Coronation Street's Helen Flanagan looks incredible as she reveals her post baby body just six weeks after giving birth


HELEN Flanagan looked incredible as she showed off her post-baby body just six weeks after giving birth to her third child.

The 30-year-old star admitted that her figure had "changed" during pregnancy – and that she takes her labour recovery "slowly".

The Coronation Street actress posted a video of herself to Instagram today, with some clips showing her while pregnant with baby son Charlie.

She then proudly showed off her little boy, who was dressed in an adorable Very Hungry Caterpillar outfit, before revealing her bod in a sports bra and leggings.

Helen goes on to strike a variety of poses in a full-length mirror, proudly displaying her bare stomach for all to see.

In the post's lengthy caption, she wrote: "✨💙 6 weeks postpartum 💙✨ Carrying a baby is such a miracle ✨ I haven’t really done any exercise since having Charlie apart from my pelvic floor exercises and enjoying walks with the baby carrier or pram and obviously running around after the two girls ✨

"My body has changed with each baby. My boobs have changed a lot with nursing each. The skin on my stomach has changed but I feel so lucky to able to have carried my babies.

"I took my labour recovery slowly. I think you feel different after each birth it just depends. I didn’t fancy a walk with the pram for about 2/3 weeks after. Wearing maternity pads are not super comfortable and I wanted to wear baggy tracksuit bottoms for weeks."

Helen poignantly went on: "As a mummy of girls I want to show them to be confident in their own skin and to love themselves. I do affirmations with them on the school run such as: 'I am amazing', 'I can do anything'"

She then joked: "Also Delilah gets her hands all over mirror another thing that needs a clean 😂."

Helen's followers flocked to the comment section to praise the star for being so open, with one writing: "Love how honest you are 🔥"

Another echoed: "You look fantastic & love the affirmations idea 😍❤️"

A third gushed: "🙌🔥You look fabulous"

Charlie is Helen's third child with fiance Scott Sinclair, with the pair already mum and dad to five-year-old Matilda and three-year-old Delilah.

The beauty has impressed fans with her relaxed approach to motherhood, with followers previously thanking Helen for normalising breastfeeding in public after she fed Charlie while on a shopping trip.

Helen previously told The Sun that her third pregnancy was such an ordeal that she is refusing to have any more children.

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 was 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.

Helen shot to fame when she joined Coronation Street at the age of nine, playing Rosie Webster from 2000.
