Gemma, who is on maternity leave from the station, rang in to discuss life as a new mother following the arrival of daughter Mia on July 4.
Explaining that they recently had Mia’s birth registered, she revealed: ‘It was quite sad because until then apparently they officially take the mum’s name but once registered she’s an official Marquez.
‘And I’m the only one now who’s not a Marquez in the family.’
Probed by host Greg Burns about the ‘hint’ she had just dropped, Gemma continued: ‘I said to him “You do know now we need to get married otherwise I’m not part of the family”.
‘He’s like, “Yeah we have time, it’s OK.”‘

Elsewhere in the chat, Gemma touched on her traumatic labour, after revealing she had suffered a haemorrhage following her emergency C-section.
Assuring listeners that she and baby are ‘fit and all healthy’, she added: ‘We had a bit of a traumatic time in labour which is one of them things obviously you can’t plan you can hope for the best but you can’t plan anything.
‘And she was just so little bless her so she couldn’t get out. But we’re all well, we’re all fit, all healthy and Bolton Hospital were fantastic. So yeah I feel great.’
Later in the day, Gemma took to Instagram with a candid post about breastfeeding.
Sharing a picture from the day before when she had enjoyed a barbecue in her back garden, Gemma captioned the snap: ‘What a difference 12hrs makes. BBQ to Burping.

‘This is apparently common in breast feeding and for Mia it’s a good thing because she’s piling on the weight which makes me happy.
‘As tired as I was I couldn’t help but mentally high five her for eating so much! My clever Girl ❤️ Thank God for Netflix, a cosy cuppa and Oreos. They got me through from 1am until 5.30am.
‘Gorks has a show tonight too so if he looks like a zombie at the meet and Great beforehand you know why [sic].’
