Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen kicked off the new year by announcing the happy news they’re expecting their first child together.

The former Love Island stars posted a sweet series of Polaroid photos with a pair of white booties to social media, telling their fans: ‘Happy New Year, Baby Bowen is on the way.’

In the photos, Alex, 30, could be seen kissing Olivia’s bump while the 27-year-old was seen beaming as she held up a pair of tiny booties in another snap. 

They also took a photo of their ultrasound scan strip and pregnancy test on top of a personalised babygrow to announce the wonderful news. 

Olivia also shared a photo of her and Alex cuddling in bed after announcing the news, captioning the snap: ‘Finally.’

The proud dad-to-be also thanked fans for their kind words, writing: ‘Thank you for all the messages. Starting off this year strong.’

Olivia and Alex had revealed at the start of 2021 that they were putting off starting a family due to the coronavirus pandemic.

She said during an Instagram Q&A in January last year: ‘We were thinking about it, but then things just kind of changed, especially with lockdown still happening and the world being so sort of unknown at the moment.’

She added: ‘I know what I’m like and I know I wouldn’t be good at being pregnant during lockdown, I don’t think.’

Olivia and Alex met on the second series of Love Island in 2016 and have been together ever since, getting married in 2018.

The pair also share a stunning home together, which they let fans get glimpses of on social media.
