Helen Skelton announces birth of second child with family photo

By Katie Archer

The TV presenter is now a mum of two.

Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton has announced she has given birth to her second child.

The TV star posted a black and white photo of her family’s hands holding a baby’s hand to Instagram with the caption: “Family of four”.

Helen, who presented Blue Peter from 2008 to 2013, already has a 22-month-old son, Ernie, with rugby-player husband Richie Myler.

The 33-year-old did not share any other details about the new baby, but Richie shared the same photo to his Instagram account captioned: “Blessed #3becomes4.”

In November, Helen announced that she was expecting again by sharing an Instagram shot of Ernie holding a chalkboard with the announcement “Ready for my partner in crime due spring 2017″.

Helen made headlines in January when she shared her experience of being asked to leave a playgroup because her son was having a tantrum.

She wrote on Instagram: “Worst day of my parenting life. Asked to leave after 20 mins. Screamed the place down screaming his version of ‘mama let’s go!’ Constantly. #parentfail #kidswinning #mumfail #childcare.”

Helen and Richie have been married since December 2013 and welcomed Ernie in June 2015.
