Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan reveals her new baby's gender and the dramatic way she found it out
Flanagan and her boyfriend Sinclair were enjoying a vacation in Dubai recently, where the hotel staff secretly found out the gender of their child and decided to surprise them
Coronation Street's pregnant star Helen Flanagan just announced the gender of the second baby, and also shared details of the surprising way in which she found out the gender for herself. The actress revealed last year in December that she was having a second baby with her boyfriend Scott Sinclair.
Flanagan, who is best known for her role in the popular television series as Rosie Webster, revealed that she's having a second daughter, and also spoke about the surprisingly spectacular way in which she found it out.
According to Flanagan, she and her boyfriend Sinclair were enjoying a vacation in Dubai recently, where the hotel staff secretly found out the gender of their second child and decided to throw them a surprise gender reveal party of their own.
The actress later told OK magazine, "They put balloons in a big, decorated box which was brought into the restaurant. We unwrapped it and, when the lid came off, pink balloons floated out!"
When asked if she was happy with another daughter being born into the house, Flanagan told the magazine, "We would have been thrilled if it was a girl or a boy, I'm just lucky to be able to have a baby. I will love this baby just as much as I do Matilda."
With a baby on the way, marriage plans shouldn't be too far for the expecting couple. When asked if marriage was on the cards anytime soon, the actress claims that she's already "pointed Scott in the right direction for an engagement ring.”
Definitely not the kind of person who minces words, the actress explained, “We’ve been together for nearly nine years and we’ll soon have two kids, so it’s about time. But I want to have a romantic proposal, first of all!”
The Coronation Street star filmed her final episode on Friday before taking a break from the show for her maternity leave. In a recent interview, the star revealed that she'll be making an exit from the show "in style."
"I'm going out in very much a Rosie style - the storyline is hilarious," she told Loose Women, adding: "But I have enjoyed that about my character, doing comedy has been great."
