She welcomed her second child with fiancé Scott Sinclair in June.
And Helen Flanagan has now introduced her baby daughter, Delilah Ruby Sinclair, in a photoshoot with OK! Magazine, showing off her adorable bundle of joy.
In the interview, the Coronation Street actress, 28, who got engaged to Scott in May and one month before giving birth, discussed her painful second delivery as well as her upcoming wedding.
She said: ‘I felt very anxious during my pregnancy about giving birth naturally, so I had mentioned to Scott that I’d like a Caesarean section – but when I read that there is a six-week recovery time, I realised it was unrealistic with Matilda to look after too.
‘I opted for a water birth instead, which I loved. Luckily, my labour went really well although it was much more painful than my first birth.
‘At points I felt like I was about to explode because the contractions were so intense!’
She jokingly added: ‘Delilah’s birth was so quick – Scott almost missed it!’
Despite only getting engaged three months ago, Helen admitted that their exciting milestone ‘feels like a lifetime ago’.
The soap star announced that she was expecting her second child with footballer partner Scott in December, they already have daughter Matilda, three.
