Some pregnant women view pregnancy as a period to stay away from attention and kick back but we can tell you that Helen Flanagan is not one of such women.
The Coronation Street actress announced her second pregnancy back in December and she has remained active ever since.
And this past weekend the actress showed off her burgeoning baby bump during a getaway in Dubai.
The twenty-seven-year-old seems to have taken to pregnancy like a fish to water as evident from her appearance.
Soaking up the sun in Dubai, the actress wore a black bikini that accentuated most of her eye-catching physique.
Looking as beautiful as ever, Helen Flanagan enjoyed a dip in the waters of the Persian Gulf coast while at the Le Royal Meriden resort.
Her black bikini was a frill detailed triangle number showing that the actress has not lost any of her impressive fashion sense.
Her bikini top barely covered her prime assets while her matching bikini bottoms made sure the attention would be on her slender toned legs.
Strolling by the idyllic, calm waters, Helen Flanagan proved that she has not let herself go by virtue of the pregnancy.
Her arms which have always been finely toned were as prim as ever.
Working her blonde tresses into a sleek ponytail, the beauty continued her glamorous beauty look while keeping her mane in place with her statement shades.
This comes after Helen Flanagan revealed some unexpected news earlier this month.
She might still be very beautiful while pregnant but the star has revealed that the initial stages of the pregnancy weren’t easy at all.
According to the actress, there were fears that she had an ectopic pregnancy.
But that later turned out to be a water infection.
The news came a few short weeks after she announced that she was having her second child with her longtime boyfriend Scott Sinclair.
Helen and footballer boyfriend Scott, 28, have been together since 2009 but he now hints that they will get married ‘pretty soon’.
Speaking with OK! Magazine during the big reveal, she also talked about the struggles she has been through.
She confessed that she had hyperemesis gravidarum which lasted for five weeks.
‘I have just been really poor. I couldn’t go to work and do any filming. I had hyperemesis gravidarum; it lasted for five weeks.
‘It doesn’t sound like a long time but I was just so ill. Luckily it cleared up at 10 weeks. I know some women have a horrific time and end up in a hospital for nine months, so I was lucky, but it was horrendous.’
‘I did end up having to go to a hospital here in Glasgow. I was there for a good few hours and they put me on a drip. I had some scans, fluids and anti-sickness injections. I was so poorly at this point and was prescribed some tablets.’
The actress has also confessed that the pregnancy was a huge surprise.
Helen Flanagan said that after getting the news, she conducted three more tests just to make sure.
Well, it might have been a surprise but the actress is definitely adjusting admirably.
