As her bump gets bigger, Helen Flanagan starts thinking about what sort of a mum she'll be

After disappearing from Instagram for a few days (again!), Helen Flanagan is back on social media – yay!

The pregnant actress returned in style on Monday following nearly a week-long absence from the site by posting a photo of her growing tum. Mum-to-be Helen, 24, posed for a selfie in an elegant fitted frock which really clung to her neat little baby bump – cute!

‘Love this knit dress from @riverisland #stylethebump 💜,’ Helen captioned the photo. We love it on you too, Hels!

The former Coronation Street star completed her classy look with a simple ponytail and minimal accessories. She’s one stylish mama-to-be!

Helen‘s fans were just as excited as us to see her back on Instagram and many expressed their awe at her chic pregnancy style.

‘Looking good babe @hjgflanagan xxxx,’ one commented. Another gushed: ‘You look stunning @hjgflanagan totally embracing pregnancy! Hope i look just as good when i have a baby! 💗🙌 xx’

It’s been two weeks since Helen‘s last bump photo and it’s definitely grown a little since then – exciting!

After suffering from terrible morning sickness during the past few months, it’s lovely to see Helen looking so well. Last week the star had complained of heartburn on Twitter but she seems to be feeling good this week.

Helen‘s first child with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair – which she has said she thinks is a boy – is due in June. With just a few months to go until she becomes a mum, the pretty brunette has already been thinking about what sort of a parent she’ll be.

On Tuesday the expectant mother shared an image with her Instagram followers reading, ‘Your child will follow your example, not your advice’.

‘✨ I want to be the best I can be 👶♥️✨,’ Helen added. We’re sure you’ll be a lovely mum, Hels.
