Actress Helen Flanagan and Celtic footballer Scott Sinclair are engaged after Scott got down on one knee in Disneyland Paris.
Sinclair, 29, took to Instagram to announce that he had popped the question to his long-term love with an image of him down on one knee in front of the iconic Cinderella Castle in Disneyland. Alongside it, he captioned the photo with “She said YES” and a ring emoji. Scott can be seen beaming as he presents a heavily-pregnant Helen with her gorgeous ring.
The couple have been dating since 2009 and the Coronation Street actress is pregnant with the couple’s second child, a little sister to their adorable three-year-old daughter Matilda.
The star revealed to OK! Magazine how the couple found out they were having another baby girl while on holiday in Dubai, and got the results in an envelope for the hotel staff to organise a reveal. Helen explained:
“They put balloons in a big, decorated box which was brought into the restaurant. We unwrapped it and, when the lid came off, pink balloons floated out! We would have been thrilled if it was a girl or a boy, I’m just lucky to be able to have a baby. I will love this baby just as much as I do Matilda.”
The model and actress also revealed that she had been thinking of marriage with Scott for some time, saying “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 to have a romantic proposal first of all!”
Helen has since posted a snap on Instagram holding her daughter Matilda and showing off her new sparkler with the caption ‘mummy and daddy’s getting married!
Congratulations to the happy couple!
