The former Hollyoaks actress, 34, and her Strictly star partner, 28, shared the first image of the until July 16 – 13 days after her arrival on July 4 – but not before the photo was sold to and distributed through a desk.
The move will undoubtedly trigger shock fans, as the first snap came a week after Gemma went to Instagram to hit back on fans' suggestion that they didn't hide images of the baby because they had signed a lucrative deal.
Gemma shared that first photo with her 1.1 million Instagram follower night, in what was considered the first glimpse of baby Mia and her name announcement.
The person who takes a photo has the copyright on this image, unless agreed otherwise, whereby Gemma and Gorka sell the image to an agency.
These agreements revolve around copyright, which protects original works of authorship, such as photo, and means that the duo will now benefit from the image.
Gemma charges up to £ 150 for each photo and video of her new baby and everyone who uses these photos will receive an invoice from a photo agency appointed to pursue payments.
Since then she has stated that she will give the money to NHS Bolton, but it is not clear whether the agency will also donate their compensation.
A Bolton NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson told MailOnline: & # 39; We are delighted that Gemma and her family have chosen to donate to the NHS. & # 39;
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Gemma and Gorka for comments.
New in: Gemma Atkinson and her friend Gorka Marquez have offered the images of their daughter Mia Louise for sale at a famous photo agency
The couple, dating since 2017 when they met in the BBC dance show, announced their pregnancy in February.
In the past, the actress appeared in a number of spreads with magazines, including OK! Magazine, where she was on the front page in October 2017 to tackle dating rumors between herself and Gorka.
Although she had previously preferred magazine images, Gemma seemed determined that she would not show Mia Louise in such lucrative spreads.
On July 10, Gemma contacted Instagram to respond to various fans' questions about why the couple has so far refrained from sharing photos of the newborn.
Blooming: The move will undoubtedly shock fans, as it is only a week after Gemma went to Instagram to back fans' suggestion that they were not hiding images of the baby because they had signed a lucrative magazine deal
She wrote: & # 39; To people asking why we didn't post photos. No, we have not yet done a magazine deal. We just want all our family and friends to come and meet her first, that's all. It is important to me that they first all get a hold and a hug. & # 39;
Mia & # 39; s Instagram debut comes after Gemma talked about her & # 39; whirlwind nine days & # 39; since she adapted to life as a mother.
Gemma shared a thumbs up and said to fans: & # 39; Thumb up for the new mother club. What a whirlwind I have a little princess (my new friend) at my house 24/7 for 9 days …
Long ago then: the couple, dating since 2017 when they met at the BBC dance show, announced their pregnancy in February (shown in March)
& # 39; Because for the first 30 years of my life I am only the mother of dogs (which by the way are still Norman & Ollie), I have never dreamed that I love someone as much as I do. & # 39;
& # 39; I'm not sure how, but we are blessed with the most relaxed, calm, zen-like baby that so far eats and sleeps every 4 hours and is happy to have a good old time in between kick and squirm in her pram.
& # 39; My sister has 3 children, so I am well aware that this good behavior is unlikely to last, so I am getting the best out of it before she turns on me and lets me claw in my own eyes! Anyway motherhood is a dream and I love it. & # 39;
