Gemma Atkinson only welcomed baby Mia with partner Gorka Marquez in July, but her body has already dramatically changed.
The former Emmerdale star showed off the results of her workouts as she shared before and after snaps with her being five months pregnant, six weeks after giving birth, and then 15 weeks after baby Mia.
Gemma showed off her toned stomach in a skimpy grey sports bra as she unveiled her body transformation, sending her fans wild.
She captioned the snap: "Dear body, Thank you!
5 months pregnant / 6wks PP / 15 wks PP. All different but all for a purpose. Growing my baby, feeding my baby, becoming strong and healthy again to be there for my baby. My training has even more purpose now I have Mia. I’m her role model!

"My health & mentally feeling good was always my priority with exercise. It was never to compete on stage or to chase a certain physique. It was just to be the best version of ME! By making good nutritious choices with my meals without depriving myself (hello once a week cheesecake & pizza) I’m slowly getting back into it."
She added: "I’m still limited to what I can do exercise wise after an emergency C section but doing something is better than doing nothing. I started with just cardio around 8wks PP and last week I had my first session back in the gym.
"It was tough and I had to go back to basics but afterwards I felt Amazing! It’s always worth it once those endorphins kick in. As the saying goes, “No one regrets a workout once it’s done” Despite being physically weaker in the gym after time away, I feel mentally stronger than I ever have going through what I did to bring Mia into this world.
