Helen Skelton says third baby will be her last as she recalls traumatic birth

10/13/2021

Helen Skelton has said her third baby will definitely be her last, as she revealed she gave birth to her second child on the kitchen floor surrounded by firemen.

The Blue Peter and Countryfile star is expecting her third baby with husband Richie Myler, four years after they welcomed their second son Louis.

That birth was traumatic because Helen ended up giving birth alone in France while Richie was away.

She opened up about it on ITV's Lorraine, after host Lorraine Kelly mentioned that Louis had been born "unexpectedly".

"I know, God bless him," said Helen, 38.

"I can't tell if he was sort of proud or embarrassed. He says, 'I was born in the kitchen?' and I'm like 'Yeah' and lots of my friends think it's so lovely, a home birth.

"Nobody wants a load of gorgeous French firemen at their feet while they're delivering a baby, which is what I had…

"They'd never done that before and were so excited, I just said, 'Get back around my head please'."

Helen confirmed in September that she and Richie were expanding their brood, sharing a snap on Instagram of herself clutching her bump while her sons Louis and Ernie rested their hands on her tummy.

"#Grateful," she captioned the adorable snap.

However, during her chat with Lorraine she admitted that pregnancy is "harder" this time around.

She added: "Or maybe it's just the first two times around, you're doing that thing where you're like, 'I'm independent, I don't need a chair, I don't need special treatment.'

"Whereas now, I'm a little bit older, I've got the kids and I'm working. Now I'm like, 'Oh, has anyone got a chair for me, has anyone got a chocolate for me?' I'm really rinsing it."

Helen also confirmed that she and Richie were stopping at three children, telling the talk show host that she had to make the most of it because: "It's my last one."
