In the past, the 36-year-old has left the door open to the possibility of having another child, but she is clearly in no hurry.

In a previous interview with HELLO!, the blonde beauty revealed that the ideal time for her to give Mia a sibling would be when her daughter has started school.

Saying that she would "definitely love another baby," Gemma went on: "I want to enjoy Mia first, so not for a few years at least. "I need to wait until she's at school at least, then I can sleep!"

Gemma also reflected on why she likes the idea of a sibling for her little girl.

The star revealed: "I grew up with a sister, Gorka grew up with a brother, so I think it's nice to have someone to lean on and to share experiences with, to make memories with."

She continued: "Your siblings, they say they're the best link to your past and the best link to your future, because it's your buddy, so I'd love her to have that same bond with someone."
