Love Island’s Marcel Somerville and his fiancée Rebecca Vieira have become parents for the first time.
The reality star, who appeared in the 2017 series of the ITV dating show, confirmed the arrival of his newborn son on Instagram Stories, where he posted a sweet video of his bundle of joy alongside the caption: ‘My life’.
Rebecca also celebrated the exciting news and shared a clip of her breastfeeding in her hospital bed on her social media.
Last week, Rebecca revealed that she was desperate for her little one to arrive as the past few days had been ‘so difficult’.
‘OUR DUE DATE HAS FINALLY ARRIVED,’ she wrote. ‘To say I’m excited would be an understatement, the journey has been so long but its all worth it to know our son will be here any second now.
‘@marcel_rockyb has been my absolute rock this whole time I honestly couldn’t ask for a better man God blessed me with you & now he’s blessing us both with our little prince.’
She continued: ‘I just want him here now the last few days to get to this point have been so difficult I can’t even pretend, I’ve been THE MOST miserable and hard to deal with person ever but I’m blaming it on the hormones ? lightning crotch and pains aside this experience is beautiful and I’d do it a million times over.. thank you everyone sending me positive and uplifting messages on the lead up to the birth of my son I appreciate you all so much.’ (sic)
Marcel revealed in July that he was expecting a baby with Rebecca.
The singer, who is a member of Blazin’ Squad, said the pair had been trying to fall pregnant for month.
He also shared that they were dealt a devastating blow when Rebecca suffered a miscarriage in 2019.
‘We don’t really like to talk about it,’ he told OK! Magazine at the time.
‘We found out we were pregnant very early in our relationship, and both felt like we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, so we were getting ready for the baby.
‘And then we found out we had a miscarriage. 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.’
