Gaz Beadle ’s fiancée Emma McVey has revealed that she has been diagnosed with three holes in her heart.
The 28-year old mum-of-two will now need to undergo heart surgery in a bid to rectify the major defect.
Emma, who has been with Geordie Shore ’s Gaz since 2016, revealed that her life-changing diagnosis has left her riddled with anxiety.
The brunette beauty announced her diagnosis on Instagram to her 900,000 followers, admitting that her heart problems should have been fixed when she was a child.
Alongside a sweet snap of Emma kissing and cuddling her two kids, Chester and Primrose, the proud mum penned: “So many of you have asked since my stories, and so many of you have given me amazing advice.
"It’s taken me a while to actually acknowledge what’s going on which is probably why it’s only just recently started getting to me.

“I’ve been drained and exhausted but trying to keep everything normal too.”
Emma went on to explain her diagnosis when she wrote: “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 have 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 have carried babies whilst they were there.”

The stunning star revealed that doctors are ‘baffled’ that she was able to give birth to her daughter, Primrose with the condition.
Emma explained: “They are baffled how I actually made it through birth with Primrose and if it wasn’t a cesarean it could have been a very different story.
“Now I’m waiting for open-heart surgery as the holes just can’t be closed with device closure.

“I’ve been a lot quieter, sometimes snappy, and very anxious. But this is the reason why, because every day 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.”
