OLIVIA Bowen bursts into tears as she reveals her pregnancy news to her family and friends in a sweet video.
The Love Island star – who turned 28 years old today – shared the heartwarming clip with husband Alex on Instagram last night.
Paying tribute to their nearest and dearest, she wrote in a gushing post: "We are so unbelievably over flowing with love.
"It’s so hard to find the words to describe anything right now! We could not be more thankful, grateful & appreciative of every single one of your messages. I am reading through them all again & again wondering how we got so lucky to be so loved & cared for by so many people. It’s just so much more than we could ever of expected.
"We managed to film so many of our friends & families reactions over time & every time I cried & felt so bloody happy to be able to share this news with our favourite people in the world. We love them so much for keeping our secret for so long, I know it was difficult haha!
"I cannot watch this without crying! My most emotional video ever, I had to share with you all tonight this part of the journey, it helps me show you how much this means to us & our loved ones. When I thought of telling our closest, it always made me well up, it was something I couldn’t wait to do, so having it all caught on camera for us to relive again & again is like an instant serotonin boost 🥺"
Olivia described seeing her family's faces lighting up as "magical" and said the couple were "buzzing" but "nervous" to become parents.
She concluded: "Again, I don’t think I will ever be able to express my gratitude & gratefulness to how kind you have been & how excited you all are.
"I am so overwhelmed & we are so full of love, Thank you THANK YOU ♥️🍼"
The couple took to social media on New Year's Day to first share the happy news with fans, with Alex, 30, posting a picture featuring baby-related Polaroids.
