Love Island's Olivia Buckland And Alex Bowen Talk Baby Names
Better open up that Love Island day care asap
Someone should probably get round to opening up that Love Island nursery one of these days, because it sounds like there could be another reality TV baby on the way sooner than we thought.
Fancy watching Alex and Olivia get stuck in with the Girlfriend Does My Makeup Challenge?
Love Island villa alumni Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen might not actually be preggers yet, but they’re so keen to become parents in the near future that they’ve already started talking baby names.
Alex and Olivia, who are set to tie the knot in September this year after coming second on Love Island 2016, have revealed that they can definitely hear the pitter patter of tiny flip flops on the horizon.
It’s Alex who’s feeling mega broody right now, as he told Now: “I want two children, a boy and a girl. A boy first, because I think I’d be too attached to the girl - she’s not allowed out until she’s 18!”
As well as juggling a double whammy social media empire, creating clothing brands, going on endless beach holidays and the small matter of planning a celeb wedding, Alex and Liv are also starting to seriously think about starting a family.
Olivia revealed: “He and his whole family have been chatting about baby names and it’s making me feel like I’m pregnant.
“In the next year we hope to try,” she spilled.
While they’ve been talking about having kids ever since their time in the villa ended, the couple admitted that a certain recent new arrival has made them even more excited to start their own family.
Close pals Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey recently became parents to baby boy Freddie-George, and Alex admitted that he’s more than ready to join ‘em in the nappy changing whenever the time comes.
“It has made me massively broody,” Alex said. “I really want to be a young dad.”
