She later shared hilarious details about her first baby scan, telling her 1.5 million followers: "People have messaged about my post of Mia with the red Teletubby, is it Po that one? They're all a bit annoying aren't they? And weird, but she loves Teletubbies. And regarding the twin thing, mums have messaged who have twins and triplets.

"Gorka has actually got twins in his immediate family, on both sides, mum and dad's side. And I have twins in my family via the granddad so when we went for the scan I kept saying to him on the drive there: 'What are we going to do if it's two? What are we going to do if we've got two babies? One's going to be tough, never mind two!'"

She added: "So yeah, we had a bit of a relief, obviously we would have dealt with it, you do, don't you? You have to. As you've all DM'd me, you make it work and parents are incredible but, yeah, could've been two little Mia's… Oh god."

Gemma is currently parenting Mia on her own whilst Gorka is in London ahead of the start of Strictly Come Dancing.
