Gemma Atkinson says daughter, two, has her own set of dumbbells and loves being in gym – The Mirror

Gemma Atkinson has said her daughter Mia is following in her footsteps – by getting her own set of dumbbells in their home gym – despite being just two years old.

Gemma, 37, is a known fitness fanatic, having participated in the Great Manchester Run and other races countless times while balancing her TV work.

The soap star has now made the claim that her healthy lifestyle is starting to rub off on little Mia too.

She revealed: “We have a home gym, so I use the weight training machines. Everything that I do, I make sure it fits around Mia’s schedule.

“She has grown up seeing me in the gym and loves being there. She has her own set of baby barbell weights.”

The former Emmerdale and Hollyoaks actress was also forced to hide a gruesome discovery from Mia over the weekend.

Gemma spent Sunday reuniting with former co-star Kelly Condron who plays Zara Morgan in the Channel 4 soap, as the Manchester Evening News reports.

Taking to her Instagram Story on Monday morning (April 25), the Hits Radio host said: “Last night I came home… there was a lamb’s tail in my garden. I’m not even joking. I’m not going to post a photo of it because obviously it’s not nice.”

Panning her phone to show her stood in her garden next to the field of lambs and sheep, Gemma repeated: “A lamb’s tail. I think, well my mate googled it because I sent it in the girls group, and Nat said they dock them. I didn’t know that. So I think a bird has picked it up from there and dropped it here.

“Didn’t tell Mia, she’d be traumatised,” Gemma added.

Gemma shares Mia with her fiancé, Stricty Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez.
