Love Island’s Amy Hart pregnant with first child following fertility issues

Reality television star Amy Hart has revealed she is pregnant with her first child after suffering fertility issues

The 30-year-old announced the news when she appeared on ITV’s Loose Women after first appearing on the show to reveal she was having fertility issues in 2019.

She told the panel at the time she was planning to freeze her eggs as doctors had warned her she had a low egg reserve.

The television personality and her boyfriend Sam Rason said the news was ‘unexpected’.

She said: “It was very unexpected. We weren’t going to start trying until next year.

“At my birthday everyone kept coming up to me to ask why I wasn’t drunk. I turned to my best friend and said ‘people are beginning to ask,’ and she said ‘well, you are going to have to do something then’.

“So the Abba tribute band was playing Lay All Your Love on Me and I started crawling across the dance floor, and nobody asked me again.”

Later, she shared an image of the baby in a sweet social media post with Sam.

She told her one million Instagram followers in a joint post: “We’ve both had individual and collective worries over the years that this may not have been the simplest process or that it may not happen at all.

“Interestingly enough, we got pregnant unexpectedly because the app that was telling us the fertile window was so out. So much so that if we’d started trying in January as planned we probably wouldn’t have fallen pregnant as we would have been nowhere near the ovulation days! We were told earlier this year that if we hadn’t fallen pregnant within six months of starting trying, it would be straight to IVF. Life has a funny way eh!!

“Big thanks to @loosewomen for having us today. We felt, as Amy’s talked on the show about fertility MOTs, solo IVF, egg freezing, and even introduced Sam to the world, it was the only place to share the next step of our story. Can’t wait to get back to connecting with you all now we don’t have to bend the truth anymore. As people who always strive to be authentic, it’s been so hard.

“Finally, we just want to say, to everyone who’s shared their journeys with Amy over the years when she’s talked about IVF/egg freezing/AMH, we will always strive to be as sensitive as we can, minimal moaning, we hope to always have a positive mindset. The baby will be an addition to our pages as we share our lives, not the sole focus.”

Amy has shared her fertility journey over the past three years, documenting her egg-freezing journey on her social media pages.
