The gorgeous 34 year old took to Instagram to share a candid shot of herself hours after her waters broke, surrounded by her doting dogs Olly and Norman.
Gemma was seen sat on the floor adorned in a silver dressing gown in the sweet image, while her cute pooches snuggled up to her on the floor.
“Gorks took this picture a few hours after my waters had broke,” Gemma told her 1.1 million followers.
“They didn’t leave my side, they were totally aware little sister was on her way.”
Fans were quick to comment on the gorgeous shot, with one writing: “So heart warming, I love the way you have kept them feeling so included,” while another gushed: “My boxer Jake did exactly the same- didn’t leave my side! Even when I weren’t into the toilet, he came with me. When I bought my son home from hospital he loved my baby. Gorgeous memories xxx.” [sic]
The pair have yet to show their little one to the world, and on Thursday Gemma revealed the reason why.
Gemma wrote on Instagram: “To people asking why we haven’t posted any pictures. We just want our family and friends to come over and meet her first, that’s all. It’s important for me that they all get a hold and a cuddle first.”
Days after becoming a first-time mother, Gemma thanked her fans for their sweet messages, as she also described her baby girl as “wonderful”.
She wrote on Instagram: “Thank you all for your lovely messages. Our daughter is so wonderful.
“I’m slowly getting to grips with motherhood, learning loads and I’m loving being in this little cocoon with her.
“I feel extremely lucky to be on this journey with mine and Gorks little human”.
