"It was a little bit of a surprise"

Congratulations are in order for Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan and her boyfriend Scott Sinclair who are expecting their second child.

Helen and Scott confirmed the happy news today to OK! Magazine but admitted the pregnancy came as a bit of a shock.

Scott told the publication: “It was a little bit of a surprise. I was away in Dubai with my family. Helen couldn't come as she was filming. She found out on a Thursday but had to wait until I got home five days later to tell me."

And although Helen wasn’t expecting to be pregnant she was delighted when she found out: "I did three more tests just to make sure it was correct! I had a very strong feeling I was pregnant, so I wasn't surprised.”

"I was very happy, but I was a bit taken aback as this baby wasn't in the plan. I knew I would feel a lot better once I'd told Scott."

Helen and Scott are already parents to two year old Matilda and the couple are expected to welcome their second child next June.
