Gemma Atkinson has revealed that she instilled a love of sport in her three-year-old daughter from an early age as the pair hit the gym together.
The 37-year-old actress shared an adorable video of her and daughter Mia Louise working out together at their home gym while the tot followed her mom’s moves with some toy weights of her own.
Gemma shared a clip of them warming up and then doing some exercises together as she told her followers: “Every Saturday we spend time in the gym.
“She asks questions, she observes, she learns, she grows. I hope you always want to train with me Mia.’
Gemma shares Mia with her partner Gorka Marquez, who she met while performing together on Strictly Come Dancing.
With two parents so obsessed with fitness, it’s no wonder Mia is already showing interest in going to the gym herself.
Gemma also shared some sweet clips of Mia trying out the gymnastic rings hanging from the ceiling – with a little help from mum, of course.
She was heard saying, “Mommy, let’s take this one at a time. You go and then me, ok?’
Gemma could be seen holding on to the rings and pulling her knees up to her chest before Mia chimed in: “My turn!”
The couple rounded off their training session with some stretches on the floor – although their two dogs seemed eager to get in on the action.
Gemma struggled to get into a cobra pose – which Mia nailed – because one of her dogs also tried to interfere and seriously got in her way.
Mia is definitely the cutest fitness buddy – and there’s no better time to start learning great life habits.
