Just under a week after giving birth, Gemma Atkinson has shared a baby update with her social media followers, telling them shes “slowly getting to grips with motherhood”.
The new mum, 34, and Strictly Come Dancing pro Gorka Marquez, 28, welcomed their baby girl last Thursday.
Writing on her Instagram stories last night, the actress said shes so excited for the journey ahead.
“Thank you for all your lovely messages. Our daughter is so wonderful,” she wrote. “Im slowly getting to grips with motherhood, learning loads and Im loving being in this little cocoon with her.
“I feel extremely lucky to be on this journey with mine and Gorks little human.”
In a second post, Gemma also joked that her boobs are now enormous.
She wrote, “P.S. Didnt think my cheeks could get any bigger… I was wrong. She def aint going hungry!”
It comes after the actress heaped praise on the midwives who helped deliver her daughter last week.
Gemma shared, “Personal thank you to the midwives at Royal Bolton Hospital.
“Genuinely the warmest, most caring team. Every ward I was on myself and my family felt safe and cared for. You are angels. #NHS.”
The actress, who announced she was pregnant on February 1, shared the happy news that shed become a mum for the first time over the weekend.
