Spanish actress, dancer and model Gemma Marin has racked up more than 1 million views on her viral dancing maternity videos. The videos became so popular that it seemed fitting for Marin to celebrate the arrival of her daughter with one epic first dance.
In February, Marin posted a video that showed her dancing at 33 weeks pregnant alongside her partner, boxer Israel Duffus.
“Three people one soul,” she wrote in the caption.
As of Wednesday, the video had been viewed more than 1.2 million times. Its popularity encouraged Marin to share more dancing videos. The couple even tried dancing when Marin was 40 weeks pregnant in April to help induce labor.
“We’ve tried everything!” she wrote in the Instagram caption. “Spicy, famous salads, teas, walk, sex, chocolate... even yesterday we did another dance! Alexandra is just too comfortable inside.”
A few days later, she gave birth to her daughter, Alexandra. The dancer and her partner celebrated with ― you guessed it ― a first dance with their daughter.
On Tuesday, Marin posted a video on Instagram and Youtube that showed clips of Marin and (a baby-wearing) Duffus dancing as well as clips from their first viral dancing video.
“We are so grateful for having all of you following the last part of my pregnancy, and our life with Alexandra,” Marin wrote in the caption. “Her FIRST DANCE is dedicated to all of YOU.”
According to her Instagram, the proud mom plans on sharing her love for dance with her daughter. In a caption to one of her dancing maternity videos, she wrote, “Dancing is in our veins.”
