Gemma Atkinson says she can already tell that her unborn baby is going to take after dad-to-be Gorka Marquez! The actress, who is expecting her first child with the Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer this summer, revealed her baby has been moving a lot, prompting her to think he or she has inherited their dad’s dancing abilities.

"Well, we most certainly have a dancer in there #wrigglingbaby," Gemma captioned a photo showing her with one hand on her bump while the baby kicked.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Gemma wrote about her weight gain, and her plans to get back into shape after her baby's arrival. She said: "At present I'm not in what I'd consider 'my perfect shape' I've gained 11 Ibs. My bra size has increased by 2 cup sizes (Gorks is well chuffed), my cellulite has increased (thanks estrogen) and I've counted a few extra stretch my ass."

The Strictly 2017 star added that despite the changes, she "actually loves my body more than ever." She wrote: "Of course I'd be lying if I said the changes in my body weren't scary, and I did have a moan to Gorka early on about gaining weight, especially coming from a place of always being in control of my body. The bigger picture though is so much more important!"
