Emma, who is the daughter of five-time Melbourne Cup winning thoroughbred horse trainer Lee Freedman, announced in May that she was expecting her second child.

‘We’re absolutely delighted and feel very lucky,’ she told The Daily Telegraph at the time.

‘We are excited for all of the chaos that comes with two small friends.’

‘Will has already shown quite the love of small babies so hopefully he is like that when he gets to meet his little sibling,’ she added.

Emma explained that she’d been able to keep her second pregnancy a secret for so long because of the coronavirus lockdown.

The new arrival will certainly bring plenty of joy for Emma, who has made no secret of the fact she wants to have a big family.

The former Triple M presenter told Daily Mail Australia at Derby Day last year that she and Charlie hoped to have ‘a couple more’ babies.

‘It’s amazing, I love being a mum. It’s a big juggle and a big balance – especially this time of year – but [Will is] a really happy little boy,’ she said. 

Emma and Charlie, who started dating in 2015, tied the knot in June 2018 at the Paddington Reservoir in Sydney.
