Strictly Come Dancing star Gemma Atkinson was warned by her mother that she should have more children with husband and professional dancer Gorka Marquez

Gemma revealed the news on Steph’s Packed Lunch on Channel 4, where she explained how her mother wants her to wait a little longer before having more children

The 36-year-old actress, who shares one-year-old Mia with her Strictly Come Dancing boyfriend Gorka, announced that her mother believes Mia can wait a little longer for siblings

It comes as Gorka, who Gemma met when she joined Strictly in 2017, is preparing for this weekend’s finale with dance partner Maisie Smith

Gemma chatted on Steph’s boxed lunch from Channel 4 today about her excitement at finally being back with Gorka after nearly three months

The dancer will return home on Sunday after 87 days of separation from his family, adhering to strict Covid guidelines while taking part in the BBC show, reports Der Spiegel

“My mother already said to me, Mia is still too young, no more siblings, wait until she is older She warned me! “Gemma joked

During the show, the proud mother was also asked by someone who she thought could raise the Strictly Glitterball this weekend

“This is the first year I can’t pinpoint It’s so close, they were all so good

“Jamie has so much enthusiasm, Bill has been on his journey, Maisie and HRVY have been really consistent and getting better and better every week

Gemma stated that it supports Gorka and Maisie for obvious reasons, although it will be a difficult task who wins

She added, “It’s everyone’s game, anyone can win. Obviously, I’m fixated on Gorka and Maisie and all of my votes will go for them”

Gemma was a cheerleader for Gorka and Maisie who continue to pull out all the stops in this year’s competition

A few days ago the professional dancer shared an adorable video in which little Mia Gorka sees on TV

The father of one is only days away from reuniting with loved ones – however, it remains to be seen whether he will return home as a Strictly Champion
