- Motherhood means different for different people.
- People have their versions of it.
- Though people including celebrities praise that state of life a lot, it comes with its baggage of problems.
Not all dare to talk boldly about it. But radio presenter cum actress Gemma Atkinson who recently delivered a child has given an honest perspective of the whole thing. Let us know her views.
Gemma Atkinson and her delivery
Gemma Atkinson, 34 is a former contestant on the show Strictly Come Dancing. She is currently dating the professional dancer, Gorka Marquez. In February this year, Gemma revealed to her social media fans that she is expecting her first baby with Gorka.
On 4 July 2019, Gemma gave birth to their daughter Mia at the Royal Bolton Hospital by emergency C-section. But the whole event frightened the couple. Hence, Gemma was in the hospital for four days.
She wrote on her Instagram:
“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. She’s incredible and she certainly made an entrance, giving us all quite a fright at times! Little Miss independent already!”
“Thank you SO much to the nurses & doctors at The Royal Bolton Hospital who did the most incredible job taking care of myself and my baby,”
She wrote further:
“You’re all so wonderful and I’m so grateful to have had you all with me and to have been under your care these past four days.
“Back home now for family time and to introduce little lady to her big brothers Norman & Ollie…. “Let the next life chapter begin.”

“Mia is asleep and Norman [her other dog] is down the stairs, so I’m having a bit of one-on-one with Olly Bolly, because I don’t want him to feel left out and I think he has done a little bit today.”
In the posted video, she kissed her pet and continued:
“you don’t need to though.”
