During a recent appearance on Loose Women, Helen admitted that although they are excited to expand their family, her pregnancy came as a complete shock to them. Recalling the moment she discovered she was going to be a mum again, she said: "I knew I was pregnant. I remember doing the test and telling my mum. I waited until Scott was back in person to tell him. He was so happy. It was a surprise. I had just gone back to Coronation Street and I was really enjoying that."
