20th October 2022

Shaughna Phillips is delighted to be expecting her first child with her mystery boyfriend.

The former Love Island star celebrated the news with OK! and told us about the moment she discovered she's pregnant.

The 28 year old, who is 17 weeks pregnant, bought some tests after a bout of tiredness.

The star revealed that within 10 seconds the test showed up as positive – something which sent Shaughna into a wave of emotions.

"I felt like I was going to explode – with happiness and shock," she told us. "I didn’t know what to do. I felt like I was having an out-of-body experience."

The reality star said at the time of taking the test she was at home with her two French Bulldogs Bunnie and Biggie.

"I thought I’d read it wrong at first," she said of seeing the result.

"I was convinced I wasn’t pregnant. So I did another one, which was also positive. I then ran to the chemist to get a digital test and that said three-plus weeks, which is the most it goes up to. I had only just come off the pill a few weeks earlier after being on it for over 10 years, so I hadn’t had a period since March."

The first person Shaughna told was her brother Callum, who was the only other person in the house with her.

"I screamed his name and he came running out thinking there was a burglar in the house or something," she explained.

"I said to him, “I’m pregnant! I have a baby in my belly.” My mum was on holiday in Turkey, so I FaceTimed her immediately and showed her the positive pregnancy test. At first she thought it was my dog Bunnie who was pregnant! I was like, “No, it’s me!” She started crying straight away and she cried for about four days. She’s so excited and I can’t wait to see her with my baby."

Shaughna shares her baby with her property developer partner who doesn't wish to be in the public eye.

Speaking of how she told him they are going to have a baby, she said: "He was working so I rang him and I was like, “Are you on your own?” He was like, “Yeah…” I said, “I’m pregnant,” and he was like, “OK, alright then.”

"I think it took him a minute for it to sink it. It was just a complete shock for both of us."

She then added that he "can't wait" and that the duo keep telling their dogs they're going "to be a big brother and sister."
