Despite already having two kids, Emer previously admitted in an interview with The Irish Examiner that this time around she was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes severe sickness and vomiting.

“For the first month-and-a-half, I was so sick. I lost nearly two stone, and the only thing I could keep down was Coca-Cola. Eventually, I went into the emergency room on the advice of a friend and was put on fluids and prescribed medication.

“I’d never had it before with my other kids so I just thought it was bad morning sickness, even though I couldn’t hold down water.

“From projectile vomiting, too, I came across degrees of incontinence — which is embarrassing, but also something we women need to talk about more.”
