Gemma Atkinson, the renowned reality TV star, recently opened up about her experiences as a second-time mother. She gave birth to her son, Thiago, last month, adding to her family with Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez. The couple also shares a daughter, Mia, who is now four years old.

Gemma, 38, candidly discussed the differences between her first and second experiences of motherhood. She expressed that while many focus on the challenges of having a second child, there are aspects that feel easier the second time around. Gemma emphasized that many concerns she had as a first-time mother seemed trivial during her second experience. She shared her journey through two contrasting photos on social media: one from before she had children, showcasing her toned physique, and a recent one with baby Thiago.

The Hits Radio presenter also touched upon the initial challenges she faced after Mia's birth, feeling she might never regain certain aspects of her pre-motherhood life. However, with her second child, she feels more relaxed and confident in her role as a mother.

Gemma's post was met with overwhelming support from her followers, many of whom shared their personal experiences and resonated with her sentiments. The star also offered words of encouragement to first-time mothers, urging them to celebrate small victories and remain optimistic.

In addition to her reflections on motherhood, Gemma also delved into her relationship with fiancé Gorka Marquez. The couple met in 2017 during Gemma's stint on Strictly Come Dancing. They recently teased fans with a trailer for their upcoming reality series, "Gemma & Gorka: Life Behind the Lens," set to premiere on August 30th. The series promises to give viewers an intimate look into their lives, including the challenges and joys of parenthood.
