Helen’s split reveal comes just hours after she shared a post about the stresses of motherhood, alluding to her personal issues.

It read: ‘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.’

On New Year’s Ever, the broadcaster revealed she and the Leeds Rhinos fullback had welcomed a daughter named Elsie to their family.

Sharing a photo of England national rugby league team player Richie leaving hospital with the newborn, Helen credited staff of the NHS for their incredible support and ‘legendary’ care.

In her sweet announcement, Helen revealed that Richie became confused over the term doula – a form of hired support in and after birth.

She wrote: ‘Can always count on dickie …. of all the things he’s said (there’s been a lot) “don’t worry I will be your lido…” while on route to hospital might be my fave. The man meant Doula…

‘From the mouths of men. (pic from earlier this week – just haven’t posted partly because my mam likes the family what’s apps to be ahead of insta…

‘Mainly because I am still failing to find appropriate words of thanks for our @nhsengland @nhsmillion …. legends the blooming lot of them).’

The Countryfile host later revealed her baby’s middle name is a tribute to a cousin who died in her 20s.
