Gemma Atkinson has revealed the exciting milestone her baby daughter Mia has hit – she can now crawl! The actress, who welcomed Mia with boyfriend and Strictly Come Dancing pro Gorka Marquez in 2019, took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce the happy news.

In the video, the actress could be heard saying: "Hi guys, I know everyone's doing makeup tutorials at the minute so I thought I'd show you mine.
