The Love Island star has unveiled her bump and discussed how she found out that she was going to have a baby...
There’s been pretty big news for Love Island fans today, as last year’s winners Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey have announced that they’re expecting their first child.
Despite the fact that they confirmed their break-up in April, the 26-year-old has shared the happy news and says that her former beau, 24-year-old Nathan, is committed to being there for both her and the baby – although a romantic reconciliation isn’t on the cards.
Opening up about her life-changing news in a new interview, Cara explained exactly how she discovered that she was expecting her first child.
Cara revealed that a medical appointment had alerted her to the news.
Talking of her time at the doctors, Cara told OK! magazine: ‘They have to check if you’re pregnant first, but I said to the doctor: “I don’t think there’s any need for that!”
‘They did it anyway and a nurse came back and said: “You’re pregnant!”
‘I was with my mum and we just looked at each other in complete shock. I went in for one thing and came out expecting a baby.’
Touching on her relationship with Nathan, who she met on last year’s Love Island, she continued: ‘We’re still good friends.
‘He’s going to be there for the baby and I’m making him aware of all the midwife appointments and scans, so he’s in the loop and so’s his mum.’
