Helen Flanagan talks about her pregnancy in her first ever interview since announcing that she and Scott Sinclair were expecting their first child together.
In an interview with OK! magazine, she said: ‘Scott’s known I’ve wanted to be a mum since pretty early in our relationship. So when I turned 24 we both felt it was our time to finally have our baby.
‘A mum really is everything I’ve genuinely wanted to be. I think it’s the best thing you can be! I’m convinced it’s a boy – I love the name Flynn.’
It hasn’t been plain sailing though as the model has suffered with crippling morning sickness telling the publication:
‘I’m getting better now, but I’ve never known anything like it. I’ve only really been sick from hangovers but you feel like you’ve got a constant hangover.
‘I couldn’t get out of bed some days because I was throwing up so much. At the most I’d be sick five times a day. I literally didn’t leave the flat for ages.
‘The most I did was go to the shops and actually I was sick in Marks and Spencer once, as well as outside Starbucks.’
Helen also talks about her relationship with footballer Scott Sinclair, 25: ‘We’ve been together for five years so we’re just like best friends. We do everything together. We’re very compatible.’
‘Scott will be a great birthing partner too. He’s so calm and together. Plus because the baby’s due in June, which is off-season, he’ll be around to help out with the baby. I know he’ll be a fantastic dad.’
Helen announced that she was to become a parent on Twitter last month, saying:
‘Me and Scott are expecting our first baby in the summer. We are both so happy and so excited. Thank you for all your kind messages xxx.’
She also retweeted a message from Brooke Vincent, who wrote: ‘Massive Congratulations To @helenflanagan1 & @Scotty_Sinclair .. Can’t Wait To Become A Auntie. You Will Make An Amazing Family.’
