Malia – who was kicked out of the Love Island villa in 2016 after just one day – is reportedly four months into her pregnancy and will welcome a baby girl later this year.

Her fiancé Hope currently plays as a midfielder for League Two outfit Bradford City, after previous spells at Blackburn Rovers and Burton Albion.

Love Island 2015 winner Jessica Hayes also revealed some baby news earlier this year, with herself and partner Dan Lawry set to welcome their first child next month.

Posting on Instagram, the former bank worker announced to her fans: "Baby Lawry arriving [July 9, 2019]. So relieved I can finally reveal this news, it's been super hard to hide for months I've been a bit quiet dealing with sickness, tiredness, bad skin you know the rest...but the belly is growing and it's pretty much impossible to hide now."

She continued: "It definitely was a surprise and wow what a blessing this is, I cannot wait to meet this special little human, you are going to be so loved!"

Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2, and you can catch up on the show via ITV Hub.
