There must be something in the water for former “Love Island” stars as Shaughna Phillips has announced she’s pregnant, due in March 2023, just a month after Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury also revealed they are expecting their first child. The 28-year-old, who appeared on the first Winter “Love Island” in 2020, revealed the happy news on Instagram on 20 Oct.
Phillips posted a video showing her at an ultrasound scan, holding the positive pregnancy test, visiting her late Dad’s grave, and showing the scan photo. She captioned the video with, “Our greatest chapter yet… ✨🤍”. It is unclear who she is expecting with as she prefers to keep her boyfriend out of the limelight, but fans noticed the scan photo referenced “Shaughna & Billy”.
The lovely announcement comes just days after Phillips has to leave the NTAs early after she fell unwell and has to leave the awards show early. She took to social media to tell her followers that she was fine, “almost fainted” and had a “dodgy turn”.
Fellow Islanders were quick to comment on her pregnancy post. Demi Jones, who said she’d watched the video 50 times, commented, “I love you so much 😭😭 I’m so happy and proud of you!!! 👶❤️❤️❤️” while Molly Smith added, “Ahhhhh congratulations angel ❤️❤️❤️”. With Phillips and Hague’s blossoming bumps, we are declaring 2023 as the year of the mini Islanders — and we can’t wait to meet them.
