Helen is already a mum to three-year-old toddler, Wren Ivy.

The star has not yet revealed the gender of her baby.

In response, fans could not wait to congratulate the beaming star.

Sharing their well-wishes for the actress, one person wrote: “Oh lovely! Congratulations Helen.

“2 is proving an interesting juggling act for me – I’m sure you’ll handle it all in your stride x.”

“Amazing huge congrats,” another wrote.

While a third typed: “Such exciting news!”

Helen met her now-husband Jack on the BBC show, where he played Vicar Tom Hereward before he left the show after series seven.

Speaking in an interview about his departure, the actor admitted it was necessary for him and his wife Helen to stop working together to “keep them sane” as a couple.

While Helen has revealed she would like to bring back killed off characters to Call The Midwife in the style of the 1997 movie, Titanic’s last scene, where the main character, Rose (played by Kate Winslet) is reunited with her deceased boyfriend, Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio).

 The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant said she would “love” to have Barbara Hereward and Sister Evangelina return to the show in particular.

Opening up on characters she would like to see back on Call The Midwife, Helen told Radio Times: “I’d love all of them to come back. Even those who’ve died, like dear Barbara [Charlotte Ritchie] and Sister Evangelina [Pam Ferris].

“Maybe we could have a moment like at the end of Titanic where all the characters return and we walk down the steps of Nonnatus House together!”

The show follows the extraordinary lives of the nurses, midwives and nuns of Nonnatus House in East London’s Poplar.

Barbara was a nurse who had been hired to replace Cynthia Miller.

She was diagnosed with septicaemia (blood poisoning) in series seven, and despite some initial improvement in her health, died with her husband, Tom Hereward, and best friend Phyllis Crane at her side in her last moments.

Meanwhile, Sister Evangelina passed away following a second stroke in the season five finale, devastating those that knew her.

The returning cast members for the latest series include Helen (Trixie), Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Linda Bassett (Nurse Crane), Judy Parfitt (Sister Monica Joan), Fenella Woolgar (Sister Hilda), Ella Bruccoleri (Sister Frances), Leonie Elliott (Lucille), and Stephen McGann (Dr Turner).

Cliff Parisi (Fred), Annabelle Apsion (Violet), Georgie Glen (Miss Higgins), Max Macmillan (Timothy), Zephryn Taitte (Cyril) and Daniel Laurie (Reggie) are also back.
