Helen Flanagan Trying For A Baby With Scott Sinclair, Says She Wants To Be A 'Young Mum'

Helen Flanagan has revealed that she and her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair are trying for a baby.

The former ‘Coronation Street’ star - who first began dating Scott in 2010 - has spoken about her desire to become a mother in the past, but recently revealed she was waiting to try for a baby as she was taking medication for a skin condition.

However, in an interview in the latest issue of Closer magazine, Helen reveals that she and Scott are trying for a baby - and she’s hoping to get pregnant sooner rather than later.

She says: “I’ve been on some really strong acne medication but I’ve just come off it because I’m ready to start trying for a baby with Scott.

“I’ve always wanted to be a young mum and I now feel ready. It’s something I’ve wanted for ages and Scott’s going to be a great dad. I just hope it doesn’t take me too long to get pregnant. And I’m not bothered about getting married beforehand.”

The couple recently set up a new home together in Bath, and it sounds like Helen’s settled into her new house very well, telling the magazine: “It’s been really fun nesting with him.

“I feel like I’ve finally got time on my hands to invest in our relationship - something I didn’t have before because I was always working.”

Talking about her motherhood earlier this year, Helen revealed she’d really like to have a baby boy, joking that a mini version of herself would be “a nightmare”.
