She said: "It's been really an interesting time in the world to be pregnant right now. It’s definitely caused a lot of introspection, but I think it's been amazing to really sit with myself and really turn inward in a way I never have before and be still. That's been really nice, and I feel really grateful to have gotten to do that.

"To not just be running from one appointment to the next or one job to the next. I’ve really had to be present with myself, and that's been - some days you wanna crawl out of your skin, but other days you feel really good and really grateful."
Emma - who will be welcoming a baby boy - is currently getting her house ready for her son’s arrival, and has said she’s pleased she isn’t having a daughter, because she thinks she’d buy way too many clothes for a baby girl.
She explained: "I've been trying to not buy a ton of stuff because I love shopping. All I can say is thank goodness I'm not having a girl because the clothing situation would just be insane.”
And the 29-year-old actress also opened up on her current cravings, admitting she’s become obsessed with cupcakes during her pregnancy.
Speaking to Glamour magazine, she said: "Sprinkles cupcakes have been my obsession. I love cupcakes in general, but for some reason Sprinkles during my pregnancy, during the pandemic. Salt & Straw ice cream too. They have a Halloween flavour called The Great Candycopia, which - it's been a problem how much I've been eating it."
