She told the magazine: "He's amazing because he believes in me.''

Gemma also revealed that they had bought a cocker spaniel called Luca, who she couldn’t help but gush about.

The star continued: "He's just a bundle of joy - the most loving, sweet-natured, silly creature. Rory and I call him our first-born son.''

As for The Duchess, a Netflix synopsis for the exciting comedy reads: "[The show follows] the powerful and problematic choices of a fashionably disruptive single mum living in London.

"Her daughter, Olive, is her greatest love so she debates a second child with her greatest enemy - Olive’s dad. Can two wrongs make another right?" 

Speaking about the new series, Rory's co-star Katherine told Forbes: "I hope viewers will take the message from this show that we’re celebrating family in whatever shape it happens to come in. 

"I love the idea that a woman in any position or situation can find love in an unconventional way and be empowered by that. I also believe a woman doesn’t need a man to be happy."
