Helen Flanagan has said she’d love to have four children, though fiancé Scott Sinclair would be happy with three.

The Coronation Street star told Mail Online she adores being a mum to daughters Matilda, three, and Delilah, who was born in June, and is already thinking about more kids.

And she joked Scott should prepare for her to get her own way!

She said: “I really want to have four. I think Scott’s like ‘maybe three’ but I don’t know, we’ll see how we go, but I definitely want more. I’m sure I’ll get my own way eventually.”

For now, the soap star has her hands very full with looking after two children and planning a wedding, after Celtic footballer Scott, 29, popped the question in June, just weeks before Delilah’s birth.

The family live in Glasgow, where Scott is based with his team.

Helen told the newspaper she’s “lucky” that Scott is a “hands-on dad” given they live away from both families and only have each other in Scotland.

“I think it’s really important to make that time for each other,” she added. “We’re going to try and have a date night where you’re not just parents, you’re a couple.”


Meanwhile, in a separate interview with The Sun’s Fabulous magazine a  few weeks ago, Helen also opened up about her desire to have a large family.

She said: “I hate the thought of never having another baby. I don’t think I could ever say: ‘Oh, this is my last baby,’ because it would make me feel too sad. So I’d love to keep going on and on and on. I don’t know if Scott would like that, but I just love babies.”

Helen added: “I had a water birth with Delilah and I remember afterwards saying: ‘Never again, never again,’ and now I’m like: ‘Oh my god I can’t wait to have another one!'”

The star is currently on maternity leave from her role as Rosie Webster in Corrie but has vowed she will return, as long as work fits in with caring for her children.

She told ITV’s Lorraine earlier this month: “I miss everyone so much. I really miss Sally [Dynevor], who plays my mum. We are really, really close.

“I would love to [come back], definitely. It needs to be something that obviously works around the girls.

“I do miss everyone. I miss the social bit as well. I think it’s important when you have a newborn baby to still go out and meet other mums with babies and go to baby groups so you don’t feel on your own with the baby.

“I think it’s really important to get out there and not just stay in the house.”
