TV presenter Helen Skelton has announced the birth of her second baby boy with rugby star husband Richie Myler

Helen Skelton has had her baby!

The 33-year-old TV presenter announced the birth of her second little boy yesterday by posting an adorable photo of her family on Instagram that she had taken from rugby star hubby Richie Myler's profile.

The super cute snap shows Helen, Richie and their 22-month-old son Ernie's hands all holding the new baby's tiny fingers.

The Rio 2016 presenter posted the photo alongside the caption: "Family of four," alongside a line of heart-eyed emojis.

Richie, 26, posted the original photo on his own page with a caption that read: "Blessed #3becomes4."

Helen then posted a photo later that day of herself wearing suitably baggy clothes and sunglasses holding little Ernie who was pushing a pram, which we're guessing had the newest addition in.

Although we don't yet know the name of the baby, we get the feeling it's going to be something equally as interesting as Ernie.

Fingers crossed for Bert, anyone?!

Congratulations to the family!

The former Blue Peter presenter announced her second pregnancy back in November in a series of messages posted on her Twitter page.

One tweet featured a picture in which her smiling son can be seen holding a board with a message that read: "Ready for my partner in crime, due Spring 2017."

Helen captioned the image: "Three getting set to become four. #newbaby #feelingblessed."

The children's presenter posted another photo or her family again with the caption: "#newbaby."

A source told The Sun on Sunday at the time: "They are excited Ernie will have a brother or sister. It's due in Spring 2017."
