But she admitted: “One of my biggest fears for Mia, in the environment we’re in now, with the ­Instagrams and the filters and the quick fix, these jabs and pills, it terrifies me that she’ll say, ‘Mum, I’ve read that if I do this injection it will make me thin.’”

“I don’t want her to grow up watching me moaning about what I’m eating or covering up a bit of cellulite or moaning about my weight and stuff.”

The actress admitted that giving birth to Mia is the biggest workout she’s ever had.

She said: “From the minute you find out you’re pregnant, it’s a workout because you’re constantly trying to monitor what you eat and what you do, especially for the first three months. I was a nervous wreck.”

One sadness Gemma has about being a mum is that her Scottish dad will never get to meet his granddaughter or Gorka.

David died aged 52 from a heart attack when she was 17. But she has fond memories – especially their trips to Scotland on holiday.

She said: “My father’s side of the family are from Dumfries. I love it up there – the people are great and the scenery is something else. We used to have a caravan up in Kirkcudbright which we would go to every Easter and in the summer holidays. I have fantastic memories.”

Last year, she shared a photo of David with her on his ­shoulders at the same age Mia is now. His death ­encouraged her to stay fit and healthy. “It hit me that life’s too short,” she said. “Dad was 52 and very healthy.”
