This Morning star Emma Kenny has welcomed a baby daughter after struggling to conceive for a decade.
The ITV show’s agony aunt and therapist, 50, announced the joyous news on Instagram and opened up about the miscarriages she had suffered over the last ten years.
Emma, who kept her pregnancy secret also revealed she had named her new tot Etta-Blue as she shared a slew of snaps of her baby girl and husband Pete Skywalker on the social media site.
She wrote: ‘I’ve waited 10 years to finally hold you in my arms. With every miscarriage, I tried to learn to be grateful and accepting of what I had. I tried to dampen my desire to be a mother to another child, to find peace in my natural infertility and yet it felt so unnatural all in the same moment.
‘I have spent the last 9 months hiding my pregnancy, travelling the country with my theatre show, filming my YouTube crime content, and working on as many projects as possible in a bid to distract myself from the growing hope and possibility that this time you may just become a reality, and that this time things will end in the sweetness of joy, instead of the agony of loss.
The TV star continued: ‘For the past 38 weeks you have grown quietly, you have allowed me a symptomless and easy pregnancy, and whilst your arrival was by far the most dramatic, I feel a blindsiding giddy glee knowing you finally decided to announce your presence in a way that none of us could ignore.’
Emma went on to heap praise on little Etta-Blue, saying her ‘beauty was breathtaking, company perfect, presence utterly profound.’
She continued: ‘Whilst I grieve the years I wish we could have had together, I know that you are meant to be mine right now, and not a minute sooner. Etta-Blue, you have healed more than you’ll ever know, and reminded me of the wonder of being, even in the face of loss and suffering.
‘I cannot wait to share your adventures. All my love, all my heart, all my hope…..mummy xxxx (Etta-Blue born 12.50am 30/07/2023).’
Emma signed off her post with the following quote from Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib: ‘Love knows no difference between life and death. The one who gives you a reason to live is also the one who takes your breath away.’
The media personality was flooded with messages of congratulations from well-wishers, including S Club’s Jo O’Meara who wrote: ‘How beautiful! Congratulations Emma ❤️’.
This Morning’s Josie Gibson penned: ‘Omg!!!! Awwwww Emma I’m so made up for you.’
Radio presenter Lucy Horobin shared: ‘I am beyond thrilled for you, Pete and the boys! This is such wonderful, magical news! Congratulations to you all, she’s beautiful.’
Emma is also mum to sons Tyde, 16, and Evan, 14, who she shares with her ex-husband, Andy.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
