Gemma's followers were quick to share their well wishes, including some of her MAFS co-stars.
Chanita Stephenson commented: "YAAAAAASSSSS the news its out you already know how happy I am for you both. Wishing you all the best."
Kwame Badu added: "Awww Congratulations."
Meanwhile, a fan wrote: "After everything you went through on MAFS, to see you come out on the other side and change your life around you should be proud of yourself."
Indeed, the happy news comes after quite the rollercoaster ride for Gemma.
She recently opened up about her cocaine and booze battle while starring on the hit reality show.
Gemma claims she suffered a “breakdown” as she came off the drug during filming.
Gemma, 31, said: “The first stages where I was falling apart was probably my comedown from my addiction and I should never have been on that show.
“I should never have been cast by them, certainly not. Psychiatrists could obviously tell that I was a bit of a mess."
Hairdresser Gemma signed up to Season 7 of MAFS while hiding an addiction to booze and cocaine that had spanned a decade.
Gemma, from Exmouth, Devon, told The Cabin Recovery podcast: “I thought, ‘I need to stop at least before I go on the show because it’s not going to be accessible.’
“But as you know with addiction you just swap one of the other. Although there wasn’t cocaine around, there certainly was a lot of alcohol in those big glass decanters."
On the show she was paired with Matt Murray but their relationship went south and he 'cheated' on her with fellow bride Whitney Hughes.
After leaving the show, Gemma was blowing so much money on cocaine that she lost her home – leaving her and her two sons homeless.
She admitted: “I lost my home in the middle of all of that. I became homeless through my addiction… 12 years we were in that house.
“We went to a homeless place, luckily I got back on my feet financially and I’m able to afford a beautiful home for us again.

“I can’t believe that I put them through that. I’ll never make that mistake. If I spend all my life making it up to them then I’ll be happy to do that.”
Gemma calls losing the roof over her head a “turning point”. She got help on the 12 Step Programme and hasn't touched alcohol or drugs for over seven months.
