Luke Packham, aka one half of The Block twins Josh and Luke, has announced that he and his fiancée Olivia are expecting their first child together.

The 27-year-old former Love Island star and his lawyer partner revealed to Woman’s Day that they are expecting a baby girl in March next year.

“It wasn’t planned but we always said, ‘If it happens, it happens,’ and that’s how we’ve approached the situation,” Olivia told the publication. “But we were both stoked when we found out. It was such a happy time.”

After getting engaged in October last year, the couple admitted they had originally planned on tying the knot in late 2021.

“We were looking at a few wedding venues, but then the pandemic and The Block happened, so we put it on hold, and shortly after that Olivia was pregnant!” Luke explained.

The pair also detailed their plans to add to their family in the future, with Luke saying he would “definitely” like to have up to three children.

Meanwhile, his brother Josh told the publication that he is “really looking forward” to being an uncle.

“I’m going to spoil her! I don't think I’ll be a dad any time soon, so it’ll be a bit like trial and error for me,” he said.

Luke and Olivia went public with their relationship in December 2019 after he posted a selfie of them kissing on Instagram shortly after appearing on Love Island.

“If your God is money, you will always be poor; But if your God is love, you will always be rich,” he captioned the loved-up snap.

Ten months later, the pair announced their engagement on Instagram with another kissing photo showing off Olivia’s ring.

“Took this girl diving today and popped the question at the bottom of the ocean! Was a moment I will remember forever,” Luke wrote.

A number of Luke’s followers took to the comments on his latest post to congratulate him and Olivia on the baby news, including several former reality TV stars.

“Congrats brother!” Love Island’s Matt Zukowski said, with Adam Farrugia adding, “You beauty”.

“Greatest news ever! We’re so incredibly happy for you,” The Block’s Sarah and George replied, followed by the 2019 winners Tess and Luke who said it was “amazing news”.
