Some swear by pineapple, others wolf down curries, while a few opt for getting frisky to ‘bring on’ late babies. Not Helen Flanagan! Almost a week past her due date, and the former Corrie actress is passing the time by playing board games!
Helen posted the pic on her Instagram account, captioning it ‘Playing Monopoly’ and using the hashtags ‘waitingforbaby’ and ‘geeks’! The mum-to-be also used her feed to show off some seriously snazzy new specs, declaring she needs them for the ‘tired eyes’ she is expecting once baby arrives – or maybe it was really just to keep an eye on partner Scott’s money collecting during their Monopoly bout!
The loved-up couple had been due to welcome their baby on June 18, but instead of heading to a birthing suite on the day, enjoyed a romantic stroll, possibly to try and get things moving!
And while baby Flanagan-Sinclair is evidently quite cosy staying put and in no particular hurry to make an appearance, Helen has been making the most of her few remaining baby-free days with a bit of pampering. In fact, just the day before her due date she’d popped to the salon to get her fake tan topped up. “Thankyou @VicFakeBake @fakebakeunited for my spray tan on Wednesday evening made me feel so much better x x ,” she tweeted. Got to get yourself ready for those post-birth Instagram snaps, eh Helen!
There was also the serious stuff to be getting on with, the soon-to-be mum was also spotting visiting her midwife @Apaige1Talia told her, “Saw u tues at midwife visit Hun sat next to you, u look amazing blooming I’m 6 months look like a sack of spuds lol x”
And there’s always time to do a spot of shopping…Helen took to Twitter to thank The Pudding Club who sent her some fun polka dot maternity wear bras.
