Coronation Street Star Helen Flanagan is Engaged to Scott Sinclair
Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan is engaged to
her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair.
Celtic FC player Scott shared a photo of him popping the
question to the heavily-pregnant soap star at Disneyland Paris on Instagram.
He captioned the picture of a delighted-looking Helen in
front of the park’s famous Sleeping Beauty Castle with, “She said YES.”
Helen took to Instagram later to finally reveal the ring to her fans.
She shared a photo of her holding their three-year-old daughter Matilda and flashing the sparkler to the camera.
"Mummy and Daddy are getting married," she wrote alongside it, with heart and smiley face emojis.
Scott, 29, and Helen, 27, have been together since 2009. In December, Helen announced that she was pregnant with
their second child, another daughter.
In April, she revealed she had been gently guiding Scott
towards a proposal.
She told OK! magazine: "I've pointed Scott in the right direction for an engagement ring.
"We've been together for nearly nine years and we'll soon have two kids, so it's about time.
"But I want a romantic proposal, first of all!"
And she definitely got one in front of Disneyland's famous fairytale castle. Perhaps Scott has been doing his homework, because Disneyland Paris has been revealed as the world's most popular place to propose!

Her bump was visible in the Instagram snap, with Helen
dressed in a floaty black dress and Scott making the most of the warm weather
in shorts and t-shirt.
Helen made her name playing Rosie Webster in the ITV soap for over 12 years, returning in 2017 and even filming up until she was eight months' pregnant with Matilda.
She's set to exit the soap next week as she begins maternity leave but we don't think a newborn and a toddler will leave her with much time for wedding planning.
Congratulations Helen and Scott! If you ever need help wedding planning (or a babysitter), you know where to come!
