Gary Lucy shares sweet comment on Laura Anderson's pregnancy news after the pair split

Gary Lucy shares sweet comment on Laura Anderson's pregnancy news after the pair split

The Love Island star shared the exciting news after previously undergoing IVF treatment

Hollyoaks actor Gary Lucy praised Laura Anderson with a sweet comment on her Instagram post after the pair ended their relationship.

The former Love Island star excited fans with her post on Instagram yesterday (15 February) which revealed images of her growing bump, footage from an ultrasound and snaps of her and Lucy celebrating the news.

Anderson's video indicated she and Lucy were in the pregnancy together, with a caption alongside the video reading: "Our hearts are full. Baby Lucy due Summer ‘23."

Shortly after the news broke, however, it was confirmed that the parents-to-be were no longer in a relationship.

Lucy confirmed the split in a comment to The Sun, assuring he 'loves' Anderson but adding: "We are no longer together."

The Hollyoaks actor, 41, met Anderson on Celebs Go Dating last year and made clear this week that he still wants to be involved in the baby's life.

"My main drive as always is to work together to co-parent our child. I look forward to the arrival of the new baby," he said.

Lucy later took to Instagram to celebrate the news of the new arrival, joining dozens of fans in adding a comment under Anderson's post announcing the pregnancy.

Anderson shared images from her ultrasound with fans.

Referencing the ultrasound images and bump, Lucy commented: "There she is [love heart] so very proud of you. Mummy Bear cooking Baby Bear perfectly."

His comment received hundreds of likes from fans, while the show that brought them together, Celebs Go Dating, shared their own excitement at the news with a series of big-eyed emojis and a love heart.

Fellow Love Island alums Molly-Mae Hague, Tasha Ghouri and Faye Winter also rushed to congratulate Laura on the exciting news.

Anderson's pregnancy comes after she previously underwent fertility treatment while in a relationship with her former partner Dane Bowers.

Anderson and Lucy met on Celebs Go Dating.

During an appearance on Vicky Pattison's podcast, the former Love Island star explained that she'd been on the contraceptive pill for years, so she decided to come off it and attempt to get pregnant.

"I got the app so I tracked when I'd be ovulating. And he was like 'if you're going to come off the pill we may as well track it and do it properly'. And I was like 'alright, ok'. He's like it will probably take ages," Anderson said.

Sadly IVF didn't work out for the couple, but Anderson is now excited to welcome her bundle of joy this summer.
