GEMMA Atkinson shared an adorable video of daughter Mia watching dad Gorka Marquez dancing with Maisie Smith on Strictly.
The 15-month-old toddler was thrilled to see her professional dancer dad on the telly, and even showed off some moves of her own.
In the clip, Mia is wearing yellow trousers with a cute rainbow T-Shirt as she stares at the television in awe.
She smiles as she recognises Gorka, and when 35-year-old Gemma asked: "Is that your papa dancing?" Mia begins to dance herself.
Gemma captioned the sweet post: "Gorks and Maisie take 9 in our house 😂🤦🏼♀️ 'Gen Gen' whilst pointing at the tele has been our Sunday evening @gorka_marquez".
The soap star has thrown her support behind Gorka and Maisie, proving that she doesn't fear the so-called Strictly Curse – despite first finding love with the Spanish hunk when she took part in the 2017 series of the BBC One show.
On Saturday, the blonde beauty shared several posts to her Instagram Story showing her excitement for Strictly's first live show as Maisie and Gorka prepared to perform for the judges.
The pair went on to finish in second place on the leader board, having scored three 8s from the judges for their energetic Samba.
Gemma was paired with Aljaž Škorjanec when she took part in the show, and Gorka with Alexandra Burke.
However, rumours of a romance between them began circulating during filming – which was then confirmed on Valentine's Day two months after the finale.
Their relationship has since gone from strength to strength, and they welcomed baby Mia last July.
In keeping with Strictly's health and safety rules amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Maisie is living alone while competing on the show so that she can join Gorka and Gemma's support bubble – which means that they don't have to socially distance.
However, show bosses are more worried about the 19-year-old EastEnders actress' relationship with fellow competitor HRVY.
She and the 21-year-old singer have been caught flirting online, and an insider told us that producers are keeping a strict eye on them to ensure they don't breach social distancing rules with a romance.
The source said: "Maisie and HRVY are being monitored by the producers after it’s become clear their connection could easily lead into a Strictly romance.
"They’re both young, single and hot and the thought is that the two of them could bring the other cast into risk if they break the guidelines and get closer.
"They have both been told, as have the rest of the cast, that kissing is off limits. Usually the Strictly cast are very tactile. Not in 2020."
HRVY is partnered with Janette Manrara, who is married to fellow Strictly pro Aljaž.
