She’s one of the most down-to-earth ex-Love Island stars, so it’s always a treat to have a gossip with Olivia Bowen.
She’s also one of the luckiest ever contestants of the ITV2 show, having managed to bag her hunky husband Alex Bowen during their stint in the famous villa back in 2016.
And while the pair, who live in a stunning Essex mansion – just around the corner from TOWIE legend Gemma Collins no less – are solid, Olivia, 26, admits they still have their little rows.
“We always bicker about random crap that doesn’t matter,” she tells us. “But we’re in it for the long run, so I don’t think any dirty washing is going to do anything.”
After setting up home together, it’s no surprise that Olivia and 29-year-old Alex are looking to add a baby into the mix soon, and their plans to start a family seem to be coming together.
“We’re on that sort of page now,” she reveals. We can’t wait to meet a baby Bowen!
Speaking of babies, Olivia’s pal and fellow Islander Cara de la Hoyde-Massey has just given birth to her second, a girl named Delilah. And thankfully the pair have finally made amends after falling out two years ago.
Here, Liv tells us how she patched things up with Cara, how she’s found lockdown and how life was very different before fame…
Hi Liv! It’s your second wedding anniversary this month. Have you got any plans?
We were considering going to Mykonos, but I’m so worried about travelling. We’re doing a staycation instead.
How would you describe your first two years of marriage?
A bit of a whirlwind. I still don’t feel old enough to be married – even though I’m 27 in a couple of months. It’s crazy, but it’s been amazing. We’ve been so lucky to have the new house and be setting up our little family home.
Do you ever wish you could relive your big day all over again?
