Helen Skelton glows as she displays her growing baby bump at charity ball

Baby number two is on the way...

Helen Skelton was glowing on the red carpet for a charity fundraising party on Wednesday night. The TV host – who won us all over with her Gold medal calibre presenting skills at the 2016 Rio Olympics – looked like a winner as she showed her growing baby bump at the Sparks Winter Ball.

Helen wore a dark peach coloured velvet dress to the event at the Camden Roundhouse in London.

The 33-year-old announced last month that she is expecting her second child with an incredibly cute Twitter post.

The star – along with husband Richie Myler and their 17-month old son Ernie – posed with a chalk board with a sign (held by Ernie) reading: "ready for my partner in crime, due Spring 2017."

And it looks like her blossoming baby bump is developing nicely as her soft evening ballgown draped down her body.

Sharing a snap of herself on Instagram, the star wrote: "With bump ever present felt very humbled to be with @sparkscharity this eve."

The Sparks charity raises money to fund life-saving research into conditions affecting pregnant women, children, and babies – which is all a very good cause.

"Huge amount raised for research into conditions that affect children," Helen added on her photo.

Helen looked like she was in her element when she ran into Olympian – and mum-of-three – Sally Gunnell, 50, at the star studded event.

"Lovely eve with the hurdling legend that is @sallygunnell," she wrote as she uploaded a selfie of them both to Instagram.

And it sounds like the entire night was a huge success.

Sally – also a fan of the Instagram – uploaded a photo of the pair of them and revealed how much had been raised by the night of celebrations.

"Great night with @helenskelton [Sparks charity] raised well over 200K," she wrote.

Helen and her growing family are said to be very expected to welcome a fourth mouth to feed at the family table.

"They are excited Ernie will have a brother or sister" a source told The Sun on Sunday when the star announced her happy news at the end of November.

It doesn’t look like the star is slowing down, however, as she also uploaded a photo of herself hard at work recording Countryfile one day after revealing she was expecting her second child.

"Lovely time in Brecon Beacons on this evenings programme," she wrote, sharing a photo of herself filming in a murky river while wearing fisherman’s waders.

Back in August, Helen proudly revealed her young son takes after her rather than his father.

Uploading a photo to Instagram of her son sitting among her shoe collection, Helen wrote: "Daddy keeps trying to give him a rugby ball. He prefers my shoes! That’s my boy."

With a second baby on the way, Helen should probably buy herself some more shoes.

Just so there will be enough for her children to share, obviously…
