Love Island Australia’s Justin Lacko became a dad seven weeks ago with his ex-girlfriend after leaving the show single


LOVE Island Australia star Justin Lacko may have left the villa single, but six weeks ago he became a dad with his ex-girlfriend.

Justin was sent home by his fellow islander Eden Dally in a shock double dumping in the 2018 series that’s being aired on ITV2 this summer.

Despite being unlucky in love, fans are thrilled to discover he’s now dad to a little boy.

Posting a gorgeous snap of the newborn on Instagram, Justin wrote: “Welcome to the world Leo Jace Barone-Lacko! Born 11 May 2020. how I will treasure you forever. My love for you is unconditional.”

He dated the mother of his child – Anita Barone-Scott – on and off for five years, but they broke up before Leo’s birth.

Justin told The Kyle and Jackie O Show: “You know you can’t force something that’s not really meant to be there,’ he said of the demise of their romantic relationship.

“I have all the support in the world, and she’s beautiful, and I adore her.

“But I just think that this situation where it is now is probably the right thing for both of us.”

Justin left the villa on day 18 after failing to find love.

He was partnered up with Millie – but they’d both friendzoned each other.
