Taking to her Instagram stories the mother-of-two shared an update on her fitness journey since giving birth in July - and it's safe to say she is looking incredible.

"It's been a minute," penned the star. "I've been working away on myself physically since having Thiago (he's 18 weeks tomorrow). Still a little bit of ab separation but I'm doing all the rehab core work and it's down from 6cm to 2 cm."

Following the update, she took to her stories again with a video saying that her followers have worked out that he may not actually be 18 weeks old, sending the star into a spiral of confusion.

Alongside the image, Gemma penned: "Howling! I've had 22 weeks, 26 weeks, 5 months exactly and 23 weeks."

Dad Gorka Marquez even chimed in and was captured in a video with the couple's eldest child, three-year-old Mia, which ended in Gemma telling Thiago: "He [Gorka] doesn't care how old you are." "I do," Gorka replied after he explained the way he works out his little one's age. 

The conversation certainly amused Thiago who was beaming from ear to ear when Gemma panned the camera over to him.
