Em and Scott have been together since the year 2000, having endured two temporary separations.
She told Who last year: ‘The first ( separation) was 2010, and then again in 2012. We have managed to keep it together though.
‘We just went through what a lot of marriages go through, you go through 10 years of hell, and if you can get out the other side with decent respect for one another, then it’s smooth sailing.’

Em revealed she was pregnant again last August, a month before announcing that she was quitting her struggling breakfast radio show on Sydney’s 2DAY FM.
Since that time, the vibrant star has been diligently documenting her pregnancy with her 164,000 Instagram followers.
Just last week, she shared a striking photo of herself in which she showed off her large baby bump while posing in a black bikini.

Em accompanied the image with a lengthy caption, explaining she was both ‘terrified and in awe’ of the physical changes she was undergoing.
The comedienne humorously wrote: ‘There have been times where I’ve caught myself feeling worried or repulsed by what’s occurred to me physically. It’s hard not to when your previously B cup breasts now nestle themselves snuggly inside a D cup, and when set free, rest atop your growing stomach like two giant, mono-nippled Jabba The Hut.’
She continued: ‘I’ve mostly been able to remind myself that there’s a human life growing inside of me. A whole new person to come into the world, created by the factory of my body… and then I just worry about that instead of the cellulite on the side of my knees.’
It wasn’t the first time she quipped about changes to her breasts, describing them in September as ‘dinner plates with fleshy almond thumbs’.
