GEMMA Collins cried tonight at the fear that if she had a baby she would hurt herself again.
The reality TV star became emotional when she talked about her desire to have children in the Channel 4 documentary Gemma Collins: Self-Harm & Me.
Gemma said with tears in her eyes: “Because I want to have a family and stuff now, I think I have only one part …
“You hear people have depression after birth, I don’t want it to come back.”
Viewers openly praised the two stars in the RAW movie for their mental health.
One commented on Twitter: “You’re the inspiration I didn’t need !!”
Another wrote: “Just looking at #gemmacollins is an amazing woman. So strong and brave enough to talk about #SelfHarmAndMe.
“She should be very proud. Go girl – there’s a sweet life ahead of you xxx”
A third shared: “Brave and educational account of his journey. People need to hear why.”
Gemma said she was concerned that her fight with depression would make her an “unfit” mother.
You are not alone
In the UK, one suicide kills every 90 minutes.
It does not discriminate, it touches the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It is the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car accidents.
And men are three times more likely to take their own lives than women.
Yet it is seldom talked about, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly commotion until we all stop and take notice.
That’s why The Sun launched the UR Not Alone campaign.

Gemma said: “I always stopped having children because I was afraid I would start harming myself again and not become a fit mother.

“Assuring professionals that this will not be a complete green light.”
And the fourth said: “What a wonderful way to screw people over. Gemma. I think you are wonderful and it shows that there is help. Never tolerate silence. Embarrassed by mental illness.” It doesn’t matter. “
