Noth­ing says you’re back to­gether like a babymoon, right?

Heat (UK) - - News - ■ CHAR­LOTTE OLIVER

We love a happy end­ing, so here’s hop­ing this one sticks. Af­ter dev­as­tat­ing fans by cut­ting their whirl­wind re­la­tion­ship short in April, Love Is­land alumni Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey kept the sur­prises com­ing by an­nounc­ing that they were ex­pect­ing a baby to­gether a month later. But while they in­sisted that they were noth­ing more than good friends, they’ve had a change of heart and are of­fi­cially back to­gether, just a cou­ple of weeks be­fore their baby boy ar­rives. And if these pic­tures of them en­joy­ing a babymoon at a spa ho­tel are any in­di­ca­tion, they’re very happy about it.

“They’ve never stopped lov­ing each other and, in the last few months, have be­come re­ally close and shown each other how im­por­tant they are,” an in­sider close to the for­mer Love Is­land win­ners tells heat. “The split was never bit­ter, but it was a dif­fi­cult time for them – they’d just found out Cara was preg­nant, but didn’t feel it was right for them to carry on as they’d been hav­ing prob­lems for a while. Cara felt Nathan wasn’t as com­mit­ted as he could be and she didn’t just want to stay to­gether be­cause she was preg­nant. He felt it was a bit too soon for a baby and pan­icked.

“They’re tak­ing things slow again, but friends think they’ll be mov­ing in to­gether once the baby’s born.”

Cara, 27, and Nathan, 25, first met on last year’s Love Is­land, and quickly be­came in­sep­a­ra­ble, mov­ing in to­gether in Es­sex af­ter win­ning the show. De­spite their split, they put on a united front af­ter an­nounc­ing their shock baby news, with both in­sist­ing to fans they were “best friends”. But in re­cent weeks, they’ve been teas­ing us with hints that a re­union is on the cards and have even been do­ing guest ap­pear­ances on TOWIE, which is, of course, a real sign of show­biz com­mit­ment.

Now, we’re told, they’ve taken their re­la­tion­ship to the next level – this time, with con­di­tions at­tached. “Cara wanted to give things an­other go – she feels the baby de­serves that,” our source tells us. “But she wants Nathan to show how de­voted he is to her as well as the baby. She’s told him he’s got to change and al­ways put them first, oth­er­wise she won’t put up with it.”

Over the past few weeks, the dad-tobe hasn’t ap­peared to leave his baby mama’s side, sug­gest­ing he’s heed­ing her warn­ing. Yay for love! Now just do it all on TOWIE, please, so we don’t miss a mo­ment.

We’ll need to have twins now
