Helen Flanagan Reveals She's Hoping For A Baby Boy: ‘A Daughter Would Be A Nightmare!'

Helen Flanagan is hoping to start a family with her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair in the near future and she’s already started thinking about whether she’d prefer a baby girl or boy, even though she’s not pregnant yet.

The former ‘Coronation Street’ actress has admitted that she’d rather have a boy, explaining that she thinks a girl would be “a nightmare”.

"I wouldn't care if I had a boy or a girl as long as they were healthy,” she told OK! magazine. “I would worry more if I had a little girl, because I'm quite headstrong.

“And if she was like me it would probably be a nightmare! So I think a little boy to start off with."

Helen recently revealed that she’d landed a new acting job and will star on BBC hospital drama ‘Holby City’ later this year.

Helen has been dating Scott since 2010, though the pair split for around 6 months in 2012 after a number of cheating allegations.

The actress recently hit out at claims that she has had plastic surgery, insisting that her face has changed as a result of growing up rather than going under the knife.
