Pregnancy announcement

Last December, Emily shared that she was expecting: “Hello everyone. It’s been a little while but I’m back with some news.” She captioned a post on her Instagram, showing off her new bump, “I’m delighted to share with you all that we’re having a baby!!”

We’re having a baby.

However, it seems that the pregnancy wasn’t an easiest ride, with Emily telling her 1.9 million followers: “Every day is mixed with thrill, fear, joy, hysteria, topped off with a lot of vomiting – a bit like when you’ve just stepped off of the Oblivion at Alton Towers on a hangover.”

However she finished up by saying that she was “so happy to be writing all of this to you all” and inviting her many loyal fans to “stick around to watch me enter my mum era”.

Since then, the 34-year-old has continued to keep fans updated on her pregnancy journey, with numerous snaps on social media.
