Cara De La Hoyde didn’t have the eas­i­est start to her preg­nancy. Weeks be­fore she an­nounced she was ex­pect­ing a baby in Novem­ber, she and the baby’s dad, her Love Is­land

2016 beau Nathan Massey, 25, an­nounced their split. How­ever, they’ve re­mained friends – and Cara tells us they’re still close when we meet her at the St John Am­bu­lance Ev­ery­day He­roes Awards in Lon­don. ‘We just get each other,’ she smiles. Here, the 27-year-old talks to us ex­clu­sively about her birth plans, her ‘huge boobs’ and her BFF Olivia Buck­land’s wed­ding to Alex Bowen…

HOW ARE YOU AND NATHAN GET­TING ON AT THE MO­MENT

We’re re­ally good. Ob­vi­ously we’re not back to­gether as a cou­ple, but we’re still good friends and we just love spend­ing time with each other. I’ve never met any­one like him – he makes me laugh and we just get each other. It’s nice. We’ve got a dif­fer­ent re­la­tion­ship now – it’s good, and you never know. At the mo­ment, we’re in a good place. WILL HE BE AT THE BIRTH?

Yeah, of course! I’m go­ing to have Nathan and my mum there. I think my mum’s go­ing to be the one with the level head, then Nathan’s go­ing to be on the gas and air! I’ll have to wres­tle it off of him. I think he’s go­ing to stay up this end [points to head] be­cause he’s quite squea­mish! I was talk­ing to him and my mum the other day and asked, ‘Are ei­ther of you go­ing to cut the cord?’ and they were like, ‘Oh, no, no.’ He’s so ex­cited now, I think be­cause it’s a lit­tle boy. Ob­vi­ously, he’d have been equally as ex­cited with a girl, but when a guy’s hav­ing a son, it’s a pride thing, isn’t it? It’s still strange to me that we met on Love Is­land and now we’re here hav­ing a baby!

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR CHANG­ING BODY?

Oh, God, I love it! I saw Ferne [McCann, 27] the other day, and she looks amaz­ing, she looks so good. For the first time in my life I have boobs… it’s crazy! When I was lit­tle, I al­ways wanted big boo­bies, and I never got them. They were all right, but now they’re mas­sive! So yeah, it’s fab­u­lous. My bum looks big­ger, I’m very happy with that. At the mo­ment, through the magic of Bio-Oil, the stretch marks have stayed away.

WHAT WAS OLIVIA [BUCK­LAND, 23] LIKE WHEN SHE FELT THE BABY KICK­ING?

She ac­tu­ally freaked out! She and Nathan’s sis­ter are very sim­i­lar – when they feel him kick, they’re like, ‘Ahh, the baby!’ It was re­ally funny, though, we were at an event re­cently with Alex [Bowen, 25], and I haven’t seen him in ages – I’ll ob­vi­ously stay with Liv when he’s away work­ing and we’ll look af­ter the dogs and ev­ery­thing – and he didn’t re­alise how big I’d got. It just so hap­pened that the baby had just started kick­ing, so I was like, ‘Al, put your hands on it,’ and he did. Olivia loves it, but Al gets so emo­tional, he’s very pa­ter­nal.

ARE YOU LOOK­ING FOR­WARD TO THEIR WED­DING?

I’m very ex­cited, I can’t wait! I know all the be­hind-thescenes gos­sip and it’s go­ing to be amaz­ing. It will be a beau­ti­ful wed­ding. She’ll look gor­geous, he’ll look hand­some – I’m re­ally ex­cited about it. I just hope I can get in shape be­fore the wed­ding. I’ve got a while. The hen par­ties will be in the sum­mer, so I’ve got some months to get in shape. I might not have time to cook, so I’ll have to teach Nathan to cook, ’cause then when he comes round he can make me din­ners!

ARE YOU FRIENDS WITH ANY OF THE LOVE IS­LAND CON­TES­TANTS FROM THIS YEAR’S SE­RIES?

I met Gabby [Allen, 25] and Mar­cel [Somerville, 31] last week. They’re amaz­ing. I was team Mar­cel and Gabby the whole way through the show! I met Camilla [Thur­low, 28] and Jamie [Je­witt, 27], they’re lovely. I also spoke to Mon­tana [Brown, 22]. She’s do­ing re­ally well. She’s a sin­gle woman, and she’s re­ally fly­ing the flag.
