Emma admitted earlier this month that she has entered the transition stage before the menopause – and faces a race against time to have another child.
The songstress told the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine that she delayed trying to get pregnant due to the pandemic but ‘cried her eyes out’ when she discovered it might now be too late to become a mother for a third time.
Describing the symptoms of perimenopause – the body’s natural transition towards the menopause – she said: ‘I started to feel unbalanced and anxious.
‘At first I put it down to the pandemic. But then the anxiety became more regular, until it was daily.

She told Netmums’ Sweat, Snot & Tears podcast: ‘My eldest said, “You need to go in there and have sex and have a child!”‘
‘I was also lethargic. Something wasn’t right. I looked up the symptoms and saw I had quite a few.
‘So I spoke to someone on Zoom who came to the same conclusion. I was perimenopausal.
‘I thought, is this the end? It’s been a very weird time. I’m a very mumsy person – when I see my friends’ babies, I always become broody. But now I thought, OK, this is it.’
She is now on a low dose of hormone replacement therapy and is undecided about having a third baby.
