Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez first picture of baby boy and reveal sweet name

Gemma Atkinson has shared an adorable picture of her and Gorka Marquez’s newborn son, and revealed his sweet name.

The former Hollyoaks star, 38, and her Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer, 32, who met on the series back in 2017, shared the happy news she had given birth with an announcement on Wednesday, July 19.

They’ve now shared a first look at him with a sweet picture in his cot, and revealed his name: ‘Thiago Thomas Marquez’.

‘Our family is complete,’ Gemma wrote.

The post was flooded with congratulatory messages, with Strictly star Oti Mabuse writing: ‘Beautiful.’

Sheridan Smith added: ‘Congratulations.’

Their new arrival is a younger sibling for daughter Mia, who they welcomed together on July 4, 2019.

Gemma announced the birth of their son on Instagram, revealing that her ‘little man is here’.

‘Little man is here! He arrived safe and sound and he’s utterly wonderful. Mia is already the mother hen we expected her to be,’ she wrote.

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

‘Thank you for all the lovely well wishes. Our family is complete.’

Gemma also added a series of emojis, including a family of four, two dogs and four red hearts, while Gorka shared the exact same message on his Instagram Story.

In a second post, she thanked the medical staff who supported her during the birth.

‘And a massive massive thank you to the maternity unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital. You are all angels,’ she wrote.

‘We honestly could have asked for better care from you all. Just as you were with Mia, your care and expertise was wonderful. Thank you,’ she added, including the hashtag ‘#nhsworkers’ and three clapping emojis.

Weeks ahead of their son’s arrival, Gemma and Gorka also revealed that they had signed up to star in their very own reality TV series.

Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens will provide an unfiltered look at their lives as they prepare for their son’s arrival while also dealing with the pressures of parenthood and work.

The three-part series for W and UKTV Play will air this summer and revolve around Gemma’s pregnancy right up until labour.

Gemma and Gorka announced they were pregnant earlier this year, with a series of adorable black and white snaps, including one of Mia cuddling up to her blossoming bump and another of the Spanish dancer grinning ear to ear.

She wrote: ‘Impossible to hide my belly any longer. I’ve officially “popped.” 😂 Our baby boy will be joining our family later this year 💙.

‘We feel so incredibly blessed and Grateful to be on this journey again. Mia is absolutely thrilled! Although we may need to do some negotiating on names, as so far she’s adamant he’s going to be called Barbie.’

The pair got engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2021, after meeting on Strictly, where Gemma was partnered with Alijaz Skorjanec and Gorka with Alexandra Burke.

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this year.
