It happened in 2019 when Gemma was forced to have an emergency Ceasarean when her unborn daughter Mia’s heart rate dropped suddenly.

The 38-year-old opened up about the traumatic experience after memories were brought up during the birth of her second child Thiago last month.

“My first birth was a traumatic one,” Gemma told MailOnline.

“They gave me a form about blood transfusions that asked if one of us had to be saved, which one would it be.

“It could have gone very differently. Immediately afterwards you think to yourself, ‘Gosh, would I go through that again?’ Then you look at your child and think, ‘I’d do it all again tomorrow.’ That’s the nature of motherhood.”

In a new three-part documentary series, fans will follow Gemma’s journey after she fell pregnant for a second time.

Despite having a healthy four-year-old, Gemma was told she was “high risk” after what she previously went through.

She welcomed newborn Thiago last month, telling fans: “Little man is here. He arrived safe and sound and he’s utterly wonderful. Mia is already the mother hen we expected her to be.

“We’re all home together soaking up this lovely little bubble before Gorks has to leave for Strictly rehearsals next week.

“Thank you for all your lovely well wishes. Our family is complete.”

The couple became an item after meeting on Strictly in 2017.
