She also admits to “always” becoming broody when she sees her friends’ kids.

Nonetheless, the singer said she had pondered whether symptoms she had been suffering could indicate she won’t be able to add to her family.

‘Daily symptoms’

According to the Mail, Emma revealed she put having a third child on hold due to the global crisis.

However, discovering changes to her body may hinder her chances of getting pregnant reportedly left her sobbing.

I was perimenopausal.

Emma added she was told she was experiencing perimenopausal symptoms, rather than enduring side effects relating to the pandemic.

What else did Emma say?

She explained: “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.

“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.”
