She and her rugby player hubby Richie Myler tied the knot in 2013.

Helen posted pictures on Twitter showing her young son with a board with the words "ready for my partner in crime".

The baby is due in spring next year.

Helen recently told how she still manages to fit in her love of yoga around her son Ernie.

"I do it when Ernie wakes up at all sorts of hours and Ernie is already joining in. We call him Yogi Baby - he gets into a Downward Dog and shakes a leg - it's so cute!" she said.
