Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez have shared the first picture of their newborn daughter and revealed the child's name as Mia Louise Marquez.

The actress, 34, welcomed the child with her 28-year-old partner on July 4.

They announced the news on Instagram at the time, but did not reveal the child's name.

Atkinson and Maquez broke the news by posting a series of photographs of their baby on Instagram on Tuesday evening.

The child's middle name is the same as her mother's middle name, Louise. She will take her father's last name, Marquez.

In the images, Mia is seen with her eyes closed and dressed in a pink knitted top and white bottoms.

Atkinson and Marquez both captioned the photo with the child's full name, which they bookended with love heart emojis.

Katie Piper and Ashton Merrygold from JLS were among those who congratulated the pair after the pictures were shared.

During her pregnancy, Atkinson affectionately referred to the child as Mini Marquez.

Last week the pair hinted the birth had not gone smoothly, telling fans the child had given them "quite a fright at times".

Atkinson and Marquez met on Strictly in 2017, when Atkinson was partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec and Marquez was dancing with Alexandra Burke.

Mia was born at the Royal Bolton Hospital in Greater Manchester.
