DiDonato said that she could not contain her excitement when breaking the news to Kyle and that she ‘blurted it out when he walked through the door.’
And she went on to say that her husband was no better at keeping the thrilling news to himself.
‘I would hear him on conference calls with his entire office telling people very early on and I was like, “Kyle, you’re supposed to wait and decide on that decision together,”‘ she said while laughing.
‘But I think he’s just so excited and excited to share that news with people at his job.’
DiDonato said that the couple could were not ‘actively trying’ to have a baby but she has always wanted children. Their baby girl is due on December.
On Thursday, the mom-to-be shared the news with her Instagram followers. She posted a video documenting the moment that she found out.
In the video, Emily can be seen holding up her pregnancy test, revealing the baby’s sonogram and showing off her growing baby bump in a bikini and a dress.
Also included in the video was a clip of Emily FaceTiming her mother Frances, who reacted with shock and joy after hearing that her daughter was pregnant.
Emily told People that her mother is her ‘best friend’ and that she is looking forward to cultivating that bond with her own daughter.
She said, ‘I love her to this day and consult her on everything. I think about having that bond and creating that friendship [with my daughter] and fostering that relationship is going to be really exciting.’

After her doctor told the couple that they are having a girl, Kyle hugged his wife and said, ‘Three girls in my life.’
Emily replied, ‘Three girls!’ while scratching Izzy’s head. She also revealed in the video that the first trimester was more difficult that she had thought.
The couple’s love story also seems like it was out of a movie. In January 2014, Emily was taking a trip to see a concert when her flight was changed due to bad weather. On her new flight, she was seated next to Kyle. They felt an instant connection and began dating.

The Chanel model has talked about her struggles with body acceptance on her YouTube channel but said that being pregnant has been ‘really positive’ for her.
‘I feel a whole new neutrality towards my body and food in a way,’ she told People. ‘In terms of my body, I think this is the first time in my life that I’ve had to be like my body is about to change and a lot of it is not under my control and that’s okay.
‘And also reminding myself that stressing about it and getting upset about it isn’t going to change what’s about to happen in the next nine months.’

Emily continued, ‘My body is going on a journey. It knows what it needs. I know what I need. And I just need to make sure I’m being the healthiest version of myself as much as I can when I can.’
As she awaits the birth of her daughter, DiDonato concluded that she did not want to be ‘putting that kind of [negative] energy into my body and her little body growing in there.’
Due to her busy schedule and having recently launched a skincare brand, Covey, with her best friend Christina Garcia, Emily said that the timing of her pregnancy was not exactly ideal. She said, ‘Timing-wise it wasn’t perfect, but there’s never a perfect or right time.’

He’s all loved-up after moving in with Laura Anderson in Dubai last month.
But Dane Bowers, 41, revealed his insecurities by saying he’s ‘punching above his weight’ with his Love Island star girlfriend, 32.
Speaking in an Instagram video on Wednesday, the singer told fans he’s embarking on a new fitness regime as his ‘dad bod’ has left him too self-conscious by the pool.
Silver fox: Dane Bowers, 41, told fans on Instagram on Wednesday his ‘dad bod’ left him too self conscious in the pool alongside his Love Island beauty girlfriend Laura Anderson, 32
He explained: ‘So I wanted to do a video because I’m just about to do something that I’ve been telling myself to do for months now, which is go to the gym.
‘I’m going to do quite a serious 12 week course which I’ll tell you about but I don’t know how you guys feel about going to the gym.
‘Obviously girls talk a lot about their bodies and about not being happy, or they are happy, or whatever but I feel like guys don’t really do it.
‘I’m obviously pushing past 40 now. I’ve most definitely got a dad bod and I really do not like my body, to the point where I really have to kind of push myself and take a breath to take my top off at the pool… which obviously in Dubai is hard work because there’s a lot of pools, the beaches. I don’t particularly like taking my top off.’
Big Reunion: Dane, who appeared on television show The Big Reunion, reunited with Laura after they split three years ago after she discovered he had cheated on her

Dane explained: ‘Obviously girls talk a lot about their bodies and about not being happy, or they are happy, or whatever but I feel like guys don’t really do it’
Laura split from Dane three years ago after finding out he’d cheated on her but they rekindled their romance and moved in together in the United Arab Emirates in May.
Dane went on to tell his followers that during a recent photoshoot he felt insecure alongside partner Laura, who he says ‘looks amazing, she’s got a ridiculously good body’, adding: ‘Yes, and I’ve read all the comments, I know I’m punching.’
Dane continued: ‘For me, we did a shoot in the swimming pool and I wasn’t body fully out but I felt very conscious and I’m sure there are lots of guys that feel the same.
Self preservation: Dane admitted he felt too self conscious in a recent photoshoot alongside beauty Laura during which he was required to take his top off in the pool
‘I’ve always said, “I’ve got to go to the gym, I’ve got to fix it,” because I don’t want to feel awkward taking my top off at the pool.
The former pop star said he’d regularly be posting videos to his social media page to keep him accountable, adding that he hopes to see some results soon.
After setting up home with Laura in the UAE in May, Dane revealed it was his twelfth move in four years.
Laura ended her romance with Dane, who previously dated Katie Price, 42, after discovering he was unfaithful in 2018. But sources close to the pair say they’re officially back on – and hope this time it’s for the long-haul.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Dane and Laura have been spending all their time together in Dubai – being in each other’s company again has reminded them how good things were before.
‘Laura was devastated when she found out Dane was cheating on her but years have passed and she’s now willing to give him another chance.’

And Olivia Bowen was at it again on Wednesday, as she took to Instagram where she posted a photograph of herself in a mishmash bikini.

Olivia is known for keeping it real on Instagram, and was recently hailed as ‘inspiring’ after she bravely displayed her psoriasis in a lingerie shoot.
In March, the reality starlet, who has previously spoken about dealing with the skin condition, shared snaps of herself donning pink lace lingerie along with an inspirational message.
Posing in her bathroom, Olivia wrote: ‘GROW through what you GO through & you will GLOW boo!’
Olivia re-shared one of the photos to her Instagram Stories and said the reason she speaks about her psoriasis is because she would have loved to see someone talk about it when she was struggling with it as a teenager.

It’s a hard life: The reality beauty highlighted the 25 degree heat she was enjoying
She wrote: ‘Some days I don’t wanna look at my skin, some days I don’t care, some days I love it.
‘The reality is it just doesn’t f*****g matter in comparison to what is worth our time in the world.
‘I just get on with my life & do my work & enjoy being alive & live my best! The main reason I acknowledge my psoriasis online is because I KNOW how much I would have loved to see someone in the public eye with it when I had it last at 17 years old.
‘It shouldn’t even be a thing to be honest, but I know how on bad days it can get you down. Your messages on how much it helps seeing me confident with it are really lovely.
‘Really so sweet & I’m happy that you guys can take something away from seeing someone just living with it. You can too!’
Olivia previously admitted her 10-year battle leaves her feeling ‘terribly insecure’ at times as she deals with flare-ups which can last up to four months.
Psoriasis occurs when a person’s skin replacement process takes place within days rather than the usual 21-to-28 days.
The accumulation of skin cells builds up to form raised plaques, which can be flaky, scaly and itchy.
