It ended with the Love Islander about to pop a gender reveal balloon surrounded by her friends and family. But fans will have to wait a little longer to find out whether the baby is a boy or girl, with Laura and Gary keeping that information under wraps for now.

As she shared the happy news on Instagram, it was captioned with: “Our hearts are full Baby Lucy due Summer ‘23”. The reality star was quickly flooded with congratulatory messages from fans, friends and celebrity co-stars.

Faye Winter, who entered the Love Island villa during ITV’s 2021 series, reacted: “Congratulations beautiful, so happy for you.” While 2019 star Maura Higgins replied “Congratulations" followed by a string of heart eye and red heart emojis.

The announcement comes a matter of weeks after speculation  Laura Anderson and Gary Lucy had split. The pair met on the 2022 series of Channel 4 reality programme Celebs Go Dating.
