She wrote, “Little man is here! He arrived safe and sound and he’s utterly wonderful…”

“We’re all home together soaking up this lovely little bubble before Gorks has to leave for Strictly rehearsals next week.”

Gemma added, “Thank you for all the lovely well wishes.”

The mum-of-two gushed, “Our family is complete.”

Gemma and Gorka welcomed their daughter Mia, who is their first child, in the summer of 2019.

The pair met during the 2017 series of Strictly Come Dancing but were not paired together professionally. They reportedly grew close behind the scenes and quickly fell in love.

Gorka asked Gemma to marry him on Valentine’s Day in 2021.
