The former Emmerdale actress accompanied the message with a string of emojis to reflect her terror.

In another clip, Gemma can be heard questioning to her dog, Ollie, on whether he was concerned she may ‘tear’ when giving birth.

Trying to wake the sleeping pooch, Gemma said: ‘Ollie, did you know that?’

After no response, she continued: ‘Did you know that I could tear in labour delivering your little sibling?’

Clearly not interested in her woes, Gemma added: ‘I might tear, are you not bothered? Are you not ar**d?’, before finally adding: ‘Cheers for the support.’

Meanwhile, Gemma recently admitted she has been taking full advantage of Easter as she confessed she has been binging on chocolate, so much so that she joked she is starting to resemble an actual Easter egg.

Cradling her bump with a huge smile on her face, Gemma said: ‘Who ate all the eggs?! First Easter where I actually look like and Easter Egg and I bloody love it!’
