Gemma Atkinson laughs off cruel comments about baby not being Gorkas

Strictly Come Dancing star Gemma Atkinson has laughed off cruel comments suggesting her fiancé, Gorka Marquez, is not the father of her unborn child

The sweet pair announced on Saturday (January 21) they are set to welcome their second child together, confirming that the tot will be a baby boy.

Gemma and Gorka, who met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 when Gemma was a contestant performing with Gorka's pal Aljaž Skorjanec, already share daughter Mia, 3.

But after discussing her pregnancy on her Hits Radio show which she hosts alongside Mike Toolan, 38-year-old Gemma could be heard reading out some online comments in response to her announcement.

After Gemma confirmed the fact that she’s "with child", Mike explained that they were going to read some of the not-so-nice comments posted about her news online.

Gemma proceeded to share a remark made by someone about her body, saying: "This is one from a guy called Steve-O. [He says] ‘Well, that’s her body ruined,'" to which Gemma and Mike burst out laughing.

Gemma went on: “I’m assuming Steve-O was birthed at one point. What does his mother look like?” Sharing another comment, the former Hollyoaks and Emmerdale star read: "Are we sure this baby’s even Gorka’s? The amount of fellas she had, it could be anyone's! Hope this relationship fails."

As Mike laughed, Gemma also saw the funny side and took the rather bizarre comments in her stride.

In response to the clip, one fan commented: "Love how you just get on with it and ignore the haters," to which Gemma replied: "Got to laugh! They must really dislike themselves to have an account on a site just to type and send mean stuff. Who the hell has time for that? I can’t even wash my hair twice a week."

And others were also quick to applaud Gemma's response. One fan shared: "Love how you laugh at the stupid jealous comments Gemma. Best way to do it." A second wrote: "I bloody love this, instead of hurting you, which is what they intended.. they've provided us all with a laugh. Haters make great comedians in a happy environment."

While a third added: "Gemma, you're amazing. Love the fact that you just crack on. Keep being you!"

Meanwhile, Gorka, 32, shared how he “couldn't relate” to his fiancée as she reeled off a list of pregnancy symptoms as they relaxed in bed together.

The professional dancer looked both amazed and concerned as his wife-to-be spoke about varicose veins, constipation and breast tenderness as she read from her phone.
