Gemma Atkinson shows off her kids’ new rooms
Taking to Instagram, pregnant actress Gemma Atkinson indulged her followers with the touching, yet awkward story of being surprised by her friends with a baby shower over the weekend.
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant is expecting a baby boy with her professional dancing star fiancé Gorka Marquez this summer.
In the clip, Gemma said she’d rocked up in “scruffy leggings, a T-shirt and a body warmer full of poo bags”.
Revealing the story behind her bizarre attire, the star told fans: “I thought I’d nip up to the sanctuary and see some dogs,” she said. Fortunately, Gemma got over the mishap, as she added: “It’s the memories that count, isn’t it?”
Explaining the whole story, Gemma said: “Well, I’m still in shock from that surprise baby shower,” she said into the camera. “Crikey my mascara’s ran,” she said. “I thought I was going for a meeting.”
Sharing a collection of treasured photos from the party in her honour, the doting mum of three-year-old Mia wrote: “Wow! What an afternoon. My agent told me today I had a meeting with Bleakholt to sort our next open day.
“I arrived to a surprise baby shower hosted by Team Gemma. The incredible ladies I trekked with and camped with for a week on the @coppafeelpeople cancer charity challenge. To say I was shocked is an understatement.”
She continued: “Since day one i knew each of these women were special. Each of their own individual fights and/ or connections to that s****y disease blows my mind. They are the most mentally strong group I’ve ever been around. As well as kind, funny and a tad crazy which I love.

“They thought of everything. We’re already planning our next hike up in the Lake District! I’ll always be thankful I said yes to that trek as it’s brought me life long friends.
“Thank you ladies, and thank you Duncan and Ian who also came especially! Their first ever baby shower. They were our camp leaders on the trek and we’ve made them part of Team Gemma ever since weather they like it or not.
