Gemma Atkinson provides an update on her pregnancy
Gemma Atkinson has given birth to a baby boy and she shared the happy news in a heartwarming social media post.
The former Hollyoaks star, 38, and her Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer Gorka Marquez, 32 – who met on the series back in 2017, although they were not paired up together – made the announcement on social media on Wednesday July 19.
Their new arrival is a younger sibling for daughter Mia, who they welcomed together on July 4, 2019.
“Little man is here! He arrived safe and sound and he’s utterly wonderful. Mia is already the mother hen we expected her to be,’ she wrote in her caption.
“We’re all home together soaking up this lovely little bubble before Gorks has to leave for Strictly rehearsals next week.

The couple shared they were expecting a second baby in January with Gemma posting several adorable black and white snaps, including one of Mia cuddling up to her blossoming bump.
She said at the time: “Impossible to hide my belly any longer. I’ve officially ‘popped.’
“Our baby boy will be joining our family later this year.

“We feel so incredibly blessed and Grateful to be on this journey again. Mia is absolutely thrilled! Although we may need to do some negotiating on names, as so far she’s adamant he’s going to be called Barbie.”
The news of their son’s birth comes just weeks after it was announced Gemma and Gorka will star in their own reality TV series.
Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens will provide an unfiltered look at their lives as they prepare for their son’s arrival while also dealing with the pressures of parenthood and work.
The three-part series for W and UKTV Play will air this summer and document Gemma’s pregnancy right up until labour.
Announcing the project, Gemma said: “We’re so excited to be working with W on a project which, not only takes people into our lives behind closed doors, but also one that raises awareness of vaginal birth after Caesarean delivery, and an honest look into the journey of a second pregnancy after a previous traumatic birth.
“We get lots of questions from people who have experienced something similar so it will be a great way for viewers to receive information from professionals who we meet along the way.”
Gemma plans to raise awareness of VBAC – Vaginal Birth After Caesarean – after she required an emergency C-section during Mia’s delivery.
