Gemma Atkinson gushed that she and Gorka Marquez are "very much in love" after her pregnancy announcement.
The former "Emmerdale" star - who started dating Gorka after she appeared on "Strictly Come Dancing" in 2017 - announced her pregnancy via Instagram on Friday (01.02.19) and later followed it up with a message about her love for Gorka.
She wrote: "Thank you all so much for your lovely messages. "We're so excited for this journey ahead and feel very lucky and very much in love. Thank you."
Gemma, 34, announced her pregnancy by sharing a picture of the couple's two dogs, Norm and Ollie, who were wearing signs around their neck which read: "Guess what ... mum's pregnant. We're going to be big brothers!"
Gemma captioned the post: "And what Amazing big brothers they will be! Myself & Gorks are beyond excited and happy and feel incredibly blessed to be meeting our new family member later this year. Baby Marquez!!! We love you loads already @gorka_marquez (sic)"
Dancer Gorka, 28, posted the same image of the pooches on his Instagram account and wrote a caption praising his gorgeous partner.
He wrote: "@glouiseatkinson Thank you for the greatest gift in life. Myself and Gem are beyond thrilled to be welcoming our new family member later this year! Baby Marquez. (sic)"
The couple confirmed their romance last year whilst they were on the "Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour".
Gemma was partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec on the BBC One ballroom contest and reached the final but behind-the-scenes she fell in love with Gorka - who had been partnered with singer Alexandra Burke.
