Former Love Island star Alex Bowen left his social media followers in a tizzy as he shared an adorable new photo with his two-month-old son.
The 31-year-old and his wife Olivia, who met on season two of Love Island, welcomed their first child, a boy named Abel Jacob, on June 10.
On Tuesday (August 9), the fitness expert treated his Instagram followers to a new shot of the little one which saw him resting on Alex’s lap as they cooled down in their jacuzzi, which wasn’t turned on.
Alex could be seen cooing over his smiling son, who looked sweet in a blue swimsuit romper, and captioned the image with two emojis, a blue-heart and a face welling up.
Unsurprisingly the heart-warming post had fans of the couple commenting in their droves about how ‘cute’ little Abel is.
One follower wrote: “He's so cuteee”.
“Awwww Alex this is beautiful,” another commented. “Awwww how beautiful he's just beautiful Alex”.
A fourth added: “Awww this is beautiful not a better bond than a father and his son.”
“He is just the cutest little boy eveeeeer,” another wrote.
This isn’t the first time the couple have shown their son’s face, with Olivia previously sharing a pic from a photoshoot of them, a week after his birth.
The couple previously announced they were expecting their first child together at the start of the year.
The loved-up pair first met during season two of Love Island, and tied the knot in 2018.
Throughout her pregnancy, Olivia candidly shared the highs and lows of her journey. Speaking to Tyla in April, Olivia opened up about how the last few months had been a 'rollercoaster'.
"[In the past] I'd never felt so maternal, I never thought this was a road I would be so excited to be going down. I was a party animal and a horse rider, and when I became pregnant I had to stop some of that and it is quite a hard transition," she explained.
"Obviously you do it with a huge grin on your face because you’re about to have a baby and that’s massive, but it is such a big change and people underestimate what you go through mentally and as a person.
"I’ve literally felt like a different human, and it’s a lot to take on, especially for someone like me who has struggled with anxiety and depression.
"It’s scary to see yourself change and you do question a lot... Sometimes people are scared to speak about it because they're scared to be judged, when really we all should be there for each other because it’s such a rollercoaster."
