Helen Flanagan, 30, became a mother for the third time when she welcomed baby son Charlie back on March 25. The Coronation Street star – who shares her brood with footballer Scott Sinclair – has now opened up on suffering from a scary fall just days prior to her son arriving and how she had to make a dash to the hospital.

I was a bit worried

Helen explained that the accident happened when she went to pick up daughter Delilah from her mum’s house.

The star shared she was rushing in a pair of sandals she “went flying” and landed on her coccyx.

“I badly bruised my coccyx. I was a bit worried about it,” she told OK! magazine.

“When I went to hospital after the fall they asked me if I wanted to be induced but I chose not to as I thought it would be easier to give birth naturally.”

The painful fall meant she was unable to give birth on her back, she explained: “In the end I had to give birth on my side because I couldn’t lie on my back because it was so painful. 

“Thankfully Scott was an amazing birthing partner.”

Helen and Scott previously said their third baby will be their last.

In a post before Charlie’s arrival, the former soap star tagged her beau in the caption which read: “Our last baby.”

Ahead of her baby’s birth, Helen predicted the gender of her unborn baby.

She felt strongly that she would be having a girl this time around.

Sharing her thoughts in an Instagram update, she penned: “I don’t know what I’m having, but if I was to predict I think I’m having another daughter!

“My girls are super excited about having a new baby brother or sister and I know that Delilah and Matilda will be brilliant big sisters.”

The former Coronation Street star announced her pregnancy in September last year.

The actress shared a sweet snap with Scott and their two daughters Matilda, three, and one-year-old Delilah to share their baby joy.

“Our 3rd baby arriving March 2021 @scotty__sinclair,” Helen gushed.

Helen also admitted she “would love to go back” and play Rosie Webster in Corrie sometime in the future.

With a total of 13 years in Weatherfield under her belt, the star last appeared on the soap three years ago.

“I would love to go back because of course I want to achieve things for myself, but I have to put my children first.

“They’re at the ages where they have so many activities and, while I can get childcare, my children want me a lot of the time. 

“There’s obviously lots of things I’d like to pursue work-wise. I’d love to do theatre and a drama,” she added.
