Time is ticking on for expectant mother Helen Flanagan.

And with not too long to go, the actress has been keeping her fans updated with her growing pregnancy tum.

The 24-year-old star looked the epitome of summer brightness in her latest social media snap, shared on her Instagram page on Wednesday.

Taken from above and showing off her pale yellow figure-hugging River Island dress – which she was spotted wearing earlier in April – her burgeoning tum is fully shown and perhaps looks even bigger, thanks to the bird’s eye view angle.

The dress’ pale yellow sunshine shade worked well with her glowing skin, and was finished with a lovely mesh detail across the chest and hemline.

She added no caption to her lovely photo, other than a shout-out to her boyfriend and the father of her child, Scott Sinclair.

Former Coronation Street actress Helen has around nine weeks to go until she and her man – with whom she has been in a relationship for over four years – welcome their new addition.

And she has been sharing personal pictures following her journey on her Instagram page, showing off her changing figure ahead of the birth of her firstborn.

But she won’t be able to fully get into the nesting phase as yet: the pretty brunette and her footballer boyfriend Scott are currently living in a hotel in Sutton Coldfield as he is on loan from Manchester City to Aston Villa.

However, a move to the Midlands may be permanent for the couple after Scott spoke this week of his hopes to sign for Villa.

Of course, the impending arrival of the young couple’s first child will also be weighing on their mind in the hope of some permanency so they can move into a family home.

The ex-soap star is due to give birth to their first child in the middle of June, although Helen admitted they don’t know the sex of the baby.

While she has always said she wasn’t bothered about getting married before having a baby, she insisted the pair would tie the knot in the future.

She told OK! magazine recently: ‘We’ll definitely get married at some point. Scott knows what type of ring I want – one with a huge rock on it.’

‘Since I’ve been pregnant we’ve been really happy – I think it’s because you share that bond.’
