The star, who shares children Ernie, seven, Louis, five, and year-old Elsie with her rugby player ex Richie Myler, 32, who she split from last year, snapped a sweet selfie with her brood as they married then they bundled in a playful moment at home.

She captioned the post, which she shared with her 456,000 followers on Instagram: “Always a heap on it. Usually ends in tears. #grateful #weekends #squad’.

The black and white snaps show the children, in order of age, sitting on Helen’s back as she lay on the floor while little Elsie poked her head over her older brothers.

Elsewhere on Helen’s social media posts, the TV presenter captured a story of Elsie in a front-facing baby carrier as the pair waited for Ernie and Louis to finish their Saturday morning rugby game.

Countryfile host Helen, who is in the middle of rehearsals for the Strictly live tour, captioned the moment with a laughing emoji: “Destined for a life that waits for big brothers.”

She also revealed her 4am wake up call with her only daughter as they played a game of teddy tea parties.

Helen’s posts came not long after her estranged ex-husband Richie Myler seemingly deleted his Instagram page after making his profile private following “abusive messages”.

The rugby player ended his eight-year marriage to Helen in April 2022 and moved on with Stephanie Thirkill, who is now pregnant with their first child.

And the athlete has reportedly quit the social media platform for good after going private to weed out those who are “here to maliciously share my photos or stories of me and my life.”

Writing about his decision to go private initially in October, Richie wrote to his followers on Instagram: “I have decided to keep my profile private from now on.

“If you are here to maliciously share my photos or stories of me and my life with other people or waste your time sending me offensive messages, please just unfollow me.

“I will start removing people from my account one by one. So if you’re a true rugby fan and I accidentally remove you, I apologize in advance and will accept you again! Thanks Richie.’
