Just a couple of days ago, Emily had posted a sweet photo to Twitter with her niece.
She had captioned the post: “Yesterday I hung out with my gorgeous nephew Arlo and niece Winter. We hugged, we laughed, we played, Arlo called me a fat pig.
“It was a much needed distraction from the hormonal/tired/bloated/emotional state I am currently in. Who knows, one day hopefully I’ll have my own.”
