HELEN Flanagan has revealed she was rushed to hospital following a bad accident – just five days before she gave birth to her son Charlie.
The 30-year-old, who is mum to daughters Matilda, six, and Delilah, three, with partner Scott Sinclair, badly bruised her coccyx after taking a tumble and was left ‘worried’ about the birth.
Speaking to OK! Magazine about the incident, Helen said: “Five days before my due date I’d had a bad fall and had to go to hospital.
“I didn’t want to mention it on social media because I was a bit anxious anyway. My mum was watching Delilah while I went to the physio as I’ve had a bad back, and when I opened my mum’s front door Delilah ran out.
“My mum lives on a busy road so I grabbed Delilah but I had sandals on and went flying, and landed badly on my coccyx.”
She added: “I badly bruised my coccyx. I was a bit worried about it. When I went to hospital after the fall they asked me if I wanted to be induced but I chose not to as I thought it would be easier to give birth naturally.”
"I badly bruised my coccyx, I was a bit worried."
Despite being diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum for the third time, which left her bed bound for months, Helen has had a u-turn about having another child.
The star – who is best known for playing Rosie Webster in Corrie – had previously said Charlie would be her last, but has now said she "hasn't ruled it out".
Earlier this year she had told The Sun's Fabulous magazine: "I always really wanted four children, but after the Hyperemesis this time, I could never go through it again. So the decision about having more children after this one has been taken out of my hands, really.
"It’s funny, I always thought if I knew I was carrying my last baby I would feel really sad about it, but because of what happened, I don’t see it like that. I see it as a positive decision and one I’m completely happy with.”
