Flanagan previously said she plans this to be her final child, writing on Instagram ahead of her due date: “This is definitely my last pregnancy.

She has been engaged to Sinclair since 2018 and in February 2020 the couple postponed their wedding.

The actress, who has played Rosie Webster in Coronation Street on and off since 2000, has also appeared in I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

Last year she pledged to stop editing her Instagram photos in order to be a better role model for her daughters.

She said she had previously adjusted her pictures on social media because she was self-conscious about her body.
