Following their pregnancy journey, the couple then went on to share the gender of their baby.

The couple were snapped standing under a pink balloon arch as Grant stood next to Lucy, who sported a pink maxi dress, and lovingly holding her belly.

Since he found fame on the show, Grant has since gone on to have a career change, moving on from his former profession as an electrician to begin his own clothing line, as well as following personal training and modelling.

Grant was crowned the winner of the 2018 series with his then girlfriend Tayla Damir, who famously ended their relationship just two weeks after the show ended.

Shortly after the news of their break-up was announced, it was reported that Grant hadn’t been entirely honest when signing up for Love Island because he was still in a relationship during the show.

It was reported by The Sun that Grant had a secret girlfriend for the whole duration of his time in Spain.
