HELEN Flanagan apologized to her children as she shared a post tonight about how she was “not the mother she wanted to be”.
Actress Helen, 33, is the proud mother of Matilda, eight, Delilah, five, and Charlie, two, who she shares with her former footballer Scott Sinclair, 34.
But in her Instagram story she again shared an emotional post from the pregnancy and maternity app Peanut.
It read: “I agree to apologize to my children because some days I am not the mother I want to be.”
“Some days I am touched and overwhelmed. I’m far from perfect and I want my kids to know that’s okay.”
“You can apologize and start over. We all have our moments, but we have these.”
The former Coronation Street star is frequently subjected to mum-shaming from online commenters over her revealing clothing choices.
Earlier this month, her steamy bedroom photos came under fire.
The TV personality stripped down to a sexy lingerie set for a series of steamy shots.
The flirtatious star wrote: “Let’s cuddle and watch Harry Potter.”
However, not everyone was happy with the saucy content, with one writing: “Disgusting with three small children, must be desperate.”
Another said: “Helen you don’t have to show off to look beautiful, you really don’t.”
A third asked: “For what purpose are you posting these provocative photos?”
However, these people were in the minority, and many were overwhelmed by the glamorous photos.
“Oh my god… you look amazing Helen,” one person wrote.
Another said: “What a sexy woman and a very sexy body.”
A third posted: “Honestly you are so amazing, it just gets better with age.”
