Gemma Atkinson reveals due date is near in loved-up tribute to Gorka Marquez

Touching words of praise from Gem for the dad-to-be

Pregnant Gemma Atkinson has paid a sweet tribute to the father of her baby - before the tot has even been born!

The 34-year-old former soap star, who is expecting her first baby with partner Gorka Marquez, gushed about what a great dad her Strictly beau will be in an adoring Instagram post earlier today (June 16).

Gemma also confirmed their little one would be on the scene in "just a few short weeks" - and enthused about how much she is looking forward to being a family of three.

Captioning a montage of loved-up snaps of the pair, Gemma wished a happy Father's Day to the 28-year-old dad-to-be, as well as "all the other dads currently awaiting for their little arrivals!"

She continued: "I can't believe in a few short weeks Baby Marquez will be here for you to do all the fun stuff we talk about."

Backing her man to be the perfect dad, Gemma added: "I already know they are in the best possible hands with you as Papa simply by the way you always treat me."

The ex Emmerdale and Hollyoaks actress also teased that the Spanish hunk will have plenty to celebrate when Father's Day rolls around again next year.

Another contributed: "You just make the most beautiful couple. Perfectly matched!"

A third added: "Boom! This wins all Father's Day posts I've watched today. Love it!"

And it seems Gemma also ensured Gorka received a card as well as glowing social media praise.

The dancing pro, currently on a tour with Strictly pals Giovanni Pernice and Aljaz Skorjanec, shared a snap of a Father's Day card 'from Bump' - presumably sent by Gem - earlier this afternoon on his Insta Stories.
