But pals of mum Helen, 35, mum-to-be Maria, 29, say they’ve both turned their lives around since starting a family.

In the past, actress Helen has confessed to battling crippling insecurities but her daughter, Matilda, 11 months, with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair, 27, has helped give the mum new confidence.

A source says: “Motherhood has had an amazing effect on Helen, which has seen her really calm down.

“Since having Matilda she’s a different person, she’s gone from being uptight and easily wound-up to really easy-going and chilled out.”

And motherhood has also had a positive effect on former TOWIE star Maria, who pals say has turned her back on her partying ways after finding love and starting a family with her BMX racer beau, Kelvin Batey.
