Manchester Evening News - - THE DIARY -

In a pod­cast in­ter­view, the Love Is­land cou­ple con­firmed that they have a son and ex­plained why they de­cided not to re­veal the gen­der pub­licly un­til now.

Speak­ing to ‘Elz the Witch’ in a pod­cast for JD Sports, the pair said they wanted to keep the gen­der to them­selves.

They were asked: “So you guys have kept the gen­der of him, well we’ve been say­ing him so we know, a se­cret. Why did you choose to do that?”

“It wasn’t so much of a se­cret,” said Jess.

“I think it’s be­cause peo­ple were ex­pect­ing some grand an­nounce­ment,” added Dom.

“We just en­joyed keep­ing it to our­selves,” ex­plained Jess.

“Ev­ery­one talks about the new­born bub­ble. It’s just you and him get­ting on with life.

“We share quite a lot I feel. So I just didn’t feel the need to an­nounce what he was, who he is, what­ever.

“But we’re not afraid of show­ing it. We’re not hid­ing him away.”

They fell in love on Love Is­land in 2017 and in Oc­to­ber an­nounced the ar­rival of their first baby.

Dom, from Manch­ester, shared an adorable photo on In­sta­gram of him­self leav­ing the hospi­tal with their tiny bun­dle of joy in their car seat.

And Jess shared a snap of their baby’s tiny feet writ­ing ‘Baby Lever’.

Dom and Jess met on the ITV2 dat­ing show Love Is­land and the fol­low­ing year they mar­ried on the Greek Is­land of Mykonos.

The loved-up cou­ple an­nounced the news that they were ex­pect­ing a baby on In­sta­gram in May with a photo of the baby scan.
