Gemma Atkinson just celebrated the birth of her second child, making her family of four now consisting of herself, her fiancé Gorka Márquez, and their daughter Mia.
The former Hollyoaks actress has reportedly signed up for a brand-new ITV reality series that focuses on parenthood in the hours following, however.
The Real Motherland, a TV program that will allegedly debut on ITVBe and the streaming service ITVX, would purportedly follow a group of famous pals and give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at their homes and professions.
Along with Gemma, other contestants reportedly include Brooke Vincent from Coronation Street, Jennifer Metcalfe from Hollyoaks, Roxy Shahidi from Emmerdale, and Amy Walsh from soaps.
We are so accustomed to seeing famous mothers on our televisions, with a variety of reality shows about parenting, a source told The Sun, but this new endeavor will portray a whole different aspect to motherhood.
The highs and lows of a group of actual women managing their professions, kids, and home life in a unique glimpse behind closed doors are all that can be seen here. There is nothing spectacular to be seen.
The source went on to say that Gemma’s timing after giving birth to her kid “could not have been more perfect,” as “the struggles of this huge transition in her life will all be captured on camera.”
The series is rumored to start production shortly, and further names of the celebrities participating have not yet been released.
On July 19, Gemma, 38, and Gorka, 32, sent a statement on Instagram announcing the arrival of their baby, saying, “Little guy is here! He is absolutely beautiful and came safely. Mia is already acting like the hen of the family we anticipated.
Before Gorks had to depart for Strictly rehearsals the next week, we are all at home together enjoying this wonderful little bubble.
“I appreciate all of your kind good wishes. Our family is finished.
Later, Gemma wrote: “And a massive massive thank you to the maternity unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital.” She also expressed her thanks to the medical staff who treated her. All of you are angels.
“We might have really expected better treatment from all of you. Just as you were with Mia, your kindness and knowledge were superb. I’m grateful.
