Gemma Atkinson: Gorka Marquezs girlfriend drops surprise baby news ‘Will benefit Mia’

Gemma Atkinson, 35, welcomed one-year-old Mia with Strictly Come Dancing star and boyfriend Gorka Marquez, 30, in 2019. The former Hollyoaks actress admitted she doesn’t plan to leave it “too long” before the couple decide to give their daughter a sibling.

The radio DJ confessed that the couple is not quite done with having children, as Gemma admitted she would “love to have another baby”.

When discussing if the couple had plans to add a second child into the mix, the TV personality revealed that is certainly on their agenda.

“We would love another baby because I’d love to give Mia a sibling,” Gemma explained.

“I don’t want to leave it too long so they’ve nothing in common when it comes to playing, but I want it to be long enough so I can say to Mia, ‘Give me two minutes while I do this,’ and she’ll understand.”

The mum-of-one commented that despite her traumatic labour with Mia she would still consider having another child.

Gemma had a haemorrhage after an emergency C-section and required a team of doctors to save her life.

She said: “It’s weird. If I fell pregnant in a few years and the doctor said to me, ‘It’s going to be exactly the same thing that happened to you last time.’

“I’d think it was fine because I got through it.”

Gemma added to The Sun: “Because I know having a sibling, a little buddy, is going to benefit Mia, I’d do it all again tomorrow.”

The small-screen star also admitted that she was not very maternal until she decided to have a baby with Gorka.

The couple, who met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017, embarked on a romance following the show.

The radio personality revealed she had no desire to have a baby despite pressure from “loads of people” insisting her body clock was ticking.
