Love Island 2023 is set to kick off on 16 January, with a whole new host of singletons heading to South Africa in the hope of finding long-lasting love.
The ninth series will see Maya Jama take over hosting duties and will take place in Cape Town, where the first winter edition of the show took place in 2020.
Throughout the past eight series of Love Island, we've watched dozens of contestants head into the villa but only a few have found true romance on the show.
Some couples have gone on to tie the knot and even start families together, proving that meeting someone on the ITV2 dating show can work out in the real world.
Others headed back into the real world and soon found love, and there's been many Love Island babies born over recent years.
From Olivia and Alex Bowen to Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt, here we take a look at the Islanders who have welcomed children following their stint on the show…
Molly-Mae Hague & Tommy Fury
Molly-Mae and Tommy met on Love Island in 2019 and were instantly infatuated with one another in the villa, going on to come in second place.
Influencer Molly, 23, and boxer Tommy, also 23, have remained together ever since the show finished, and now own their own home and are getting ready to start their own family.
In September 2022, the couple shared the exciting news that they're expecting their first child together and soon revealed they're expecting a baby girl.
The mum-to-be announced the news on Instagram with an adorable video featuring a snippet from the final speech on Love Island, along with a clip of her and Tommy cradling her blossoming bump.
Molly's due date is said to be just around the corner, and she and Tommy have been eagerly getting everything prepared as they get set to become parents for the very first time.
Olivia & Alex Bowen
Olivia and Alex amassed a huge fanbase after coming in second place on Love Island in 2016, and the couple's romance and careers have continued to go from strength to strength.
Olivia, 29, and Alex, 31, tied the knot in a stunning ceremony in 2018 and in June 2022, they welcomed their first child together – a baby boy named Abel Jacob Bowen.
Announcing the happy news, mum-of-one Olivia wrote: "Abel Jacob Bowen. You are everything. 10/06/22."
Meanwhile, proud dad Alex said: "Abel Jacob Bowen, but you can call him AJ… The day our lives changed for the better 10/06/22."

"After all of life’s ups and downs I can honestly say this morning brought on a monumental change of perspective. From this day forward I promise to be the very best version of myself for you and your mum and do my best to give you both everything you could possibly ask for."
The couple, who met on Love Island in 2017, then tied the knot in a stunning ceremony in Essex in 2021.
