Speaking to OK! magazine she said about having more babies: "I’m just going to see how I feel after baby number three…!".

However, she's since told her followers she doesn’t plan on having more children after her third pregnancy.

She said: “This is definitely my last pregnancy. I had Matilda at 24 and I wanted my children close together and it just feels right for me,” she added.

“I would never want to go through the hyperemesis again, it wouldn’t be fair on the children I already have and I want to give each child as much attention as each other.

"I thought I’d feel sad if I knew I was carrying my last but the hyperemis has been a blessing as it’s took that away."

Adding that they had no preferences, she said: "No, not at all! I’d love a little girl and I’d love a little boy. I’m just so lucky to be able to carry again and be able to experience another pregnancy and have that special time.

"Just because we’ve got two girls, doesn’t mean I’m bothered either way."

Helen Flanagan discusses chronic sickness

Helen opened up about how her pregnancy has not been plain sailing so far, as she was recently hospitalised with hyperemesis, a chronic sickness usually endured in the first trimester.

Helen got honest with fans about her difficulties with the condition as she posted two photos on her Instagram: "I’ve been a lot quieter on my social recently as I’ve had hyperemis gravidum. I had this with both girls but this time was on another level.

“I am so relieved to be over the worst and so very happy and so grateful for my baby. My mum has just been the best and I have no idea how I would have got through it without her!

“Scott’s been amazing with the girls and the nurses at the Royal Bolton Hospital were so lovely which I’m so grateful for. I just can’t wait to meet my little one so in love with them already."

The actress, who also suffered severe sickness in her previous pregnancies, told OK! magazine at the beginning of October that she was “over the worst of it” and “dead excited” to add to her brood in March.

"I’m just glad that I’m over the worst of it and I can enjoy my pregnancy now. I’m really excited I’m going to have my third baby – you have to take the positives from it."
