Olivia Bowen has confessed that she isn’t bothered about gaining weight during pregnancy and says she’s “enthralled” by how the human body works.
The former Love Island star, 28, and fellow Love Islander Alex Bowen 30, are expecting their first baby together after hooking up on the dating show in 2016 and tying the knot two years later.
Earlier this month the blonde beauty admitted she “had a wobble” but insisted she’s been relatively lucky throughout her pregnancy.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the TV personality wrote a lengthy post about how her journey was going so far.
She placed the words on top of a black and white selfie which showed off her big baby bump.
She wrote: “Weight gain in pregnancy doesn’t faze me. Not really. Hardly think about it tbh! If anything I’m enthralled by my new body & what it’s doing for my baby.”
Olivia revealed how “feeling like a completely new person” was the hardest thing about being pregnant as she can’t do some of the things she’s used to, such as horse riding or working out in a certain way.
And she told her 2.8 million followers she wanted to talk about becoming a “new version of you”.
She continued: “People often talk about the weight gain & the body changes & I get that it is the focus for some (even though I wish it wasn’t) but I personally am more interested, intrigued & nervous at the change in my mentality, in my personality.
“That for me has been a challenge. I love my body. Period. Never questioned it lol. I want to look out for new mums’ mental well-being & their transition to what feels like a new identity, it has for me. “
The family are keeping the gender of their child a surprise but announced last month they are expecting the child to be born in June.
Olivia has regularly updated her fans with how the journey is going and has uploaded a series of images with her belly on show.
Last month she wrote on Instagram: “I’ve become so much more comfortable and calm about becoming a mum & expecting now. It just seems to take time to get used to it!”
And on Wednesday she uploaded a new pic showing how her bump is ever expanding. She looked amazing is she posed in a chic wool dress as she enjoyed the rare warm UK weather.
The outfit, which included a revealing leg slit, perfectly showcased her bump as she cradled her belly.
