Maura Higgins has had ‘experiences’ with women in the past but says boyfriend Christopher Taylor is the man for her.
The Love Island stars went public with their romance in November after months of mounting rumours about the nature of their close relationship.
They appeared on the same series of the ITV2 dating show but Maura coupled up with Curtis Pritchard while Christopher went home without finding true love.
Prior to her most recent relationships, Maura reveals she experimented dating other women.
‘I’ve experienced women, but I feel like growing up it’s good to experience things when you’re young,’ she told The Sun On Sunday.
‘I don’t know if people question my sexuality. For me it’s definitely men — well I would say men, but it’s Chris.’
Things seem to be serious between Maura and Chris who are ‘very much in love’ and ‘use the L-word a lot’.
Sharing their future plans, the former Dancing On Ice star continued: ‘I don’t want a baby any time soon, but when I’m ready and settled.
‘I want to be married before I have a baby, so Chris better hurry up and give me that engagement ring, because I’m not getting any younger.’
Chris and Maura confirmed their relationship during a romantic holiday in Dubai to celebrate her 30th birthday.
‘He’s mine,’ Maura captioned a sweet photo of them together, while Chris wrote alongside his post: ‘Turns out I fell in love with my best mate @maurahiggins ♥️.’
Shortly after, Chris, 30, joked in an Instagram post that he was surprised Maura hadn’t dumped him yet as they were still going strong.
During a Q&A with fans earlier this month, Maura hinted at their marriage plans for the first time.
When asked by a follower when they’d be walking down the aisle, the Irish model replied: ‘When are we getting married Chris? Oh god, ermmmm next year?’
Maura then stated that next year was ‘ages away’, prompting her man to quickly change his tune, adding: ‘Alright this year.’
Chris was also adamant that his girlfriend made the ‘first move’ but admitted all the sexual tension came from him.
‘It was probably one way sexual tension though, just me directing it towards her,’ he laughed.
‘You’re like a sphinx, I can’t even tell you fancy me now.’
