Gemma hasn't secretly given birth to a new child, the baby in the sweet clip is in fact Mia when she was a newborn! Gorka was seen cupping the little girl's head, and alongside the footage, Gemma wrote: "Time flies… when papa could hold her entire head in his hand..." The next slide read: "To table dancing in coffee shops," and it showed their two-year-old enthusiastically grooving on a table.

Will Gemma and Gorka have another baby?

When taking part in a Q&A on Instagram, Gemma was asked whether she was put off to have another child following Mia's "traumatic birth," to which, she replied: "Lots asking if my experience has put me off having more children. Absolutely not.

The couple are parents to two-year-old Mia

"If we're lucky enough I'd love a sibling for Mia, but when she's older now! When she can wipe her own bum maybe."

The actress had a very traumatic birth with Mia and Gemma has detailed it to her fans in the past. "I was having a haemorrhage. A big one & I lost a lot of blood," she recalled. Adding: "I don't remember much other than having around 9 doctors in the room, some injecting me, hooking me to drips, physically pulling clots out of me & one comforting Gorks who was beside himself in the corner."

The star hasn't ruled out baby number two

Both stars often give fans a glimpse into their parenting, and regularly share sweet behind-the-scenes snaps of their family life.

They first met on the set of Strictly back in 2017, started dating the following year and welcomed their daughter on 4 July 2019. The couple announced their engagement on Valentine's Day, and recently moved into a dream home in Greater Manchester.
