Love Island’s Dominic Lever and Jessica Shears expecting first child


Love Island couple Dominic Lever and Jessica Shears are expecting their first child together.

Jess and Dom met on Love Island in 2017 and last year became the second couple from the show to get married.

Now they’re starting a family, sharing a picture of an ultrasound scan on their respective Instagram pages.

Jess wrote alongside the picture: “The best is yet to come.”

Dom added: “Living the dream .”

The pair got engaged just three months after meeting on Love Island two years ago.

Speaking to OK! Magazine in 2018 at their wedding, Dom said: “People said we wouldn’t last but now we’re husband and wife. We’re proof that when you meet the right person, there’s no need to hang around.”

“I always thought it was a cliche when people said ‘When you meet the one, you know’, but it’s true,” added Jess. “I knew we’d be together forever from very early on.

“I’m so excited to be Mrs Lever and to spend the rest of my life waking up next to Dom.”

The real wedding came after the pair unofficially tied the knot on Good Morning Britain on Valentine’s Day, and it prompted quite the reaction.

They were dressed in swimwear as they said their vows to one another live on TV last year.

Jess and Dom announced in 2017 that the had become engaged, just months after meeting on series three of ITV2’s Love Island in the summer.

Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland became the first Love Island couple to tie the knot earlier in 2018.

Meanwhile other Love Island babies include 2015 couple Cally Jane Beech & Luis Morrison’s daughter and Love Island 2016 winners Nathan Massey & Cara de la Hoyde’s son.

Love Island will start its fifth season in June on ITV2.

Although not yet officially confirmed, it’s rumoured the new series will begin on Monday, June 3.
