Laura Anderson is expecting her first baby with ex-boyfriend Gary Lucy, who she met last year on Celebs Go Dating.

The former Love Island star, 33, who split from soap actor Gary, 41, in January, after a whirlwind romance, confirmed the news on Instagram on Tuesday with a series of images. 

Laura shared a first look at her bump as she posed in grey Calvin Klein underwear for a mirror selfie.

While it’s not known if the couple have since got back together, it’s clear they are both looking forward to welcoming their new baby. 

The duo have known about the news for a while as they shared a picture of father-of-three who Gary posed with a baby grow in hand in pictures taken at Christmas.

It had the words: ‘The one where we become parents. Baby Lucy due August 2023.’

Oddly, Laura claimed in an interview released in December, that she and Gary had done nothing more than kissing.

Laura insisted they were holding off on the physical side of their romance: ‘We haven’t done anything else even though it probably seems like we have because we’re all over each other, but we’re keeping it PG while we’re on the show.’ 

She told OK! magazine at the time: ‘He makes me feel comfortable and he makes me feel quite adored and protected, which is really nice. He’s a gentleman. 

‘I really like that he’s got four kids, because his kids are so cute and they’re his world. He sends me videos and pictures of them and I just think that’s so attractive.’

She added: ‘He’s a really good kisser too, which is always good!’ 

Gary and Laura met while filming E4 show Celebs Go Dating and Laura was by Gary’s side as he crashed his car in a Boxing Day accident, which saw him narrowly miss serious injury.

After professing their love for each other on Instagram, the couple split and removed any trace of their relationship, including photos of them together at Christmas, from social media.

Gary, famed for his roles in Hollyoaks and Footballers’ Wives, already has four children that he shares with ex-wife Natasha Gray, previously saying his romance with Laura was his first real connection since his 2018 divorce.

Laura was previously in a relationship with singer Dane Bowers but they split for good in October 2022.

They first struck up a relationship in 2017 before splitting when he cheated on her and rekindling their romance in 2021. 

In May last year, Lauren shared with her Instagram followers that she and ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers were having IVF treatment after struggling to fall pregnant.

After they split, Laura packed up her belongings and moved out of the Dubai home she shared with Dane just days later. 

She fell for Gary soon after but all was not well in paradise.  

Sharing a selfie with her dog Buddy to her Stories back in January, Laura hinted that they had broken up.

She said: ‘I know I’ve been quiet on here and not myself this week or so.

‘I’m going through a very difficult time, I actually don’t think I’ve ever felt so stressed in my life.

‘As we know Instagram isn’t real life but over sharing negativity has never been something I like doing. Anyway my thought of the day for us all is – Never lose yourself or your voice.’

And before the post, she re-shared another which wrote about ‘the quality of attention’ rather than the speed of a person’s replies.

Hollyoaks star Gary was previously married to wife Natasha for four years, but they announced they had split in 2018. 

The actor said at the time that it was a ‘difficult decision’ but that their focus remains on bringing up their four children India, now 18, Elvis, 12, and Sadie, eight and Theodore, four. 

Theodore was born weeks after they announced their split. 

A spokesman for the couple told MailOnline at the time: ‘It is with great sadness that we announce the end of our marriage.

‘This was a very difficult decision, but was reached mutually and amicably. No other parties are involved.

‘Our priority is, as always, our children. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision, just two best friends realising it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible. 

We are still a family and will always be loving, dedicated parents.’

Gary – known for his roles on The Bill, Footballers’ Wives, Hollyoaks and EastEnders – tied the knot with Natasha Gray back in 2014.

Before marriage, the couple had been together for a decade.
