Helen Flanagan shows off her 37-week baby bump as she models lingerie as she prepares to welcome her third baby

HELEN Flanagan proudly showed off her 37-week baby bump by modelling lingerie as she prepares to welcome her third baby.

The 30-year-old star took to her Instagram page today to share the stunning snaps as she plugged a Mother's Day promotion on her website.

The beauty is glowing in the photos, which show her wearing products from the site's maternity range.

The black bra and knickers combo offer maximum support for Helen's changing body as she enters full term - with one of the photos taken from a low angle to highlight her bump in all its glory.

The former Coronation Street actress has her blonde hair styled into loose curls around her shoulders, and she is wearing minimal make-up.

A bold gloss draws attention to Helen's full lips, and her blue eyes are striking under a lashing of mascara.

She captioned the post: "Full term 🤰 37 weeks 💫 wearing the Jessica set @delilahrubyuk x our precious last baby @scotty__sinclair x"

Helen previously told The Sun that her third pregnancy has been such an ordeal she is refusing to have any more children with husband Scott Sinclair.

The star suffered from Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), an extreme sickness condition, throughout both of her previous pregnancies - but it was worse than ever this time around.

Helen has had to have spells in hospital because of it, and been left bed-bound and unable to care for her daughters; five-year-old Matilda, and two-year-old Delilah.

She told us in January: “I always really wanted four children, but after the hyperemesis this time, I could never go through it again. So the decision about having more children after this one has been taken out of my hands, really."

HG affects up to 5% of pregnant women, including Kate Middleton who was hospitalised because of it during her first pregnancy.

Helen is due to give birth at the end of the month, and she doesn't know whether she is having a boy or a girl - and is unbothered either way.

She previously explained: "I would love another girl, I think I’m good with girls because I know what to do!

"But I would equally love a son because it would be a completely new experience."

She added: "We’ve picked our names and gone for quite traditional ones because they’ll never go out of fashion.”

Helen Flanagan says she's struggling with aches and pains during third pregnancy

Helen shot to fame when she joined Corrie at the age of nine, playing Rosie Webster from 2000 until 2012.

She briefly returned in 2017 before going on maternity leave with Delilah the following year.

And after after Delilah’s birth, Helen decided the commute between Manchester where Corrie is filmed and Glasgow, where the family was based while Scott played for Celtic, was too much.

However, Helen has not ruled out returning to the cobbles in the future, and there is every chance that Rosie will return to Weatherfield once more.
