Helen, who shares two-year-old daughter Matilda with Celtic footballer Scott, added she would love to have a third child one day, but not until they tie the knot.

“I definitely want another baby but I’m going to wait until I’m in my thirties, after we’re married,” she said.

Helen, 27, and Scott, 29, announced a second baby was on the way at Christmas, and just this week confirmed it will be another little girl.

The couple have been living part of the week in different cities over the last year, as Corrie is filmed in Manchester, while Scott is based in Glasgow for his football.

Helen, who returned to Corrie last year after a long break, previously told Loose Women that she and Matilda live with her parents in Manchester during the week and then travel to Glasgow at the weekends.

“It’s really lovely, actually. It’s nice to have a break,” she said.

“I suppose it isn’t easy but I really wanted to go back to work. I’ve always been really supportive of his career and he’s very supportive of mine.”

Helen has just said goodbye to Corrie once again, however, as she began maternity leave last week.

“I’m going out in very much a Rosie style – the storyline is hilarious,” she told Loose Women. “But I have enjoyed that about my character, doing comedy has been great.”

She’s also insisted Rosie will be back, but hasn’t given a timeline for her return.
