Gushing over her little boy, who she shares with her Rugby league star husband Richie Myler, she penned: ‘Our chuckling, cat chasing, cheeky, determined monkey is 2! You arrived in the most dramatic circumstances on the kitchen floor in France and you have rocked our world ever since!’
She continued: ‘Thanks for letting us share your adventure gorgeous boy x @richiemyler and I very proud you’re our team mate. family #babyboy #toddler #2yearoldbirthday.’
The two snaps the former Blue Peter presenter host uploaded showed Louis rocking a Hawaiian shirt as he played on a pedalo on beach in one and the other saw him sporting a cap and trainers as he played on a jungle gym.
In May 2017, Helen endured a dramatic labour in France after returning from a stroll with her eldest son.

After feeling the first signs of labour a panicked Helen called Richie, who was stuck in the UK, telling him he should get to the airport quickly as the baby was on the way.
‘It was all a bit frantic. We are just so relieved he is safely here,’ Helen told
As her first birth took two days, Helen expected this one to be the same but within an hour she was on the kitchen floor unable to move.
‘I’m still not really sure why the fire brigade arrived but it seems they were the closest emergency service at the time!’ she explained.

Back in the UK Richie had rung a friend who was their neighbour who called emergency services and rushed over to help.
In January, Helen appeared on Lorraine where shes shared that her adventurous lifestyle, that saw her kayaking down the Amazon and traveling to the South Pole, has changed since having children.
She told host Lorraine Kelly: ‘I’ve never done anything since having kids. You change when the kids come along.
‘So I’ve signed up to do the marathon and I am going to swim the channel with a relay team. My mum is worried but I said to my mum “I’ll be fine mum.”
‘I’m not one for the gym without an end goal, I need this challenge. I say yes before I think.
‘All my family have signed up to walk 23 miles in April in aid of prostate cancer because my uncle has prostate cancer.’
Helen began dating rugby hunk Richie back in 2011, with the couple tying the knot two years later before welcoming their first child Ernie.
The family subsequently moved to France, after Richie transferred from the Warrington Wolves to the Catalan Dragons, based in Perpignan in the Pyrénées.

However one year after the birth of her son, Helen was separated from her family when she took on a presenting role at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics.
Alongside swimmers Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster, the presenter was based at the Olympic pool, hosting the dramatic events of the swimming, diving and water polo for UK viewers.
Helen admitted how difficult the separation was going to be to The Mirror last summer, ahead of her stint in Brazil with the BBC.
She said: ‘It’s hard because it’s 20 days and I’ve never been away from him for one night. But you can’t not do the Olympics.’
