Helen Skelton revealed her due date and opened up about her pregnancy, admitting it was “harder” this time around.
Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine on Tuesday, September 28, the TV personality was first asked if she knew when she was going to welcome her third baby with husband Richie Myler, with whom she already shares children Ernie, six. , and Louis, four years old.
“New Years Eve,” Helen replied immediately, before explaining that her first two children were both born earlier than expected.
She continued, “The other two were early, so my husband keeps saying, ‘Can we not go too far around Christmas because it’s the last.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, that’s fine with me! You can cook Christmas dinner and I will wake up. ‘”

Laughing at her response, Lorraine said: “Yes, that sounds very, very good. Yes, because your son Louis – he was born unexpectedly when you were in France on the kitchen floor for God’s sake. “
Helen welcomed her son Louis when she was alone with her eldest Ernie in France. Her husband Richie was in England at the time. No one arrived on time, so she had to give birth on the kitchen floor.
“I know, God bless him,” Helen replied. “I can’t tell if he was somehow proud or embarrassed. He says, ‘Was I born in the kitchen?’ and I’m like ‘Yeah’ and a lot of my friends think it’s so beautiful, a home birth.
“No one wants a load of gorgeous French firefighters at their feet while they deliver a baby, that’s what I had …”
Later, Lorraine asked her how Helen was feeling, to which she replied, “It definitely gets harder as you get older or maybe it’s only the first two times you do this thing where you say to yourself: “I am independent, I do not need a chair, I do not need special treatment … ‘
“Whereas now I’m a little older, I have the kids and I’m working. Now I’m like, ‘Oh, does anybody have a chair for me, does somebody have- Does he have a chocolate for me? “I really rinse it, you know. This is my last one so I have to make the most of it.
