How old is Helen’s first child and who is her husband?

Helen, who plays Trixie Franklin in the BBC midwifery drama, already has one daughter with her husband Jack Ashton.

The pair met on the set of the show and married in 2016. Daughter Wren Ivy was born in September 2017.

She’ll be four by the time the new baby arrives at the end of the year.

Helen had a difficult pregnancy with Wren and ended up delivering her three weeks early.

“My baby was delivered early because I developed a liver condition called ICP,” she explained.

As such, she is now a patron of ICP Support, who helped her through her ordeal.
