Gemma Atkinson melts hearts with gorgeous video of baby Mia just weeks after her birth: ‘Content little blue eyed peanut’

Gemma Atkinson has melted hearts with her latest video, as she shared footage of her little girl Mia just weeks after her birth.

The 34 year old recently welcomed her first child with Gorka Marquez, and has given fans heartwarming updates about how the pair have taken to parenting.

On Friday, Gemma gave fans a surprise treat to start their weekend – as she shared one of the first videos of the pair’s beautiful baby girl.

She captioned the adorable footage with the words: “Content little blue eyed peanut!”

Gorka sweetly responded to the footage, saying: “My little princess!”

The new mum's heartwarming snap comes after the former Hollyoaks star opened up about her traumatic labour.

In a caption alongside an image of herself and Mia in hospital, she detailed the trauma her body went through trying to bring a new life into the world.

She began: “This picture was taken when Mia was 30hrs old. The weary smile on my face doesn’t quite portray how happy I was inside as 30hrs earlier, things could have gone very differently.

“Mia was a tiny baby, 4lb 10, with that in mind the midwife was concerned she wouldn’t be strong enough to open my cervix.

“My water broke on a tues & we gave her the benefit of the doubt but by the Wednesday evening despite her being in the perfect place & so low down, she still hadn’t managed it.

“The decision was made to induce me to help her along but she disliked that even more.” [sic]

She continued: “With every contraction her heart rate dropped. On the 3rd one midwife Katie who was taking care of me at the time pressed the panic alarm & within 15 mins I was rushed out, prepped & delivered Mia via an emergency C section.

“Gorka got a doctor and she took 1 look at me & again pressed the panic button. I was having a hemorrhage. A big one & I lost a lot of blood.

“I don’t remember much other than having around 9 doctors in the room, some injecting me, hooking me to drips, physically pulling clots out of me & one comforting Gorks who was beside himself in the corner.

“I woke in another room with Gorks & my family there, Mia sleeping soundly & a lovely midwife named Di who was checking my notes.

“The trauma was over & thanks to our NHS & incredible hospital staff we were ok. I’m fully aware for some people it’s a different outcome & I feel incredibly lucky that me & Mia are healthy & healed.”
