But they returned home yesterday, where Olivia uploaded a super-cute video of her and Alex being reunited with their dog Reggie.

Alongside the clip, she said: ‘Reunited with our baby. So happy to be with my two boys again @ab_bowen & @manlikereggie ❤️💑🐶.’

Now, eagle-eyed fans may have noticed that Olivia wasn’t wearing her newest accessory. But there was no reason to worry.
