She's just moved to Essex to be with boyfriend Nathan Massey and now Love Island's Cara de la Hoyde is hoping to add a brand new puppy to their lives.

They aren't quite ready to add babies to their lives just yet, but Love Island winners Nathan Massey and Cara de la Hoyde are hoping to become parents to a puppy in the near future.

The reality stars, who met on the summer series of Love Island, have just set up home together in Nathan's native Essex, moving into a swish new pad last month.

But living in Essex meant Cara had to uproot from her Kent home, leaving friends and family behind. And, with Nathan out at work during the day and Cara still settling in to life in Essex, it seems she gets a bit lonely at times.

Chatting in the new issue of Reveal magazine, Cara tells us: "I want a Boston terrier. I've moved to Essex, I don't know anyone and Nathan goes to work. I'm at home on my own and I just want a little baby."

A fur baby that is, not a human baby…

Nathan says they're in no hurry to get engaged, married or start a family, pointing out: "I'm not going to rush – that's when you start to ruin relationships."

Love Island final: Cara and Nathan's speeches to each other

Cara and Nathan won Love Island in June.

Nathan and Cara aren't the only Love Island couple hoping to adopt a puppy at some stage: runners up Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland have also said they'd like to add an animal to their household.

Like Nathan and Cara, they've also just moved in together in Essex, with Alex leaving his Wolverhamption childhood home to live with Olivia at her flat in Essex while they save to buy their first property.

Alex recently told us: "I want a place that has a garden because we want a puppy. A little Frenchie (French bulldog) called Giorgio."
