Olivia Buckland has shared her thoughts on the first Love Island baby, telling Reveal that she thinks pregnant Cally Jane Beech is going to make an "amazing mum".

In October, Cally revealed that she and boyfriend Luis Morrison are expecting their first baby together. The pair starred together on Love Island's first series in 2015 and have been dating ever since.

Olivia, meanwhile, featured on the second series of the show but is good pals with Cally. Reacting to her baby news, Olivia told us: "I'm just so happy for her."

Olivia said: "For Cally to have a baby, oh, it's just going to be so sweet. I think she'll be an absolutely amazing mum."

We asked the reality star if Cally's news had made her broody at all, and while Olivia admits she does get broody, she admitted she's not ready for a child of her own just yet.

She joked: "I'm going to go round and get my broodiness out on someone else's baby! I'm not having one of my own at the moment."

Cally first announced her pregnancy news via social media. She shared a photo of a pair of baby shoes to Twitter and Instagram and told fans: "I have the best news to tell you all me and my amazing man @luismorrison39 are expecting an addition to our lives in 2017."

She then made reference to the couple's pretend baby they had become parents to in the Love Island villa, baby Jamal, adding the hashtags: "#loveisland #jamal."

Luis, meanwhile, shared a screenshot of himself and baby Jamal and said: "Got some unbelievable news that I thought I'd share with you all! I'm excited to announce that Me & @MissCallyJane are having a baby #jamal."

Since then, Cally has been researching baby names and has admitted it is "driving her mad" waiting to find out whether she is having a boy or a girl.

Olivia, meanwhile, has welcomed a new addition of her own with boyfriend Alex Bowen - a pet puppy.

The couple went to meet their pooch, a French bulldog pup named Reggie, following their holiday to Barbados, and gushing over her little man, Olivia told her Instagram followers: "Welcome to the family fur baby. Our little boy Reggie at 2 weeks old - been waiting for this for so long, can't wait to bring him home when he's ready. We are in love @ab_bowen #frenchie #frenchbulldog."

Her and Alex's new addition comes after they recently bought their first home together. Alex and Olivia had been living together in her Essex flat, but recently up scaled to a three bedroom house with a garden, so that they could get themselves a dog too.

The pair first met while in the Love Island villa this summer and since then, their relationship has been getting more and more serious.

In fact, the pair have already spoken about marriage and Alex has revealed that Olivia has already chosen her engagement ring.

Speaking to us back in September, Alex said: "I've never been this happy. Before I went on Love Island, I didn't even have an idea of when I'd move out of home - now I've got a girlfriend, we're getting a house together and I'm happy.

"I'm not going to say it's going to be a year until I propose because then she'll be there like, 'Erm, it's a year to the day and you haven't proposed!' So it could be less, it could be more. She's already sent me a picture of the ring that she wants though."
