Atkinson and Marquez welcomed their first baby together earlier in July, announcing the news on Instagram.

“And just like that, we’re a three! Our beautiful daughter arrived on Thursday 4th July and myself and Gorks couldn’t be happier,” she wrote.

“She’s incredible and she certainly made an entrance, giving all quite a fright at times. Little Miss independent already!”

She went on to thank the midwives, nurses and doctors at The Royal Bolton Hospital. “You’re all so wonderful and I’m so grateful to have had you all with me and to have been under your care these past 4 days,” she wrote.

The former Emmerdale actress met Marquez in 2017 on Strictly Come Dancing. Rumours soon circulated about a romance between the two, but they didn’t confirm their relationship until Valentine’s Day last year.

Since giving birth, Atkinson has shared a series of images with her followers, keeping them up-to-date on journey into motherhood.

Last week, she provided her fans with an update, writing: “Thumbs up to the new mums club. What a whirlwind 9 days it’s been having little princess (my new bff) at home with me 24/7.

“Being only maternal towards dogs for the first 30 years of my life (which btw Norman & Ollie are still my everything). I genuinely never dreamed I’d love someone as much as I do her.”
