Gemma Atkinson is expecting a baby boy with her fiancé, Strictly star Gorka Marquez – and sweetly, her fans are concerned for her well-being.

One even messaged the star on Sunday to express their concern, and the mum-of-one quickly responded, revealing that this is a common question she's been facing since revealing her second pregnancy.

The star shared a message to her Instagram Stories that read: "Have u had your iron levels checked missus u sound a bit breathless, that can be a sign of low iron in pregnancy [ask] your midwife to run some bloods for u x".

The TV and radio presenter replied: "I've been asked this a lot. Thanks for [your] concern [heart emoji]. "My bloods are checked regularly as is my BP.

"Both before and during pregnancy (because I find it amazing how our bodies work) my results are spot-on & luckily have been for years.

"In fact, my last blood pressure check a week ago I was told 'Gosh you are as chilled as you look'…

Gemma and Gorka, who met on the set of Strictly, already share daughter Mia, who was born in 2019. Unfortunately, it was a difficult labour, with Gemma requiring an emergency C-section and haemorrhaging after delivering Mia.

"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," she previously revealed on social media.

She continued: "I woke in another room with Gorks & my family there, Mia sleeping soundly & a lovely midwife named Di who was checking my notes. The trauma was over & thanks to our NHS & incredible hospital staff we were ok".
