Love Island’s Jack Keating has welcomed his first child, just eight months after he left the villa.
The 23-year-old appeared in series eight of the ITV reality show and entered Casa Amor, before being dumped just five days later.
Jack is also the son of Irish singer, Ronan Keating, who was part of iconic British boyband, Boyzone.
He shared a black and white photo of him cradling his newborn daughter on Thursday night (9 March).
He wrote in the caption: “Welcome to the world my little princess’ with an emoji of the girl in a tiara.
And many were quick to send their congratulations to the reality TV star, including his mum and dad.
The proud parents gushed in the comments, with Jack's mum Yvonne saying that she missed her granddaughter 'so much'.
While Ronan called the newborn a ‘little cutie’.
However, many fans have questioned whether Jack had been in a relationship before he entered the villa, given that he appeared on the show less than nine months ago.
Viewers have begun to speculate in the comments, with one confused fan wrote: “I know I’m bad at maths, but the math ain’t mathing on this at all!!! Love Island isn’t even 9 months ago yet. I mean I know accidents happen but…."
Another asked: "So did he have a gf when he was in Love Island correct me if I'm wrong it said he was in the villa 8 months ago and a baby takes 9?!"
Jack and his family have not responded to the comments at the moment.
Tyla has reached out to Jack's reps for comment.
However, the social media manager recently revealed last week (2 March) that he is still single.
In an interview with The Irish Independent, he said that he is currently on dating app but admitted that he is enjoying the single life.
He said: "I’m still single and ready to mingle. I’m on Hinge [the dating app], but I don’t use it too seriously. I dip in every once in a while and I’m enjoying being single."
The 23-year-old will also be giving reality TV another shot as he tries to find true love in an episode of ITV's Dinner Dates later this month.
Jack told the publication: “I just did Dinner Dates with ITV, and that comes out in March. Filming took a couple of weeks and I met some nice girls and ate some nice food, so it was a full experience.”
