Former Coronation Street star, Helen Flanagan, says she doesn’t plan to have any more children after suffering from a pregnancy disorder.

The former Westholme School pupil said her nine-month-old baby, Charlie, is likely to be her last after she suffered from ‘extreme’ morning sickness throughout her pregnancy.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Helen and her fiancé, Scott Sinclair, said they have “completed” their family now they have their little boy.

Helen said: “We have our three and we feel that’s enough for us.

"Our family is complete. Me and Scott started having kids when I was 24 and he was 26, so we’ve had that lovely stage with the kids, but we think it will be nice to enjoy all their different stages now and enjoy some time just the two of us.

“I also want to focus on work projects.”

In the interview, Helen also opened up about her extreme morning sickness, or hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which she said was a contributing factor in this decision.

Helen said: “I think a lot of women are very broody and we always feel like we could have more, but because I was so unwell in my pregnancies the idea of having another has almost been taken out of my hands.

“I don’t think I could go through that again. It was so difficult with the other children and Scott and my mum had to do everything as I was bed bound for four months.

“The worst bit was the mum guilt because I couldn’t do normal things with the kids.

“As soon as I gave birth to Charlie it was like, ‘I can clean my kitchen without being sick!” It actually made me feel very isolated and low.

“Even lights made me feel sick, so all I could do was lie down. I could hear the kids asking, ‘Where’s Mummy?’ and that was so hard.

“I decided it would be too hard on the children to go through that again.”

Earlier this year, Helen shared an image of herself suffering with morning sickness while pregnant with Charlie.

She opened up about the illness and said: She said: “This was around this time last year. I get a lot of direct messages from other women on HG. It’s a comfort to know you’re not just on your own.

“For me it lasted around three months. I can’t imagine what it’s like to last the whole pregnancy.

“The worst was 100 per cent not being able to look after the girls.”

She added: “I remember I felt really emotional at my three month scan and cried as it felt like I had such a mountain to climb and that was nearing the end.

“I remember the nurse said to me it would calm down once the placenta was made.

“I was lucky that with each baby it calmed down at three months… but the HG got stronger though in each pregnancy.”
