Love Island star Laura Whitmore has delighted fans by giving them a glimpse of her beautiful baby bump.
The 35-year-old TV presenter and Iain Stirling announced on Wednesday that they are expecting a child together, after reportedly getting married in secret last month.
Appearing in a stunning shoot for Hunger Magazine, Laura showed off her blossoming tummy in all it's glory and admitted that being pregnant is "surreal".
In a snap shared on the publication's official Instagram page, Laura is seen wearing a black bra and matching knickers with an oversized denim jacket as she protectively holds her bump.
The Irish star looks incredible with her blonde hair slicked back and lashings of bright red lipstick.
In the accompanying interview, Laura said she found pregnancy "surreal" and "mad".
"Nothing and no one ever tells you that it is your own personal experience," the mum-to-be explained.
"I found the first three months really hard because I was very sick and nauseous. There were a few times on live radio where I actually got physically sick during the show.

"I had one guest in the studio and to this day she still doesn’t know that I’m pregnant, and I think she just thought I was hungover.
"I had to run out of the studio and she had to ask herself her own question live on air because I had disappeared!
"I can't even describe it because every week is so different," she added.
Laura went on to say that she feels "lucky and blessed" and admitted that she and Iain found out the sex of their unborn child early on.
Posting another snap from the shoot on her own Instagram page, Laura can be seen laying on her side wearing a pair of tights and a sheer shirt with high heels.
She captioned the sexy image: “I’ve spent almost 6 months hiding or being conscious of my body (well to be honest I’ve spent over 30 years doing this).
“But in particular as my body changed I have felt very protective of my baby bump.
“I’ve seen all sorts of comments ‘oh Laura’s had a boob job’ ‘her legs are too skinny’ ‘has she put on weight? ‘ ‘she needs to eat more cake!’
“I want to say a massive thank you to Ryan and everyone at @hungermagazine for giving me the space to talk about my pregnancy on my terms and in my words.
“And the legend @clairerothstein for showing my bump in such an empowering way and making me feel like a f**king QUEEN!"
Laura's 1.2 million followers were quick to comment on the post, with one person writing: "AMAZING!!! Congratulations."
A second person added: "So so so happy for you laura," and a third commented: "So happy for you both."
The very happy news follows reports that Laura and Iain secretly married in an intimate ceremony at Dublin's City Hall in November.
According to the official wedding certificate, Laura's half-brother Adam and Iain's sister Kirsten were witnesses.
A source told The Sun: "Iain and Laura are so in love, they really wanted to get married as soon as possible.
"Despite circumstances not being ideal, it was such a romantic day."
