Kourtney Kardashian jokes about crying herself to sleep with Tik Tok star

Helen Flanagan stunned her fans when she revealed she hasn’t shared a bed with her fiancé Scott Sinclair for more than seven years.

However, the reason why she’s not cuddling up to her footballer beau is because she’s a big fan of co-sleeping with her kids, and the former Coronation Street star shares three children – Matilda, six, Delilah, three, and son Charlie, 13 months – with Scott.

The couple got engaged in 2018, but Helen confessed she’s been sharing a bed with her children since they were born, and prefers to sleep with them while she’s breastfeeding as it makes it easier.

“I’ve always just co slept with the kids out of easiness and just basically so I can sleep and just function in the morning,” she shared in a post on Instagram.

Helen isn’t the only celebrity who prefers co-sleeping, as here are some other famous faces who are big fans…

The Kardashians star shares three kids – Mason, Penelope and Reign – with her ex Scott Disick, and revealed she quickly became a fan of co-sleeping once she realized it was the quickest way to get her children to sleep at night.

“Getting the kids to sleep through the night in my home was different for each individual child. When I had Mason, co-sleeping just kind of happened naturally. It’s what worked for all of us to get the most sleep, so I quickly embraced it, ”she said in 2018.

The reality star said she co-slept with her kids because it’s easier



“Co-sleeping just ended up feeling like we all got more sleep,” Kourtney added.

But she admitted Reign, her youngest child, has always slept in his own bed, and just needed “a little back rub” to drift off.

The German model has co-slept with all of her four children, and after welcoming daughter Lou in 2009, she said the tot would be sleeping in the same bed as her for a year.

“At the moment, Lou needs me enormously. Not only because of breast-feeding but also because she needs to be close to her mother, ”she told German magazine Gala shortly after welcoming her daughter.

“She will sleep now for a year with us in our bedroom – just as her siblings did. It’s easier at night if she’s hungry, ”Heidi explained.

The model and actress shares daughters Ever, 14, and Dashiel, 7, and son Osian, 2 with director Paul WS Anderson, and she’s previously raved about the benefits of co-sleeping.

Back in 2015, she said she had been sleeping with both her daughters to try and compensate for working long hours on film sets.

“I feel that it’s helped us so much to stay connected as a family. Especially as my husband and I can have such tough work schedules, making films where we’re on set for at least 12 and sometimes 14 hours a day! ” she explained.

“Because we share sleep at night, our daughter naturally feels very connected to us and that in turn makes her want to please us!” Milla added.

Current NHS advice is that it’s not safe to co-sleep with your baby under the age of six months, as it increases the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
