Liverpudlian lass Hayley, who spends much of her time in Dubai, held a lavish baby shower on the stunning sands complete with balloons and a cute cake.

She teased her happy news with a sign that read: “Baby bear what will you be?” positioned in front of a cuddly toy.

Alongside the table set up – at the heart of a beach and under a white canopy – were pampas plants, bunches of flowers and a huge cake.

Hayley revealed the sweet treat all cut up – showing a blue sponge to indicate her tot’s gender.

Then came a confetti stream of blue streamers before she posted a loved-up snap with her mystery man.

Hayley told how she “made a wish” for a baby boy in her image caption, as she wrote: “I made a wish & I got you my little baby bear is a …….. BOY.

“We can’t wait to do life with you our dream boy !!! xxx.”

Fans were quick to react, with one writing: “Could cry. This is cutest. Use will be the best parents.”

A second put: “Congratulations darling! A little Prince.”

A third then wrote: “I’m so happy for youse both! My heart is soo full congratulations.”

Another simply added: “This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”

The sweet remarks prompted Hayley to reply: “Thank you SOOOOO much everyone!!! so so happy xxxxxx.”

Last month Love Island alumni Hayley, who appeared on the ITV2 reality show in 2018, told fans it is a “dream come true” to be expecting.

She shared a picture of her growing tummy on Instagram and written alongside it: “A dream come true my little baby bear you are all we have ever wanted …”

She also posted a shot of two black and white Polaroids, which she had placed on a sandy beach.

Written on them in the sand were the words: “We’re having a baby. Due Sep 23.”

Hayley has made a conscious effort to keep the identity of her boyfriend out of the public eye.

In early January, she posted a picture of herself cuddling up to him while on holiday in Dubai.

Her mystery man’s face was hidden in the shot but she wrote alongside it: “Another year with you ….happy new year.”

Hayley lasted two weeks in the Love Island villa after initially coupling up with Eyal Brooker.

She then recoupled with Charlie Frederick but was dumped from the island on Day 13.

After leaving the villa, she began dating DJ Tom Zanetti. They split after a seven month romance.
