Helen Skelton is planning to have her second child in France
The Countryfile favourite, who lives across the Channel with her husband and Catalans Dragons player Richie Myler, is expecting her new arrival to be born on the continent.
Speaking to Radio Times, the 33-year-old opened up about her family life as well as her relationship with her Irish setter/dachshund cross Barney.
Following her move to France, her beloved pet now lives with her parents on their dairy farm in Cumbria. Helen commented: "I’ve no idea how long that will be for, but our new baby, due in April, will definitely be born in France.
"Living in France is a good opportunity while [son] Ernie is little, but it seemed best for Barney to live for now with my mum and dad."

Helen continued: "With my work pattern I’m usually in France for a month or so and then I spend a week over here, but it varies.
"The first thing I do is check in with Barney and give him loads of attention and he’s happy as Larry. He doesn’t say you look tired or ask what you’ve brought him. He just makes you feel good."
Helen went on: "My mum and dad say that for two days after I leave, he shuffles round the house looking for me, bless him. Back in France, Richie and I say every day how much we miss him."

The beauty admitted having a dog was "very humbling" and helped her with work stress when she was living in the capital.
Helen first got Barney after her boss at Blue Peter asked if she'd be happy to have one, on landing a presenting job on the BBC show back in 2008.
The star revealed how her pooch went everywhere with her and helped her get talking to strangers without it being "weird".
Helen announced her pregnancy back in November, posting a photo of her son with a message board reading: "Ready for my partner in crime."
The full interview can be seen in the latest issue of Radio Times, which is out now.
