Former Hollyoaks star Gemma Atkinson has welcomed a second child with her fiance, Gorka Marquez.
The 38-year-old soap actress told fans via social media that she had given birth to a baby boy on Wednesday morning.
Her Instagram story read: “Little man is here. He arrived safe and sound and he’s utterly wonderful.”
Atkinson and Strictly Come Dancing professional Marquez also share a four-year-old daughter, Mia.
The post continued: “Mia is already the mother hen we expected her to be.
“We’re all home together soaking up this lovely little bubble before Gorks has to leave for Strictly rehearsals next week.
“Thank you for all the lovely well wishes. Our family is complete.”
The couple met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017, where Atkinson and her partner reached the finals before out to Joe McFadden.
She has appeared in a number of TV soaps and dramas throughout her career, including playing Lisa Hunter in Hollyoaks, Tamzin Bayle in Casualty and Carly Hope in Emmerdale.
She also presents a show on Hits Radio while her Spanish dancer and choreographer partner has been a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing since 2016.
During Mia’s birth, Atkinson needed an emergency C-section when her baby’s heart rate dropped suddenly.
The actress suffered a haemorrhage after the birth, losing nearly a litre of blood, and previously admitted the traumatic experience had left her not wanting another child.
However, last year, she said she finally felt ready to have a second baby after working through initial fears.
