Gary Lucy has said he's "very proud" of ex girlfriend Laura Anderson following the news that the pair are expecting their first child together.
Laura, 33, excitedly announced the news yesterday, Wednesday 15 January, that she was pregnant and is due to give birth this summer.
The former Love Island star met Gary, 41, on the recent series of Celebs Go Dating. She joined the show following the break down of her relationship with Dane Bowers.
Laura's since said to have called it quits with Gary as well after reportedly calling time on their romance after they attended their baby's first scan.
Gary has since commented on Laura's baby announcement on Instagram and used it as an opportunity to gush over the mother of his child.
"There she is," he wrote. "So very proud of you Mummy Bear cooking Baby Bear perfectly."
It appears as if "Mummy Bear" is a sweet nickname Gary has coined for Laura and made it official with a silver bracelet for the expectant mother with two love-heart charms on it – one for mummy and one for baby – as seen in Laura's pregnancy reveal video.
Gary's heartfelt comment has since generated over 400 likes from the celebrity pair's fans.
Following reports of their split, Gary confirmed to The Sun that he's no longer romantically involved with Laura, but they will co-parent their child together.
"I love Laura but we are no longer together," he said.
"My main drive as always is to work together to co-parent our child. I look forward to the arrival of the new baby."
Laura and Gary's baby will be the Hollyoaks actor's fifth as he already shares four kids with his ex wife, Natasha Gray.
The once-married couple call it quits after four years of marriage and announced their divorce in 2018. They'd been together for a total of 14 years.
A statement issued at the time read: "It is with great sadness that we announce the end of our marriage.
"This was a very difficult decision, but was reached mutually and amicably. No other parties are involved.
"Our priority is, as always, our children. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision, just two best friends realising it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible.
"We are still a family and will always be loving, dedicated parents."
Natasha and Gary are parents to India, 18, Elvis, 12, Sadie, eight and Theodore, four.
