The star could be seen enjoying some quality time in Cornwall with her daughter in a picture shared to Instagram earlier this summer.

The mother-daughter duo could be seen standing on a sandy beach as the water lapped the shore, with Wren kissing her mother’s bump in the snap.

Helen captioned the image: ‘The bump, Wren and far too many Cornish pasty’s [sic].’
