Gaz Beadle reveals his wife Emma McVey is undergoing heart surgery
"Very emotional day"
Gaz Beadle has revealed that his wife Emma McVey has been rushed to hospital and is undergoing heart surgery.
The operation is to fix three holes in her heart and will take up to three months to recover.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Gaz Beadle said: "Very hard very stressful very emotional day. Crazy what life throws at you sometimes.
"Big day for our family tomorrow."
Gaz then went on to explain that Emma had waited hours to get into a ward and her biggest concern while there was about the couple's children.
“You know what shout out to all the mums, honestly Emma was literally waiting to go in at 7 am this morning..,” Gaz said.
“After we dropped her off last night, and her only worry was the kids were ok and that they had found their treasure hunt surprises which she has planned every day for them….”
Gaz continued: “Mums are built differently, nothing else matters, as long as their kids are happy.
“I will hold the fort and update you all soon as I hear from the doctors that all has gone well.
“Going to be a hard two to three-month recovery but we got this as a family… thanks again for all the messages.”
Emma has suffered from a heart defect since she was born and also suffers from an inflammatory condition called colitis.
The couple shares two children together, a five-year-old son Chester and a two-year-old daughter Primrose.
