Gemma Atkinson reveals she and Gorka Marquez will get MARRIED after welcoming first daughter Mia

Gemma Atkinson has revealed she and Gorka Marquez will get married after welcoming their first child together.

The 34 year old actress gave birth to her first daughter, Mia, with Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka, 28, earlier this month.

She has now revealed plans to marry her hunky boyfriend after officially registering Mia’s name.

Speaking to Hits Radio, Gemma said: “It was quite sad because until then apparently they officially take the mum’s name, but once registered she’s an official Marquez.

“And I’m the only one who’s not a Marquez in the family. I said to him [Gorka], ‘You do know now we need to get married otherwise I’m not part of the family’. He’s like: ‘Yeah, we have time, it’s OK’.”

Gemma’s exciting news comes after former Hollyoaks star Gemma opened up about her traumatic labour.

In a caption alongside an image of herself and Mia in hospital, she detailed the trauma her body went through trying to bring a new life into the world.

She began: “This picture was taken when Mia was 30hrs old. The weary smile on my face doesn’t quite portray how happy I was inside as 30hrs earlier, things could have gone very differently.


“Mia was a tiny baby, 4lb 10, with that in mind the midwife was concerned she wouldn’t be strong enough to open my cervix.

“My water broke on a tues & we gave her the benefit of the doubt but by the Wednesday evening despite her being in the perfect place & so low down, she still hadn’t managed it.

“The decision was made to induce me to help her along but she disliked that even more.” [sic]

She continued: “With every contraction her heart rate dropped. On the 3rd one midwife Katie who was taking care of me at the time pressed the panic alarm & within 15 mins I was rushed out, prepped & delivered Mia via an emergency C section.

“Gorka got a doctor and she took 1 look at me & again pressed the panic button. I was having a hemorrhage. A big one & I lost a lot of blood.

“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.

“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. I’m fully aware for some people it’s a different outcome & I feel incredibly lucky that me & Mia are healthy & healed.”
