Emmerdale actress Gemma Atkinson hopes to have a baby by the time she’s 32.

(Cover) - EN TV - Emmerdale’s Gemma Atkinson has revealed she's broody and would like a child within the next two years.

The 30-year-old actress has been dating personal trainer Olly Foster since 2013. Gemma is happy with how things are going, but revealed she’s broody after meeting former Hollyoaks co-star Mikyla Dodd’s baby.

"I am a bit broody after seeing Mikyla's baby,” she confessed to Britain's OK! Magazine. “I always said I'd have a baby at 32 – my mum had me at 32 – so hopefully we'll do that in a few years if God allows it.”

Gemma met her boyfriend when she hired him as her personal trainer in 2013. The joint exercise efforts have clearly paid off, as Gemma posed in a range of skimpy sportswear for the accompanying photo shoot with the magazine.

“I train five mornings a week – which, if I'm working, means getting up at 4.30am to train before work,” she revealed.

Gemma joined the cast of Emmerdale earlier this year (15), having previously started her career on rival soap Hollyoaks. She plays the estranged daughter of Bob Hope and was on hand on Monday night (05Oct15) to help celebrate the show’s big win at the Inside Soap Awards.

The ITV serial won eight of the 18 awards up for grabs at the ceremony, including Best Soap.

It is only the second time the Yorkshire-based drama has won the gong in its 20-year history.

Gemma’s co-star Michael Parr was also a big winner for the show, taking home the Best Actor, Sexiest Male, Best Bad Boy and Best Affair awards.

Coronation Street star Alison King scooped the Best Actress title, while EastEnders took home the Best Show-stopper for its live episode which revealed that Bobby Beale had killed his sister Lucy.
