"It’s changed after having a baby, but that made me more determined to do this shoot – my body is not better or worse, just different.

"Maybe it’s important to show that to other women?… I was always straight up and down, like a surfboard, but now I’ve got a bit of a waist.

"When I put on high-waisted jeans, you can see I’ve got hips. I reckon I’m about 3% J Lo now, so I’m happy with that."

Gemma also opened up on her approach to how she has been exercising since undergoing a C-section.

She told the publication: "The C-section completely floored me. I couldn’t brush my hair I was in so much pain."

"A caesarean goes through seven layers of fat, tissue and muscle, so it takes a long time to get better and, for me, it wasn’t sensible to start exercising until around 15 weeks after Mia was born," Gemma said.
