Emily announced she was pregnant and was ‘over the moon’ to be becoming a mother in an update shared in December. 

Announcing the happy news she wrote on Instagram: ‘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!! 

‘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. 

‘I’ve got to know my body on such an insane level. It’s made me appreciate the one I’ve been given SO much, I’m doing my absolute best to make it a home for the little squid I’m growing. 

‘We can already sense the baby is reclined on a mattress of peanut butter and jam sandwiches in there, demanding more chocolate buttons. 

‘I’m so happy to be writing all of this to you all. You’ve always stuck by me through the years, do stick around to watch me enter my mum era. Christ. Let’s go.’

A pal told The Sun: ‘Emily is delighted by the happy news and has been pleased to tell family and close friends about her little one on the way. It’s the perfect end to her year and she feels over the moon.

They added: ‘Emily is more than ready to be a mum and it is something she has dreamed of her whole life. Her relationship with Alistair has gone from strength to strength and they’ve moved into together.

‘Family is everything to her — she comes from a big one herself and is really close to all her siblings — so she can’t wait to start one of her own. They’ve all rallied around her and delighted in the joyous occasion.’

Emily was spotted getting cosy with handsome nuclear scientist Dr Alistair Garner in London in September.

The star beamed as she walked through the streets of the UK capital with Alistair, who describes himself on LinkedIn as a Materials scientist and electron microscopist specialising in nuclear and aerospace applications.

The pair were spotted walking hand-in-hand around the city as they enjoyed the sunny day before settling down at a cafe together.

An onlooker told The Sun: ‘Emily was deep in conversation with Alistair. She had a cocktail and Alistair ordered a beer. Emily looked to be having a great time and couldn’t stop smiling. When they left they were holding hands.’  

Emily had been single since she split with her former Big Brother star and tree surgeon ex-boyfriend, Liam McGough, last year.

They sparked rumours that they were back together in July after they spent the evening together with some pals.
