Helen Flanagan names daughter Matilda Jessica

Helen Flanagan and Scott Sinclair have named their daughter Matilda Jessica.

The former 'Coronation Street' star and her footballer beau, 26, welcomed their first child into the world on Monday (29.06.15) and took to Instagram to announce their newborn's moniker.

The brunette beauty captioned a photograph of herself and Scott holding the little girl: "Best day of my life welcome to the world Matilda Jessica Sinclair."

She wrote alongside another topless image of the Aston Villa player cuddling Matilda: "The man I love and our world."

Helen also shared a photo of the tiny tot in a cute baby grow which read: "Apple of my mummy's eye".

The 24-year-old actress gave birth in Birmingham and was thought to have been around two weeks overdue when doctors induced labour.

A pal revealed: "Helen gave birth on Monday in Birmingham, and she is still there recovering. It is hoped that she'll be back home in a day or so.

"It is very exciting for them, and both their families.

"Helen was hoping to have the baby naturally, but the doctors decided it was best to induce. She is exhausted but doing well."

Meanwhile, Helen previously admitted she was the "happiest [she's] ever been" and her and Scott were considering marriage in the future.

She said: "We'll definitely get married at some point. Scott knows what type of ring I want - one with a huge rock on it."
