Jess Shears is pregnant.

The "Love Island" star and her husband Dom Lever - whom she met in the infamous villa on the 2017 series of the ITV2 reality show - have announced they're expecting their first child together in a sweet Instagram post.

Jess posted a picture which included a polaroid shot of herself showing off her baby bump, while another showed Dom holding his own stomach, with a picture of their scan in the middle.

She captioned the snap: "The best is yet to come."

Dom posted the same picture and wrote: "Living the dream."

The happy news comes just months after the couple revealed they were keen to start a family.

Jess said in November: "We want loads of children, so we're going to start trying very soon. We're not in a rush but we love kids and can't wait to be parents."

The pair tied the knot in a secret ceremony in October, which was held on the Greek island of Mykonos in front of just 22 close friends and family members.

Speaking about their wedding at the time, Jess, 24, said: "We only had room for our closest friends and family. We're planning a party in the UK when we're home so we'll invite Olivia Attwood, Sam Gowland and Chloe Crowhurst to that.

"I know there were reports that Olivia was going to be a bridesmaid but that was never the plan."

While Dom, 28, added: "We really wanted an intimate wedding and we knew we couldn't have had that in the UK.

"Going abroad meant we didn't have any pressure to invite every Tom, Dick and Harry.

"As we were limited on numbers, we only invited people we see all the time."

The couple couldn't see the point in "hanging around" and waiting to wed because they know they're right for one another.

Dom told the new issue of OK! magazine: "People said we wouldn't last but now we're husband and wife.

"We're proof that when you meet the right person, there's no need to hang around."
