Gemma Atkinson jokes that she "looks like" an Easter egg

Pregnant actress shares shot of her blossoming baby bump

Pregnant Gemma Atkinson has told her Instagram followers that she "looks like an Easter egg".

The actress, who is expecting her first baby with Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez, wore a tight black dress as she posed for a mirror selfie.

Smiling in the picture, Gemma said: "Who ate all the eggs?! First Easter where I actually look like an Easter egg [crying with laughter emoji]."

The star added: "And I bloody love it! [red heart emoji]."

Gemma and Gorka met on the BBC One dance show back in 2017 and romance blossomed. They moved in together at the end of last year and, since then, the actress has been keeping her followers up to date with her pregnancy via social media.

Working out throughout her pregnancy, Gemma recently posted a shot of herself devouring a large pizza, telling followers she wanted to share what she gets up to on "days when I'm NOT doing my training and NOT having my green juice and NOT doing my meditating".

Explaining that she "does have those days as well", Gemma revealed" "The last thing I want is for any woman not to feel like they are doing ok."

The 34-year-old star, who dotes on her two dogs Norman and Olly, says after posting videos of herself training during pregnancy, she's received lots of messages from pregnant women saying "I wish I had the energy" or "I look massive" or "all I want to do is eat and sleep".

Former Hollyoaks and Emmerdale star Gemma, who has been working throughout her pregnancy, revealed: "Y'day my day started at 4am and finished at 8pm. I was so exhausted I felt sick."

She continued: "Today I didn't shower, I came home from work, I put my trackies on, I lay with the dogs and for my tea I've ordered this large pizza just for me!

She added: "I'm basically a sloth. Some days I feel like that and that's because I'm growing a human."

The soon-to-be mum is also well aware of how difficult parenthood can be after watching her sister raise three children.

Gemma said: "I'm fully aware of how hard it can be. That doesn't mean I'm not entitled to a lazy day now and then before my baby arrives."

She concluded: "I'm happy and healthy and my baby is the same, that's all that matters."

Gemma recently said that living with boyfriend Gorka was like "living with your best mate".
