Love Island star Katie Salmon is expecting her first child.
The star, who shot to fame during the second season of the show in 2016 and made history as one half of the show’s first same sex couple with the late Sophie Gradon, took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal she is expecting with her fiancé Harry.
She added a caption alongside a sweet video showing a montage of their baby journey so far, reading: ‘Been Busy Creating Life. First came love, then came you! ✨ 6 months pregnant with our biggest blessing…

‘I’ve kept this between close friends and family for a while but my beautiful baby bump is getting hard to hide. We love you so much already baby and cannot wait to meet you…
‘I couldn’t do this journey with anybody else other than my best friend. 2022 my favourite year off all, The year I marry my love and we become a family.’
Last month, Katie took to Instagram on Christmas Day and gushed over her fiancé as she revealed he popped the question on the beach in Thailand.
Katie is certainly no stranger to causing a stir after her Love Island 2016 appearance. She is best known to viewers of the ITV2 show for pairing up with the late Sophie on the reality dating series.

Sophie was originally partnered with Tom Powell but later coupled up with Katie after he quit the show.
However, Sophie later dumped Katie and bowed out of the show to be with Tom again, leading Katie to pair off with aspiring wrestler Adam Maxstead. Their romance was short-lived, lasting just two weeks after the series drew to a close.
In June 2018, Sophie tragically hanged herself following a cocaine and alcohol binge, hours after revealing she was ‘struggling with the world’.

Katie previously opened up about the abuse she received from the LGBT community, following her same-sex romance with late Love Island star Sophie.
Speaking on the Victoria Derbyshire programme last year, Katie admitted she was the subject of much uproar after her relationship with Sophie, who was tragically found dead in June 2018 aged just 32.
She said: ‘In the villa I was so scared because I didn’t know what the outside world was thinking, what my family was thinking, what my friends were thinking, so I was really upset that they’d not supported me from my own community.’
