The mum-of-one had taken Mia to a Wizard of Oz themed playpark, and as Mia stood alongside effigies of the central characters, Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, she shared some sweet words for her young girl. "Heart, brain, courage," the loving mum wrote alongside emojis representing each word. "You definitely have all 3 already Miss Mia!"

Gorka's Strictly co-star Karen Hauer simply wrote: "Preciosa," while another wrote: "So cute."

A third left a very complimentary comment, as they said: "Bless her little [heart emoji] you and Gorks are so lucky and amazing parents to raise such an adorable little girl."

However, one fan was a little unnerved by the scarecrows that Mia looked to be enthralled by, dubbing them as "absolutely terrifying".

Gemma had some sweet words for her daughter

Although Gemma and Gorka are both talented dancers, Gorka has said that he wouldn't become his young girl's dance teacher.

Speaking to HELLO! in 2019, Gorka explained: "Don't get me wrong I would teach her, but I wouldn't be her dance teacher, I would rather take her to a good teacher.

"I'd say 'this is a good teacher and you go to this school', but I wouldn't be teaching her. Because I had partners in the past where their [family] teachers were very mean, and everything in the house wasn't family, it was about dance, so I don't want that, she's going to be my daughter, and if she does dance I'll love it."

The doting mum frequently shares photos of her daughter

Although they met on the show in 2017, Gemma was then partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec and Gorka was partnered with singer Alexandra Burke. The couple got together after the show in 2018.

The boyfriend and girlfriend achieved another first together when they were paired up for the 2019 Strictly Christmas special and danced a festive jive which aired on Christmas Day. The couple just missed out on lifting the Christmas trophy, however, as former finalist Debbie McGee was crowned the champion along with her pro-partner Kevin Clifton.
