Call The Midwife's Helen George expecting second child with co-star Jack Ashton
Baby joy for Nurse Trixie.
Huge congratulations are in order for Call The Midwife star Helen George. The actress revealed this week she is expecting her second child with husband and co-star Jack Ashton.
"Baking number 2. Due in December", she wrote alongside a photo of her cradling her baby bump. The soon-to-be mum-of-two looks as happy as ever in her new Instagram post.
The actress, who plays the beloved Nurse Trixie, is also a mum to three-year-old Wren Ivy.
Just like her character Trixie, the actress is never afraid to raise awareness about pregnancy and uses her profile to put a stop to timeless debates. In an interview with Radio Times, George urged people to stop shaming women for having C-sections.
Following the birth of her baby girl in September 2017, the mum commented:
"Some people may not understand why I elected to have a C-section, but it was right for me at the time.
"It's not because I'm 'too posh to push', it's about what I think my body is capable of. I'm not good with pain, I faint when I stub my toe.
"Not that a C-section is the easy way out. It's a major operation."
The BBC star’s second child will arrive just in time for the Call The Midwife: Christmas Special this winter.
