Gemma and her partner Gorka welcomed little Mia on 4 July 2019 

Mia is growing up so fast, it surely won't be long before she is picking out her own clothes! The couple welcomed her on 4 July 2019, so her first birthday is less than two months away. Gemma and Gorka met when the actress and radio host took part in Strictly back in 2017, although they didn't dance together until the Christmas Special two years later. Their relationship began in 2018, during the show's live stage tour, and they announced that Gemma was pregnant with their first child in February 2019.

The 35-year-old was recently asked whether she and Gorka would be getting married and gave a typically down-to-earth answer. Gemma invited fan questions on Instagram, one of which was whether she had any plans to tie the knot with her partner. The star replied: "Nah… not anytime soon anyway. Genuinely never fancied it. We're so good as we are." We bet Mia would agree!
