Olivia and Alex Bowen are expecting their first child

Love Island 2016 runners-up Olivia and Alex Bowen have announced they’re having a baby.

Yet another Love Island couple are set to become parents this year. Olivia and Alex Bowen announced on New Year’s Day that they are expecting their first child together in 2022. They revealed the news with a cute Instagram post of three polaroids and a pair of knitted white bootees. In the pictures, fans can see a babygro, hat and Clearblue pregnancy test alongside three baby scans, Alex kissing Olivia’s bump and Olivia and Alex smiling as they hold the bootees.

Olivia and Alex were flooded with congratulations from both fans and celeb pals - including Stacey Solomon, Cara De La Hoyde and Olivia Attwood. The post on Olivia’s feed has amassed just under 1 million likes while there are over 500,000 on the matching post on daddy-to-be Alex’s feed.

Olivia and Alex’s relationship

Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen first met on series 2 of Love Island back in 2016. Olivia was an OG Islander while Alex entered on Day 18. They coupled up at the first opportunity and finished the show in second place behind Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey (who are also happily married today and parents to two children!).

After leaving the villa, Olivia and Alex’s relationship continued to go from strength to strength. Quickly moving in together, they got engaged in 2017 and tied the knot on 15 September 2018. They shared the lavish ceremony with fans via their TLC reality show Olivia and Alex Said Yes.
