There's no denying that the couple are relishing every precious moment with their tiny tot amid the coronavirus pandemic. Gemma, 35, and Gorka, 29, met on the set of Strictly Come Dancing back in 2017 - although, they weren't dancing partners at the time. Gemma teamed up with Aljaz Skorjanec and Gorka with singer Alexandra Burke - the pair then embarked on their relationship just a few months later during the 2018 Strictly live tour. In February 2019, they announced that Gemma was pregnant with their first child, welcoming little Mia on 4 July.

Since becoming first-time parents, the lovebirds have been keeping their fans updated with their journey into their new roles. However, Gemma has previously joked that she finds it frustrating when people compare Mia to the professional dancer. Talking on Hits Radio Breakfast, she said: "Everyone who comes to see us says, 'Oh my God she's beautiful, isn't she like her dad?' Everyone keeps saying, 'She's stunning' and then 'Isn't she like Gorka?' And I look at them and go, 'Yeah even though I carried her for nine months and all this and she looks like him!'"
