“The man meant Doula. From the mouths of men. (Photo from the start of the week – I just haven’t posted partly because my mom loves family which apps are ahead of insta but mostly because I still can’t find the appropriate words of thanks for our @ nhsengland @ nhsmillion …. captions, many of them). “

“Aw, congratulations to all of you. Enjoy every minute Helen xxx” commented for a second.

In the weeks leading up to her due date, Helen hosted Winter On The Farm on Channel 5.

She said she didn’t want to give birth on TV, but “it’s a risk she was willing to take.”

Helen and Richie are already the proud parents of sons Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

The former Blue Peter star said: “My two sons were precocious so I certainly don’t want to give birth live on TV but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

“If you’re going to work on a farm, at least you know you’re in good hands. Women farmers have a lot of experience in childbirth.

“I know there is a big difference between babies and lambs but it’s the same principle. Even though I asked Shona the vet to be in my rider!

“I want her to be there just in case of an emergency because she will know what to do.”

Helen – famous for her great treks and stunts like the wire walk – left her maternity leave to return to Cannon Hall Farm.
