Gaz Beadle's fiancée Emma McVey has revealed she has been diagnosed with three large holes in her heart.
The 28 year old will undergo open heart surgery to fix the defect, admitting that she is suffering from anxiety as uncertainty grows around her health.
Mum-of-two Emma took to Instagram to share a photo of herself cuddling up to her son Chester and daughter Primrose.
She wrote to her 899,000 followers: "Long story short, we've finally found out I have three large holes in my heart and damaged tissue which is causing my blood to pass through the wrong direction, the right side of my heart is now enlarged and weak, along with high blood pressure in my lungs."
"This has all got a lot worse as they should of been closed when I was a child, unfortunately no one checked my heart even when I had seizures and diagnosed with epilepsy or fainted like it was a hobby.
"I definitely shouldn't of carried babies whilst they were there. They are baffled how I actually made it through birth with Primrose and if it wasn’t a cesarean it could of been a very different story.
"Now I’m waiting for open heart surgery as the holes just can’t be closed with device closure."
She continued: "I've been a lot quieter, sometimes snappy and very anxious.
"But this is the reason why, because everyday I worry about my babies, and randomly cry thinking what if I go in and they don't see them again?!
"Especially with everything going on at the moment. Morbid and crazy I know, but it just goes to show you have no idea what people are actually going through and social media really does not show you even half of someone’s life."
Emma's Geordie Shore star fiancé Gaz was amongst the first to comment on the brave post, writing: "U will power threw it as u always do…
"You are the strongest person I know… me and the kids will be by your side the whole time…
"I can't guarantee the house will be in 1 piece when u get out of hospital but I'll try."
Love Island winner Amber Davies commented: "Oh Emma I'm sending you and the family so much love."
Make-up artist Stephanie Lange added: "Beautiful mama sending you so much love.
"You will get through this and hopefully be feeling loads better!"
