Gorka added: “We’ve been doing that for the last two years and haven’t booked one yet. We’re just living and we’re happy like that.”

Gemma and Gorka confirmed their romance back in 2018 after she appeared on Strictly in 2017.

Even though the pair didn’t dance together, rumours of a romance between them both emerged.

In February 2019, Gemma and Gorka announced they were expecting their first child together.

Then in July of that year, they welcomed their daughter Mia.

At the time, Gorka gushed on Instagram: “Our beautiful baby daughter arrived on Thursday 4th July and myself and Gem couldn’t be happier.

“She’s incredible and she certainly made an entrance, giving us all quite a fright at times.”

He went on to call Gemma his “asolute HERO”.

Earlier this month, Gemma opened up about having another baby with Gorka.

During an appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch, the former Emmerdale actress revealed she suffered from PTSD following the birth of Mia.

She said: “I’m at the stage where I want a sister or brother for Mia.

“The first few months of Mia’s life, I kept saying to my partner, Gorka, I’m not going through that again. I’ve now come off it and I feel I could.”
