Tyla Carr featured on the hit ITV2 show Love Island last year but didn't find a romantic companion while on the island.
Tyla has now revealed that she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend of nine months, Ross, who likes to keep out of the limelight.
Tyla and Ross have known each other for nine years after they were introduced to one another by a mutual friend.
The pair only started dating romantically nine months ago after they had a random encounter while both holidaying in Majorca.
Speaking to OK! Magazine Tyla revealed that after just a week of living together, she found out she was pregnant and actually took the pregnancy test in a Nando’s toilet!
She explained: ‘We stopped for lunch after I bought the test and I couldn’t wait until I got home. When I saw it was positive, I ran back to tell Ross – it felt like the longest journey of my life!
Tyla added: ‘I was over the moon but part of me was worried too. We haven’t been together very long and we’d only just moved in together. I started to panic that we had rushed.’
She’s not the only former Love Island star to be having a baby. Malin Andersson starred on the show back in 2016 and announced she was pregnant with her first child last month.
Emma-Jane Woodhams also gave birth to her first child with her boyfriend Jordan Bye in January.
None of the former stars have gone on to have children with people they met on the show but at least it looks like they’ve finally found their perfect match!
Tyla and Ross haven’t revealed if they are expecting a little boy or girl but Tyla is thought to be around four months pregnant so could give birth around Christmas time.
When it comes to the father of her child, Tyla admitted that it was refreshing to be with someone who doesn’t want to be famous.
She said: ‘He’s really happy for me to do my own thing, but he’s very private and has no interest in being in the spotlight. It’s really refreshing to be with someone who has no interest in the industry. He has a great job running a logistics company and is a property developer too.’
Congratulations to Tyla and Ross!
