A teary-eyed Helen Flanagan shared an honest post about ‘hating herself’ when she yelled at her children.

The former Coronation Street star was taking part in a Q&A on her Instagram Stories on Sunday when a fan asked how she ‘seems so calm’.

“How do you keep it together you seem so calm,” they asked the 31-year-old mother-of-three.

Helen shared a selfie of her looking exhausted with her hand covering half of her face after crying.

“I am not. We just share a lot of the highlights on social media I try and be as real as I can on here….” she said.

“Yesterday I shouted at the kids and hated myself for that I was just trying to give them a nice day…

“And today I cried because I felt overwhelmed but you just get on and all you can do is just try your best.”

The star always shares honest posts on the realities of parenting with her followers on Instagram.

Back in April, she revealed her parenting struggles and told fans she stopped breastfeeding.

She explained to her followers she has had a “challenging” few weeks.

Helen – who is mum to Matilda, six, Delilah, three, and Charlie, one, with her fiancé Scott Sinclair – told fellow mums she has made a series of decisions to make life easier.

She announced she was going to stop breastfeeding and planned on getting childcare for the first time.

The star posted: “I’ve decided to stop feeding. I’ve really enjoyed nursing Charlie but the past month I’ve just had enough.

“Today was the first day I’m trying to gradually wean him off during the day (he feeds too much).

“I love being a mum and I’m so grateful for my babies, but I’ve just felt so drained so making some changes.”

Helen continued: “Found the past weeks quite challenging with mum life. I think it’s quite good to be honest as we see such perfect images of motherhood on social media.

“I’ve never had any childcare for Charlie but I’ve decided to get some week. To help him eat more and get off the boob. It’s just different stages and they will pass.”

Earlier that same month, she revealed all three of her children came down with Scarlet fever.
