Gemma Atkinson opened up her home to throw an alfresco birthday bash to celebrate her daughter Mia’s second birthday – and it looked an absolute treat.

The 36-year-old radio presenter and her partner, Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez, decided to invite their friends, family and fellow Strictly stars over to celebrate their little girls special day.

Taking to her Instagram, Gemma shared a picture of herself and pals enjoying themselves on the patio, before adding a picture of Mia’s delicious looking yellow drip cake, which had been custom made in the theme of the children’s programme ‘Buster the Bus’.

The former Emmerdale actress then shared a sweet snap of Mia scooped up in her arms, while she and Gorka tried to help Mia, who was also wearing a yellow dress to match her cake, try to blow out her birthday candles.

Ahead of the special occasion, Gemma gushed about her little lady turning two in an adorable Instagram post which showed a picture of Mia after she’d been born.

She wrote: “2 years of you = 2 years being a better me. Thanks for making me your mum Mia.

“We love you so much and seeing the little lady you’re becoming, it’s now so obvious why you were born on Independence Day #2today @gorka_marquez we’re the luckiest.”

To which proud dad Gorka replied: “my little Princess.”

Gorka also shared sweet snaps of his daughter’s special day on Instagram.

He captioned the post: “Birthday celebrations Round 2."

“So nice to celebrate Mias Birthday with our friends and family for the first time even if she is Two," he continued.

“Thank you to everyone who came and made our little girl day so special

"Thanks @charliebakes_ for the Cake safe to say everyone loved it.”

Gorka's Strictly pal Aljaz Skorjanec also decided to swing by to wish his friend’s daughter a happy birthday.

The dancer even admitted to giving himself a cheeky tour of the couple's house with Gemma’s good friend Mike Toolan.

Gorka and Gemma met back in 2017 when the actress was a contestant on Strictly.

Although the pair weren’t partnered together, they quickly became close and announced they were an item in February 2018, before moving in together and announcing they were expecting Mia in February the following year.

Gemma has been extremely honest with her 1.6 million Instagram followers about being a mum and Mia’s birth.

During lockdown in April, the Strictly contestant held an Instagram Q&A where she admitted Mia’s birth has been “traumatic”, but that she was still open to having more children in the future.
