The Hollyoaks actress – who is currently expecting her second baby with fiancé Gorka Márquez – said she has faced horrific trolls over her weight gain.
Rather than get upset by the comments, Gemma called them out.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, she said: “I will always get this stuff – pregnant or not.
“Embrace the changes. My cellulite on my butt has increased tenfold at the moment! My breasts are huge and I struggle to put my shoes on.
“But I grow and create life. My son. And for that blessing I take all of the above and more, including the p***ks on Twitter.”
“It’s always boys who say it and I always think, ‘Would they say that to their mother if they were pregnant?’ I understand in some ways that they don’t see me anymore when I’m working out, but it’s naive that they don’t understand why your body changes.”
“People don’t realize that the hormone influx with estrogen goes crazy. But once the little guy is out and I’m ready, I can correct that. I’m not too concerned about it. I’ve gone the other way if there’s something.”
When fitness is a big part of your life, it must be bizarre to see your body change, but the former Hollyoaks star is embracing it.
“I carried a lot heavier this time,” she says. “I don’t know if it’s because I wasn’t very active in the beginning or just because it’s a boy. I went much softer, much faster,” she continued.
“My legs have gotten bigger. My breasts have tripled in size – Gorka is living his best life with them! He loves it.
“But it happened to Mia too, so I say, ‘Don’t get used to it, because they’re going!’ During pregnancy, your skin and hair shine, but that stops when the baby comes.
“I embrace the changes because it’s a sign that my body is doing what it needs to do. Even with Mia, I wasn’t one of those women who said, ‘Oh no, I’m gaining weight.’
“You’re growing into a human being. It’s bizarre to see yourself completely different from what you’re used to, but then you see the baby on the scans and you think, ‘Crikey, they’re actually in my stomach.’
‘I also have cellulite. But once I made the connection that it’s not because I’m lazy or greedy, but because I have three times the amount of estrogen – the hormone that produces cellulite – you understand.”
Gemma, who is already a mother to daughter Mia, announced earlier this year that she was pregnant with her second child.
