She and her husband Jamie, 32, who live in Poole, Dorset, ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ Harlow after a year of trying. She said:” We had actually decided to take a break from trying after a year and spend the summer drinking and having fun. It was just after that I found out I was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ the first time.” After giving birth to Harlow, the couple assumed it would take a while for Emma to get ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ again, particularly after ᴅᴏᴄᴛᴏʀs had explained the ᴘᴏᴛᴇɴᴛɪᴀʟ ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇᴘᴛɪᴏɴ ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs. But ʟɪᴛᴇʀᴀʟʟʏ the first time we had sᴇx after I gave birth, I was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ again. ᴅᴏᴄᴛᴏʀs that I had a very sʟɪᴍ ᴄʜᴀɴᴄᴇ ᴏғ ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠɪɴɢ ɴᴀᴛᴜʀᴀʟʟʏ. It was something that came up after ᴀ sᴍᴇᴀʀ ᴛᴇsᴛ, they said the way my ᴄᴇʀᴠɪx ᴀɴᴅ ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs ᴀʀᴇ ᴀʟɪɢɴᴇᴅ made it very ᴜɴʟɪᴋᴇʟʏ. At the time, I took it in my stride and decided to focus on my career, but when I met my husband we decided we wanted to try.”
Now the couple parents of three, they currently don’t have any plans to have any more children. Emma explains :”It’s really manic having three kids under two. It’s amazing, but it’s hard work. We’re very blessed to have three healthy children, and I feel so lucky and grateful.”
