Love Island's Nathan Massey has congratulated his girlfriend Cara de la Hoyde on "giving birth" - but all is not as it seems...

Nope. Cara wasn't secretly pregnant with Nathan's child, but she and Nathan did welcome a new addition. The couple recently got themselves a pet puppy and introducing him on Instagram, Nathan couldn't resist cracking a joke with his followers.

He shared a photo of the pair's dog Sonny and told fans: "Now tell me this ain't the cutest little sod u have ever seen. Congrats to @cara_delahoyde to giving birth to such a beautiful child. See you soon Sonny."

We guess Sonny has basically become their baby now, right? So it kinda makes sense. Kinda.

Nathan's photo of little Sonny went down a treat with fans, and many were seen gushing over the puppy. One user posted a heart-eyed emoji and commented: "Look at him!" Another said: "Omggggggggg!!!!!!"

Although, not everyone was completely convinced Nathan was as smitten as he seemed. TOWIE's Tommy Mallet called out Nathan for not actually wanting a dog when Cara had been hoping to get one.

He commented in response: "Shut up. You didn't even want a dog... Don't act like a dog lover for the Gram."

Tommy, just look at that little face! It's enough to turn anyone, right?!

Nathan and Cara first revealed they were getting a puppy at the start of November. Sonny (a teeny blue Frenchie) made his first appearance on Cara's Snapchat.

Cara had also spoken of her hopes to get a dog during her second appearance on TOWIE. She and Nathan had returned to the ITVBe reality show to make a cameo at Tommy and girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou's anniversary party.

Cara said: "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."

She and Nathan first start dating on the second series of Love Island and went on to be crowned the winners of the show. Since landing their £50,000 prize money, Cara and Nathan have moved in together in Essex and have said that marriage will be on the cards, although it may be a while until Nathan proposes.

Speaking to Reveal, Nathan told us: "Moving in together has been a big step already and we don't want to push things too far. It's lovely just to have our first home."

Cara added: "We both know it's heading in that direction and we'll be together forever. At the moment, we're really looking forward to having Christmas in the house together."
