It sounds like these celebs, including Michelle Keegan, are totally smitten with Helen Flanagan’s new arrival

After being two weeks overdue, Helen Flanagan finally welcomed her baby into the world on Monday and we’ve been cooing over the pictures of her new arrival ever since.

But we’re clearly not the only ones who are over the moon for Helen, 24, and her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair following the birth of daughter Matilda Jessica. A host of celebs have sent lovely messages to the actress to congratulate her on the happy news.

Helen’s former Coronation Street co-star Michelle Keegan was one of the stars to post a Tweet for the new parents and what she wrote is pretty adorable.

Awww! Michelle’s kind words come after much speculation about her possibly becoming a mum herself at some point in the future. In fact during a recent interview her new hubby Mark Wright revealed that he wants a girl AND a boy – blimey!

Other Corrie cast members have been sending sweet messages to Helen too. Catherine Tyldesley – who became a first-time mum herself earlier this year when she welcomed son Alfie with fiancé Tom Pitfield – posted:

Brooke Vincent shared some particularly lovely words for new mum Helen. The actress played Helen’s on-screen sister in Corrie and the two clearly still share a lasting bond.

After sharing a picture of little Matilda on Instagram, Brooke wrote: ‘Congratulations to my beautiful friend/sister @hjgflanagan I’m so proud of you.. can’t wait to meet little Matilda.’

Helen was obviously touched by Brooke’s well wishes and replied: ‘Thankyou for my beautiful message ❤️ Love you x’

Corrie’s Samia Ghadie – who is currently expecting a baby with fiance Sylvain Longchambon – is equally thrilled for her former co-star.

Helen gave birth to Matilda on Monday and announced her arrival by sharing some adorable pictures on Instagram.

‘Our Matilda Jessica born on Monday the 29th of June 2015 at 8:04 am weighing 7lbs 6oz at Good Hope Hospital ❤️ @scotty_sinclair11 #sheismydream #dreamcometrue #mydreambaby ❤️,’ the actress captioned one of the snaps as she cradled her daughter.

Congrats, Helen and Scott!
