“I was so pregnant and I think that really helped because in general, I care deeply, pathetically what people think about me. I just chose the worst possible career in every way for that personality trait. The idea of people not liking me and thinking I’m difficult, all those things, is just dreadful to me,” she confessed.

“But luckily, when you’re carting around a massive baby and you’re about to give birth, you don’t have the time to be anxious. I was like a literal ticking time bomb, which I think gave me this weird power for myself,” she went on to say.

Emerald just got some amazing news that caused her to tweet “OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDD” – and she’s already part of history! Find out why.
