Love Island star Kendall Rae Knight has announced she's expecting a baby with her footballer boyfriend Andrew Hughes.

Kendall, 31, took part in the 2018 edition of the popular ITV2 dating show but was dumped from the island on day six after Adam Collard chose to couple up with Rosie Williams.

Although she didn't find love on the show, she has been in a relationship with Andrew for five years.

The pair surprised their followers on Sunday afternoon (10 September) with a snap of herself with Andrew posing together, with the dad-to-be holding the baby scans while Kendall cradled her stomach.

“Mummy & Daddy,” she captioned the post. “After 5 amazing years together we couldn’t be happier to say WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!”

And Kendall’s followers rushed to the comments to share congratulatory messages, including a few fellow former Love Island stars.

Zara McDermott, who was also on the 2018 series but entered after Kendall left, said: “Congrats darling.”
