Helen Flanagan has just one week before her due date, and she’s getting ready for her baby’s arrival in the best way possible – by soaking up the sunshine.

Helen, 24, was making the most of the sunshine and her relaxation time today ahead of her baby’s arrival in just a week.

The pretty starlet and her long-term partner Scott Sinclair will become first time parents when their tot arrives in the next few weeks.

She recently had a baby shower and as the sex of their little one is still a surprise it was kept gender neutral with a yellow ‘bee theme’.

Helen has previously admitted that she’s fairly convinced that it will be a boy.

“I really think I’m having a boy but I don’t know,” she told OK! magazine.

Before Helen revealed that she was pregnant with her first child, the star spoke openly about her desire to have a baby and become a mother with her footballer partner.

The pretty model is impatiently waiting and she has also shared pictures of the things that are known to bring on labour – if you believe in old wives’ tales.

Helen has shared pictures of the things she is eating to speed things up including pineapple and a hot curry .

It is believed that feasting on spicy sauce may fire up your digestive system and bowels and, consequently, your uterus.

And Bromelain is a combination of enzymes found naturally in fresh pineapple. It’s believed that when pregnant women eat pineapple, bromelain softens the connective tissue of the cervix, bringing on labour.

Other wives’ tales include walking, nipple stimulation or having sex – obviously the star won’t be able to share that information with fans!
