After confirming that she would be welcoming a son, Emily later spoke out in April about misinformation surrounding her pregnancy.

“I was forced to have to announce my pregnancy WAY earlier than I wanted to, because the press found out about it and said they were going to print it. To which they then decided themselves how far gone I was, and have decided ever since the status of my pregnancy,” she wrote.

“Saying untrue things like that and stating them as fact about my own baby as you can imagine makes me SO anxious, at an already incredibly scary time. He’s not ready yet, just go easy!” she added.
