Laura Whitmore and Iain Stirling are expecting their first child together, the 'Love Island' host has confirmed

Laura Whitmore is expecting her first child.

The 'Love Island' host took to Instagram to reveal she and her husband Iain Stirling – who married in secret last month – are expecting their first baby in "early 2021".

She wrote: "So I’ve always tried to be protective over the personal side of my life. A lot of things are just for me and my loved ones and we’ve chosen not to share publicly. However I want to now share good news as it’s our news to share – and I’m gonna be honest it’s starting to look like my lock down beer belly is out of control. Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021. (sic)"

Laura admitted it has been tough to keep the baby news a secret, and revealed she has been sick during her radio shows in recent months due to morning sickness – rather than being hungover "like everyone thought".

She added: "It’s been hard to keep such happy news quiet. Especially the times when I’ve had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning. I wasn’t hungover like everyone thought. In fact I was completely sober filming the entire series of Celeb Juice, which is quite the accolade!

We’d appreciate our privacy respected but just wanted to spread some love and a reminder of the beauty of life (sic)"

Iain also took to Instagram to reveal the news, and shared a picture of his PlayStation 5 and Xbox games consoles, with a note on that read: "I will miss you."

He added: "Sorry to my old babies but there is a new baby coming early 2021. (sic)"

Several of the pair's pals were quick to congratulate them on their happy news.

Kimberley Walsh shared: "Ah congratulations babe what lovely news! (sic)"

Charlotte Hawkins wrote: "Ahhh big congratulations!! (sic)"

Scarlett Moffatt posted: "Omg congratulations you will make the greatest parents (sic)"

The pair are said to have got married in secret last month at Dublin’s City Hall.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Iain and Laura are so in love, they really wanted to get married as soon as possible.

"Despite circumstances not being ideal, it was such a romantic day."
