Helen, 24, has been in a relationship with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair for around five years and the couple are said to be "thrilled" by the news.

A source told The Sun: "It's a much-wanted pregnancy which makes it all the sweeter. Helen is so thrilled."

Reveal contacted Helen's rep who has confirmed their exciting baby news. Congrats, guys!

Helen, who starred in the 2012 series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! has made no secret of the fact she wants to start a family with Scott - who plays for Manchester City.

At the beginning of the year, the actress spoke out in an interview and said she planned to be pregnant by the end of 2014.

Helen told The Mirror: "I'm obsessed with kids. I'm probably the broodiest woman in Britain.

"Scott knows I want loads of kids and he's totally up for it. I talk about it all the time."

Helen and Scott have been in a long-term relationship for around five years, having taken a brief break in 2013. The couple live together in Cheshire.

The TV star has not mentioned her pregnancy on Twitter, however she has told fans about experiencing "crazy dreams" - which can be a sign - and feeling poorly.

"Nothing better than your mum looking after you when your feeling ill," she said earlier this month.
