Gemma's heartwarming update comes after the radio presenter opened up about family life. In an exclusive chat with HELLO!, Gemma revealed how Mia supports her dad during his time on Strictly Come Dancing.


Gemma and Gorka welcomed Mia in 2019

"Mia loves seeing her dad on telly. She does miss him, but we're lucky though in this day and age that we've got FaceTime and Zoom, so he calls every day, every hour of every day," Gemma divulged.

She continued: "She loves seeing him on telly and she will definitely be a little dancer herself I think; the number of times we've had to re-watch the dances, I would say even I know the routines by now actually!"


The loved-up couple are planning their nuptials

Aside from dad Gorka and Helen Skelton, Gemma revealed how little Mia jumps for joy when she watches Will Mellor. She added: "Mia absolutely loves them, although she does like Will Mellor as well, she's got a little crush on Will Mellor."

Gemma and Gorka met on the set of Strictly back in 2017 when Gemma danced her way to the final with her professional partner, Aljaz Skorjanec.

She and Gorka announced their relationship in early 2018 and welcomed daughter Mia, in July 2019. And in 2021, Gorka popped the question with a beautiful diamond engagement ring on Valentine's Day.
