Coronation Street's Helen Flanagan packs her hospital bag as she prepares to give birth to third child

HELEN Flanagan has revealed she has packed her hospital bag as she prepares to welcome her third child with Scott Sinclair.

The 30-year-old former Coronation Street star updated fans on the final stages of her pregnancy journey on her Instagram Story.

Sharing a snap of a leather holdall in her home, the star has also enlisted a stylish Dior bag and a fluffy white blanket.

Alongside the shot, Helen wrote: "All ready incase we need to make a quick getaway scotty__sinclair."

In addition, the soap actress recently discussed her hospital bag essentials in a useful video on IGTV.

As well as baby-related items, Helen noted to take a range makeup and beauty products to help freshen up during labour.

Listing the items in the caption, Helen added: "My hospital bag 🤰💕🤱✨💼. I nattered on for so long I had to put this into two.

"Maybe if you're pregnant or just fancy a girly watch. I always find packing my hospital bag really exciting and I find it really interesting to know what other women pack."

The actress – who is currently 37 weeks pregnant – is already a doting mum to five-year-old Matilda, and two-year-old Delilah.

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.

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.

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.

Meanwhile, the star 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."

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