GEMMA ATKINSON took to Instagram to reveal her pregnancy hack as she continued to share her journey to becoming a first-time mother with her fans, having previously joked her boyfriend Gorka Marquez shouldn’t come home.
The 34-year-old actress and fitness fanatic unveiled her top tip for pregnant women on her Instagram story today, uploading a clip which showed her rubbing oil over her hands. “Bio-Oil. My new best friend,” she told her 886,000 followers. Bio-Oil advertises one of its uses as helping to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, with advice to apply during pregnancy to areas which are prone to stretch marks. Gemma Atkinson is expecting her first child with boyfriend Gorka Marquez, 28, having confirmed the news on social media at the beginning of the month.
“After only four hrs sleep it’s a Krang day so @gorka_marquez you know the drill, don’t come home without pizza or Doritos dude,”(sic) she joked.
Gorka clearly received her lighthearted warning, replying with a string of laughing emojis.
Gemma first met the hunky Spanish dancer when she took part in Strictly Come Dancing in 2018.
Although they were not partnered with each other, the pair hit it off and were soon denying romance rumours.
Just months after the series came to an end and they had toured the country with the Strictly live tour, they confirmed their relationship with a sweet Valentine’s Day post.
The couple have been going from strength to strength ever since and revealed they are set to welcome their first child earlier this month.
Gemma confirmed her pregnancy with an adorable picture of her dogs Norman and Ollie, both with signs around their necks.
“Guess what… Mum’s pregnant!” the first read, while the second added: “We’re going to be big brothers!”
“Myself and Gorks are beyond excited and happy and feel incredibly blessed to be meeting our new family member later this year,” she told fans.
“Baby Marquez! We love you loads already.”
