Since the split announcement, Helen made another emotional post, saying:

“A mama is always full of emotions, full of love, full of anxiety and worries, full of exhaustion and lack of energy, full of mum guilt and doubt, full of pride in her kids, full of pure joy.

“She feels it all, that’s the beauty of her, she carries it all, too. And yet she gets up every day and does it all over again.”
