Gorka is a donor too! 

The celebrity couple's news comes a day after the former Hollyoaks star addressed rumours about her being pregnant with her second child after a magazine reported that baby number two was on the way.

Gemma shared a short video to her Instagram Stories responding to the news story, although she didn't name the publication.The clip started with her male radio colleagues shouting: "Congratulations! That's lovely news," in the distance.

Gemma then laughed as she addressed the camera and said: "Thanks. And thanks to the magazine for letting me know that that's what's happening."

She captioned the video: "A baby and two dogs is more than enough for now, thanks."

Gemma, who met Gorka on the set of Strictly in 2017, gave birth to their baby daughter Mia in July 2019.

In the past, the 36-year-old has left the door open to the possibility of having another child, but she is clearly in no hurry.

Speaking in a past interview to HELLO! about having another child, Gemma explained that she would "definitely love another baby," adding: "I want to enjoy Mia first, so not for a few years at least. I need to wait until she's at school at least, then I can sleep!"
