The birthday celebrations came after Helen revealed that she wouldn’t rule out having a fourth child, despite health complications in her last pregnancy.
Despite her last pregnancy causing her to remain bed-bound, Helen is keen to further grow her family with Scott.
‘When you feel so dreadful, you do think, “No way, I will absolutely never have another baby”, but as soon as Charlie arrived I just thought, “You’re so worth it,” Helen told the platform.
Helen suffered badly with hyperemesis gravidarum during her last pregnancy.
Sharing her experience with the extreme morning sickness, Helen explained on Instagram: ‘It got worse with each pregnancy. It was worth everything but it was horrendous.
‘As soon as I found out I was pregnant with Charlie, I said to my mum I hope I don’t get Hyperemesis. I hope I’m OK.
‘I had to live with my mum and dad for three, four months. I couldn’t look after them. Now I’m not pregnant I feel like a normal mum again, I have loads of energy which is lovely.’
Helen added: ‘I had medication that worked with Delilah but I was just immune with Charlie. You’re constantly sick but it makes you feel low as well, you’re so on your own.’

What is Hyperemesis Gravidarum?
Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is a pregnancy conditioned where expectant moms experience severe nausea, weight loss, vomiting and dehydration.
Mild cases of HG are able to be treated with a change in diet, rest and antacids. But more severe cases can force the expectant mother to stay in the hospital so they can receive the nourishment they need.
About 70 to 80 percent of women will experience some form of morning sickness throughout their pregnancy.
But the number of women who suffer from HG is not well known because the majority will often go unreported because they treat it at home or in an out-patient care.
The cause of HG remains unknown, but the severe nausea is believed to be due to the rise in hormone levels in the women’s body as it changes to house the growing fetus.
HG symptoms typically start during the first trimester at the four to six week mark and peak when the woman is nine to 12 weeks along.
While most women will experience relief as the enter their second trimester at 14 weeks, some will have severe nausea throughout the course of their pregnancy.
