Gemma Atkinson gave fans an insight into the cake-filled baby shower her closest family and friends threw for her ahead of her welcoming her first ever child.
The 34-year-old soap star is currently expecting a baby with 28-year-old Strictly Come Dancing sensation Gorka Marquez.
With her due date inching ever closer, Gemma celebrated her forthcoming bundle of joy alongside her sister, niece and own mother as her closest friends gathered around her over the weekend.
“Such a wonderful surprise baby shower,” the former Hollyoaks star (and once-time girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo) gushed a she shared a cache of photos from the big day.
“Cannot Thank my family and friends enough for all making the effort to come and celebrate with me and Baby Marquez and for bringing so many lovely gifts,” she continued.
“Afternoon tea and cake and of course, Prosecco and cafe patron for guests. Top day!” she added.
Gem shared photos the showed the day involved plenty of balloons, delicious-looking cupcakes, brownies, Victoria sponge, banana cake, donuts and more.
Any fans hoping for insight as to whether Gemma and Gorka will be welcoming a boy or a girl would be disappointed to see there was seemingly no gender reveal cake – and decorations for the day had a long silver and black colour code.
Gorka was not in attendance for the shower as he is on the road with Strictly co-stars Aljaž Škorjanec and Giovanni Pernice.
However, Gorks had commented about the baby shower himself – even before Gemma had shared details.
“HAPPY BABY SHOWER,” the Spanish star wrote via social media.
“Wish I could be there today with you @glouiseatkinson , even though it’s a girls thing and you would be kicking me out anyway,” he joked.
“Have the best time celebrating with family and friends! Can’t wait for baby marquez arrive and see the awesome mama you are,” he continued.
