She’s been brutally honest with her fans about her pregnancy journey so far – and now Gemma Atkinson has given fans their first look at her baby bump – even speculating that she’s having a girl!
The Strictly Come Dancing star shared a video on Instagram, showing her working out in just a sports bra, and her followers were thrilled to see her belly has popped.
Beside the clip, showing Gemma doing a series of exercises, the fitness fan wrote: “Today’s workout was done at home. I did a 30 min circuit using mainly my body weight (because my baby is heavy enough) 😂
“My dumbbells were 3kg so a lot less then usual but I felt great afterwards. I’m wearing a @myzonemoves belt to make sure my heart rate stays in the ‘safe zone’ for baby and for me. I don’t want it too high. I’ve been cleared by my doctor, midwife and Evil Steve to do these exercises and before even considering exercise when pregnant YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET THE GO AHEAD FROM PROFESSIONALS.”
She also shared her most important pregnancy rule, writing: “Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Especially when you are pregnant! I’ve made that my number 1 rule! I’m just listening to my body, making note of how tired I am and making my exercise choices daily based on that.”
The 35-year-old Emmerdale star also speculated about the sex of her baby, revealing on InstaStories: “Lots of people saying my bump is ‘girl shaped’. Unsure if that’s a real thing.”
Gemma also hinted she’d be an overprotective mum if she had a daughter, sharing a picture of a scene from Aliens, where Sigourney Weaver protects a little girl.
Tellingly, she also set the exercise video to “That’s My Girl” by Fifth Harmony.
Her 889k followers were delighted with the sneak peek, with one writing: “Omg how cute is that bump though xxxxx.”
Another added: “You look fabulous 💙💜💙💜….. Your Baby Marquez Bump is so cute….. You are glowing 🎊🎊🎊🎊🎊 to you and @gorkamarquez1… Lots of love ♥.”
A third commented: “Ah Gem you look so lovely! That bump!”
Others continued to speculate on the baby’s gender, with one fan saying: “I think a girl…. seen 2 clues 😉 x.”
A second suggested: “💖😍Awwwwww @glouiseatkinson look at that baby bump girl?!😍👌perfection…” A third disagreed, writing: “That’s a baby boy bump 💙.”
Gemma and her boyfriend, Strictly dancer Gorka Marquez announced their lovely baby news at the start of this month.
