"Our beautiful baby daughter arrived on Thursday 4th July and myself and Gem couldn't be happier. She's incredible and she certainly made an entrance, giving us all quite a fright at times," said Gorka.

Gemma also shared some touching words on Instagram next to the definition of 'family'.

"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.

"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. 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 4 days."

Big congratulations to the happy couple!
