Gemma Atkinson shaves baby bump daily
Pregnant star Gemma Atkinson shaves her baby bump every day.
The 38-year-old actress is currently expecting her second child with her fiance, 'Strictly Come Dancing' pro dancer Gorka Marquez, and the former 'Emmerdale' star revealed she has been grooming her tummy during her pregnancy.
Speaking in an Instagram video, she said: "What else ... hairy tummy. Even though I’m shaving it, daily, that’s probably why it’s hairy."
Gemma also told fans she was going bra shopping because she is at the stage of pregnancy where it was "sports bras only", and she needed to purchase some new swimwear after discovering she looked like 'Batman' character The Penguin when trying on some outfits ahead of her summer holiday.
She said: "I'm off shopping today again. Bra shopping. Because I'm at the stage of sports bras only at the minute.
"I look like Oswald Cobblepot [The Penguin in TV series Gotham] this morning. I tried some swim stuff on for my holiday in the summer.
"I looked like Danny DeVito [who played Oswald/ The Penguin] in Batman [Returns]. I said to Gorka, 'I'm going to have to go and buy some stuff today.' "
Gemma also admitted she had started "sweating profusely" at times, but admitted it was "very handy" being able to use her baby bump to place her mug on.
She added: "Sweating profusely, those have started. Yeah just the usual stuff that comes with growing a human.
"To any other expectant mums I’m with you, I am with you."
In January, Gemma confirmed she was pregnant.
Alongside some black-and-white photos of her growing baby bump, Gemma - who already has Mia, three, with Gorka - wrote on Instagram: "Impossible to hide my belly any longer. I've officially "popped". Our baby boy will be joining our family later this year.
"We feel so incredibly blessed and Grateful to be on this journey again. Mia is absolutely thrilled!
"Although we may need to do some negotiating on names, as so far she's adamant he's going to be called Barbie. (sic)"
Gemma and Gorka met when the actress competed on 'Strictly' in 2017, and the loved-up couple got engaged in February 2021.
