Love Island's Marcel Somerville announces his girlfriend Rebecca Vieria is PREGNANT
Love Island's Marcel Somerville has announced that his girlfriend Rebecca Vieria is pregnant with his first child.
The Blazin' Squad star, 34, also emotionally revealed that the happy news comes one year after his influencer girlfriend tragically suffered a miscarriage.
Marcel, who recently nearly died after a scary hospital stint, shared that he discovered he was going to be a father while recording in the studio.
He told OK! Magazine: 'I was in the studio with my headphones on and she tapped me on the shoulder.
'She had loads of pregnancy tests in her hand, just to make doubly sure. It was crazy! It's my first baby and I've been waiting a long time for this, so it's just mad.'
Marcel and Rebecca have been together for 14 months, they celebrated their one-year anniversary in May. They first met at a London nightclub in 2018.
The couple revealed that they had been trying for a baby for months and it 'took a little while' to get pregnant after they tragically suffered a miscarriage.
Marcel shared that their miscarriage happened 'very early' in the relationship and that the ordeal brought them closer together.
He told the magazine: 'We both took it really badly. It took a little while for us to get over it, but it did make us stronger because when you go through something like that, it makes you be there for the other person.'
The couple added that they 'still worry' during their current pregnancy and that Rebecca took '100 tests' to make sure she was pregnant.
It's happy news all-round for the cast of Love Island 2017 as Marcel's co-star and close friend in the villa, Camilla Thurlow, is expecting her first child with beau Jamie Jewitt.
Camilla, 31, and Jamie, 30, both met on the ITV2 dating show and they announced the reality star's pregnancy in May.
It comes after Marcel recently revealed that he nearly died after being rushed to A&E with COVID-19 symptoms.
Talking about the scary incident during the interview, the musician revealed that he has discovered he has Type 1 diabetes and was unknowingly suffering with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
