Emma Willis has joked she signed up for her new TV show to STOP her having more kids!
The mum of three, 42, is following her dream of working in a maternity ward for new documentary series Emma Willis: Delivery Babies.
But being around newborns has NOT made her broody!
When asked by OK! magazine if the show made her want more kids, she said: “No! Are you joking? Have you ever seen a birth? That doesn’t make you want any more.”
She quipped: “That’s why I’m doing it: so I don’t have any more!”
Emma and her husband, Busted musician Matt, are parents to Isabelle, eight, Ace, six, and one-year-old Trixie.
UKTV has ordered six episodes of Emma’s documentary, which will follow the Celebrity Big Brother host as she trains as a Maternity Care Assistant.
Emma told the magazine she’s just completed mandatory training to work as an MCA and although she can’t actually deliver babies herself, she is very involved in the process.
“You literally get your feet on the ground and you learn on the job. You’re the first port of call for the mum, really, so I will see births but I can’t actually deliver,” she said.
Emma will admit parents-to-be to the ward, take blood pressure, assist in theatre, and help out where needed in the birthing suites.
She will spend three months working on a busy maternity ward, doing four shifts a week – both day and night – alongside the hospital’s nursing staff.
“If I wasn’t doing my current job I know for a fact that I would have loved to work in a hospital,” she said.
“Blood, guts and the workings of the human body have always fascinated me. Both my parents worked in hospitals and so it’s literally in my blood.
“I can’t wait to dive right in and fully immerse myself in a busy maternity ward alongside the truly incredible midwives and nurses who work there day in day out.”
It’s certainly a dream come true for Emma, as just last month she told Daily Star’s TV Life how fascinating she finds the world of midwifery.

When asked what’s on her bucket list, she said: “I want to deliver a baby, or at least see a delivery. I think it would be incredible to witness. I missed mine because I was at the other end.
“I need my little sister to have a baby, really. I could be her birthing partner.”
