Last month, Danielle revealed she was taking antidepressants again to help her cope with the stress of planning the wedding to Wolverhampton Wolves footballer Jamie O'Hara, 25.
She originally started taking the drugs after suffering post-natal depression following the births of her two sons, Archie, now 22 months, and Harry, now 10 months.
She told OK! magazine last month: 'When I was off them I started feeling snappy and just down in general so I do need them, especially with the stress of the wedding.'

Her hen night comes after a tough start to the year for Danielle, who had to have her new E cup implants removed in an emergency operation after they started to swell, leaving her with AA cup cleavage.
Danielle and Jamie were originally set to wed in June 2011, but put their plans on hold after Danielle fell pregnant with Harry.
The couple got engaged in Paris in December 2009 following a whirlwind eight month courtship.
