Emma has the magic touch!

TV presenter Emma Willis revealed last week that she wants to one day help deliver a baby, and it sounds like she once came pretty close!

On Monday, Giovanna Fletcher posted a touching birthday tribute on Instagram to her “hilarious friend”, joking Emma may have once sent her into labour!

Beside a four-year-old picture of the pair, cuddled up together when author Giovanna was pregnant with her first son, Giovanna wrote: “Each year, on the night before Buzz’s Birthday, this picture comes up in my Timehop.

“I’m not sure if my waters had gone by this point (I did stay and eat my dinner) or if it was Emma’s touch that made Buzz decide he was ready to break free, but I was so glad Emma was by my side that night.”

The blogger added: “She’ll forever be my laidback, loyal and hilarious friend who I’m so thankful to have in my life. She is a beaut. Her outer beauty speaks for itself, but it’s the woman inside that is the true champion. Happy belated Birthday Willis. Love you! Xxx.”

The pair are both married to members of boyband McBusted, who combined Busted and McFly in 2013 to form a supergroup.

Giovanna is married to Tom Fletcher, and the pair have two children, Buzz and Buddy, two.

They recently announced a third child is on the way.

The pair have gushed about each other before.

Last October, Giovanna posted a picture of Emma with their children.

She wrote: “We used to drink hot tea and cake while having a natter… now we run around after this bunch and leave a trail of unfinished conversations behind us. Life is good (but hectic).”

The Voice presenter replied to the pic: “Gosh you are bloody wonderful.. love you Gi.. it’s very weird writing this when you’re sat opposite me on my sofa…”

Giovanna, who has a mum podcast, told The Sun about their friendship in 2016, saying: “Emma and I have always been close. She’s a great mum and role model.”

The TV host is a proud mum to three children – Isabelle, eight, Ace, six, and one-year-old Trixie – but, as she told Daily Star’s TV Life magazine, she didn’t really get to watch the process.

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.
