On the same day, Gemma took to her Instagram Stories where she revealed to fans that she had gained 2.5 pounds during her pregnancy.
She explained, “I’ve been tracking my weight throughout this pregnancy, just because I’m really interested in the body and stuff.
And to put it in perspective, when I found out I was pregnant I weighed 71kg, which is about 11kg. Yesterday I weighed 88.7 kg, about 13.8 (stone), so about 13 and a half stone.
“So yeah, two and a half bricks I’ve put on so far,” before adding, “My health is perfect and that’s what’s important.”
Gemma and her strictly professional beau are expecting a baby boy, their second child after the birth of daughter Mia, three, in 2019.

The outing comes after the actress revealed she was ready to embrace maternity leave as she relaxed in the sun with Gorka and daughter Mia.

Earlier this year, Gemma admitted that Gorka was “afraid he might hurt the baby” when they got frisky during her pregnancy in a hilarious confession.
The presenter frankly discussed the couple’s sex life in an interview in April.
Speaking on Steph’s packed lunch, Gemma joked that she told Gorka, “it’s not going to get there!” as she joins expert Dr. Patel joined the show.

Gemma, who is expecting a boy, joked: ‘The first time he was with my dude he was always afraid he’d hurt the baby and I’d say ‘don’t flatter yourself, it’s not going to be all the way there!’
“I know that’s not going to happen, but this time I asked a lot more questions.”
She continued frankly: a lady told me that having an orgasm during pregnancy is fantastic, it’s like a little massage for the baby.
“But then someone else said it’s terrible because your uterus is contracting and you could crush the baby. Is it safe to go through the whole trimester during pregnancy?’
Dr. Patel assured the former soap star that she could have sex just fine, adding that some women are very excited when they are pregnant due to the high levels of hormones released.
She replied, ‘Well, that’s good news for Gorka! In the beginning like when you say about hormones when I first found out I was pregnant that was a reason I knew because my hormone levels were high and I was like “come on!” don’t keep away from him.
“At this stage I couldn’t think of anything worse at the moment, but it’s great to know that if and when it happens it’s safe, which takes the pressure off you, relaxes you more, definitely makes it more fun. ‘
