The mother and daughter appeared to be enjoying the warmer weather as they headed out for what looked like a spot of alfresco lunch.

Little Elsie, dressed in pink, was seen giggling in her pram as her doting mum leant in for a “snog”.

Helen captioned the post: “All the snogs for your baby girl.”

She turned off comments on her post.

Who is Helen Skelton’s husband dating now?

Following his departure from the family home, Richie is now dating 32-year-old Stephanie Thirkill.

Stephanie is the daughter of Richie’s Leeds Rhinos boss Andrew, who is reportedly worth £175m.

I love you so much and I am so proud of who you are.

A source close to Helen claimed the star felt “let down” when news of her husband’s new romance emerged.

They said at the time: “Richie is insisting there was no crossover, that he began the romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down.

“They are still married, and their baby is literally four months old.”
