“Congratulations!!! The best family and def the best parents,” said Strictly favourite Giovanni Pernice as Dianne Buswell penned: “So excited for you guys congratulations."

Amy Dowden added: “Soooooooooooo happy for such a beautiful family,” while Jowita Przystal – who joined the Strictly family last year – said: “Awww congratulations!!!!!”

Gemma and Gorka’s news comes just after fellow Strictly love birdsStacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton welcomed their first child.

Earlier this week, Stacey took to social media to announce the news of their daughter’s arrival, and shared that they’d named the tot Minnie.

Sharing a snap of a letter addressed to “Minnie’s parents”, documentary maker Stacey wrote: “Our Daughter is here. My little masterpiece! I'm COMPLETELY OBSESSED. Love you Minnie, Love you Kev x.”

Kevin shared the same image with a similar caption, as he wrote: "Our daughter is here."

He continued: "The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. So proud of u @sjdooley. Love u Minnie , Love u Stace x."

Stacey and Kevin, and Gemma and Gorka join Countdown star Rachel Riley and now-husband Pasha Kovalev in sparking up a romance on Strictly and going on to start a family together.

Rachel and Pasha were coupled on the 2014 series of the show and have proven that Strictly relationships can be long lasting as they’ve since gone on to have two kids.
