The 34-year-old Holloaks star's child with Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez, 28, was born on July 4 at the Royal Bolton Hospital in Greater Manchester.

And while the pair shared the baby's gender with fans they declined to say what name they had chosen for her.

The child will take her mother's middle name, Louise, and her father's last name, Marquez.

In the picture Mia is seen lying on her back dressed in a pink knitted top and white bottoms.

Atkinson captioned the photo with the child's full name, which she bookended with love heart emojis.

During her pregnancy, Atkinson affectionately referred to the child as Mini Marquez.

Last week the pair hinted the birth had not gone smoothly, telling fans the child had given them "quite a fright at times".

Atkinson and Marquez met on Strictly in 2017, when Atkinson was partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec and Marquez was dancing with Alexandra Burke.
