The star originally revealed the pregnancy in an Instagram post, showing a black and white picture of her growing baby bump.

"Hello everyone, it's been a little while but I'm back with some news. I'm delighted to share with you all that we're having a baby!!" Emily wrote.

"I've never been so happy and utterly terrified at the same time. Please go easy on me. 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.

She added: "I'm so happy to be writing this to you all. You've always stuck by me through the years, so stick around to watch me enter my mum era. Christ. Let's go."
