She’s busy hosting Celebrity Big Brother, is due to present The Voice later this year and has two young children to care for without the help of a nanny.
But as she prepares to welcome her third child with husband Matt, Emma Willis insists she won’t be taking official maternity leave.
The former model and popular TV presenter, who already has two children, daughter Isabelle, six, and son Ace, four, with Matt, is convinced her third child will arrive just as The Voice finishes and before Big Brother kicks off in June, giving her a few months to bond with baby.
But Emma is taking a laidback approach to welcoming her third child, adding: ‘We’re just going to crack on with it to be honest. I really can’t wait.’
In an interview with Cosmopolitan last year she revealed how she never expected to start a family with Busted rocker Matt when they first met. The presenter said: ‘I reckon the baby will come after The Voice ends and before Big Brother starts, so that should be OK. Matt will be on tour [with Busted], so it’s going to be busy. My parents are hopefully going to move in to help.’
It’s little surprise that the 39-year-old wants her parents to help out; she doesn’t have a nanny and juggles childcare between her family members when the children aren’t at school.
She said: ‘I met Matt when he was in Busted. I was working at MTV and I’d see him wearing baggy jeans, waddling around like a duck so they didn’t fall down.
‘He used to wear makeup and have weird hairstyles. But I remember thinking underneath all that was a really cute guy…
‘Nine years on, that fun has turned into a marriage and two kids, which is amazing because I never expected it for a second, and I don’t think he did.’
Emma has been winning over fans during her stint on this season’s Celebrity Big Brother.
Winston McKenzie was the first housemate to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house on Friday night and host Emma didn’t let the London Mayor hopeful leave without a grilling, as she questioned him on his controversial views in a fiery eviction interview.
Twitter was full of praise for the TV star, declaring her ‘an absolute legend’ for challenging Winston, while Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark also didn’t let the housemate get off lightly in his interview, leading other viewers to question the tough style of the exit shows.
Emma pressed Winston on his claims that gay adoption is a form of ‘child abuse’.
Emma was widely praised on social media for her questioning of Winston with one viewer praising the host for ‘keeping her cool’, while another tweeted: ‘WOW you absolute legend! Tackled homophobia AND over sexualisation of the female body!!! Well done bravo.’
Another fan added: ‘Go on @EmmaWillis, she should be interviewing all politicians getting proper answers through all the awful spiel,’ after the host attempted to get Winston to answer her direct questions.
