Love Island winners Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey engaged

Love Island 2016 winners Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey have got engaged, they’ve announced.


The pair won the show in 2016, sharing the £50,000 prize.

They split up around a year later but soon got back together before welcoming their first child, a son called Freddie, in 2017.

Now the couple have announced their engagement, with Nathan popping the question at the villa they first met.

Revealing the news in an interview with OK! Magazine, Nathan explained: “I brought her back to where we met, and took her on a little treasure hunt around the villa to different places which meant something to us.

“Finally, I blindfolded her, led her to the pool and got down on one knee.”

Cara gushed: “It was so romantic that he proposed in the Love Island villa. This is where we met – we’ve come full circle.”


Since leaving Love Island the pair have become regulars on ITVBe’s The Only Way Is Essex, introducing baby Freddie to the cast last year.

Speaking earlier this year about life with Freddie, Cara said: “Nathan’s such a good dad, he is besotted.”

“It’s absolutely superb,” agreed Nathan, “It’s the best thing ever.

“Fred is amazing, he’s made everything just perfect,” he added to OK! magazine.

Meanwhile, Cara has teased there could well soon be more from the pair on TV.


In an interview last December, Cara said the couple were “in talks” for their own reality series.

She said: “It would be so different from any other show there, because me and Nathan aren’t properly together. We’d mix it up.”
