Gemma and Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka welcomed daughter Mia in July last year.

Speaking about their love life in Fabulous magazine, she said: “People have said to us that after having a baby the passion goes, but I don’t think the passion for him could ever go. It’s still there, just sometimes it’s not a priority because you’re tired and you’ve got a baby.

“Some people try to force the fact that they’ve got a night free so have to be intimate… but if that’s forced, it’s not worthwhile anyway.

“We’re at such a comfortable stage whereby I can do the whole sexy underwear thing and it’ll be great, but equally I can also come in with baby sick on a baggy T-shirt and greasy hair and it’ll still be fine.”

When did Gemma and Gorka meet?

Gemma and Gorka first met in 2017 when the former Holloaks star took part in Strictly Come Dancing.

She was partnered with Aljaž Škorjanec, who is married to fellow dancer Janette Manrara, and the pair were said to have clicked behind the scenes.

However, Gemma and Gorka, who was partnered with Alexandra Burke in the same series, didn't make things official until after the Strictly tour was finished, posting a snap of each other on Valentine's Day 2018 confirming their romance.

Do Gemma and Gorka have children?

Gemma gave birth to baby Mia in July 2019, they announced the arrival of their child few days later, confirming that she gave birth on 4 July 2019.

“And just like that, we’re a three! Our beautiful baby daughter arrived on Thursday 4th July and myself and Gorks couldn’t be happier," Gemma shared on Instagram.

However, it wasn’t until days later that the couple shared the first photo of their daughter and confirmed her name as Mia Louise Marquez.

They also told new magazine earlier this year that they were not going to be adding to their brood any time soon.

"We’d love to have a sibling for Mia, but not yet. Let us enjoy Mia and our time with her," he said.

Talking about how parenthood has changed them, he gushed in a recent social media video: "Everything you do, the first thing you think about is your baby. We can’t picture a life without her."

Since then Gemma has insisted that the couple are not thinking about marriage and while appearing on Steph's Packed Lunch on Channel 4 she admitted that she wasn't ready to say "I do".

She told host Steph McGovern: "I don't know if I could be bothered with everything. I'd say no, not yet.

"I'm assuming part of the nice bit of the wedding is the build-up whereby you both plan it together – I know it will be stressful."

She added: "I would be up for a quick wedding, you know, a local registry office, get it done, boom. But I wouldn't if he demanded it here and now, no."
