of judgemental busybody trolls.

"Your life is your life, when you leave your baby it's up to you and will be right for your family, when you decide to have a drink it will be your decision and the right one xx."

"But I want to have a romantic proposal, first of all."

We're pretty sure a proposal at Disney in front of the magical castle with your daughter watching and fireworks in the background counts as romantic!

Good work, Scott!
