Helen Skelton is expecting her second child with husband Richie Myler, as she announced the news via Twitter
Helen Skelton is pregnant with her second child.
The 33-year-old television presenter - who already has 17-month-old son Ernie with her husband Richie Myler - announced the news in a series of tweets posted on her Twitter page on Saturday afternoon (26.11.16).
One tweet featured her son grinning and holding a board which read "Ready for my partner in crime, due Spring 2017."
The former 'Blue Peter' presenter captioned the photo: "Three getting set to become four. #newbaby #feelingblessed (sic)"
On another photo of the whole family, Helen simply wrote: "#newbaby (sic)"
And sources close to the couple say they're "excited" to welcome the bundle of joy next year.
One source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "They are excited Ernie will have a brother or sister. It's due in Spring 2017."
Helen's unborn baby won't have to worry about skipping meals either, as the blonde beauty recently revealed she's stopped counting calories and no longer worries about what she eats.
She said: "I spent most of my twenties watching my weight and I don't want to live my life by numbers now.
"I don't think you ever walk out in a dress and think, 'I feel amazing because I weigh 9st'. You either feel good or you don't."
Meanwhile, Helen - who made a name for herself presenting the Rio Olympics this summer - is passionate about yoga and uses the relaxation exercise as a quick way to stay fit whilst caring for her son.
She said: "I do it when Ernie wakes up at all sorts of hours' And Ernie is already joining in 'We call him Yogi Baby - he gets into a Downward Dog and shakes a leg - it's so cute!"
