The couple's Strictly pals and Gemma's fans were quick to comment on the video. One said: "At least Baby Marquez is never going to experience the shameful dad dancing."

The loved-up couple recently sparked rumours that they were engaged, after Gemma was seen enjoying a meal with her pals wearing what looked like a diamond ring on her engagement finger.

A source denied the engagement claims, saying Gemma likes to wear an "old ring" on her engagement finger, but surely wedding bells aren't far off for the pair.

The couple look happier and more loved up than ever as they await the arrival of their first child, with Gemma recently gushing about her beau on social media.

Revealing it was going to be a "soppy post", Gemma heaped praise on Gorka for "playing a huge part" in making her feel "safe and looked after".

Admitting she "felt lucky", Gemma praised the father to be for being "in her corner", despite his hectic work schedule.

She said: "From back rubs when baby is lay funny, to getting up in the night with me when I can’t sleep, helping me carry my things, reading with me all the baby blogs, coming to my appointments and encouraging me daily that everything will be ok when push comes to shove. (literally) [sic]."

She continued: "I feel so lucky to have you in my corner and I’m grateful to have you in my life Gorks. Mini Marquez is so lucky having you as Papa."

A cute Gorka replied: "I love you!!! I'm the lucky one."
