Love Island's Laura Anderson announces she’s expecting first child with Gary Lucy

Love Island star Laura Anderson has announced she's expecting her first child with her partner, actor Gary Lucy.

Sharing a compilation clip on Instagram of their pregnancy journey so far, she wrote: "Our hearts are full. Baby Lucy due Summer ‘23."

The heartwarming montage includes the 33-year-old showing off her baby bump, as well as her ultrasound scan and her protective Pomeranian doggo.

It ends with Laura sharing the celebrating the happy news with her pals. You can watch the compilation below:

The reality TV star started dating 41-year-old Gary of Hollyoaks fame while filming the latest season of Celebs Go Dating.

Although the couple were recently rumoured to have split, clearly they are going strong and both appear delighted by the news.

Fans have flocked to the comments section to share their congratulations, with one writing: "Here’s me thinking u guys split up... congratulations am so chuffed for yous."

"So pleased for someone I don’t even know," said another, while a third added, "You will be the best mumma ever."

A fourth chimed in: "I was NOT expecting that!!! Thought you guys were over. Congratulations Laura you will be a super hot mummy."

"I am so beyond proud of you," commented a fifth. "You will make the best mama."


Fellow reality TV stars joined in on the well wishing, including The Only Way is Essex's Jess Wright, who said: "Aww congratulations."

TOWIE's Chloe Brockett added, "Congratulations both of you," while Love Island alum Maura Higgins said, "Congratulations."

Everyone's delighted to see Laura in such a good place, especially since she had quite the turbulent ride on season four of the revived ITV show.

The former flight attendant had her heart broken more times than most people do in a lifetime during her stint in the villa.

To refresh your memory, Laura coupled up with Wes Nelson on day one, and things were going swimmingly for the pair, with Wes admitting he was 'falling' for Laura just a week into their relationship.

But things took a turn when Megan Barton-Hanson famously made her move on the 20-year-old and asked him for a kiss on the roof terrace.

Laura was betrayed by numerous friends on the show.

Laura then moved on with Jack Fowler when he entered the villa, and it seemed like things were finally going her way - until Jack's dreaded date with Georgia Steel that saw her insisting she's 'loyal, babe'.

But despite facing betrayal from her man and from her friends, Laura managed to keep her head high, proving it's always better to forgive.

Thankfully, that's all well in the past, and Laura's set to start a new chapter in life. All that's left to say is a huge congratulations!
