Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey found love on the hit ITV show Love Island back in 2016. They've now taken their relationship to the next level, after returning to the villa they lived in and he proposed!
Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey won Love Island back in 2016 and their relationship has continued to go from strength to strength.
In a romantic gesture Nathan planned a holiday back to the villa he and Cara first met and set the engagement up perfectly by the pool.
The couple confirmed their happy news in an interview with OK! Magazine. Opening up about how he planned the engagement Nathan revealed: ‘I brought her back to where we met and took her on a little treasure hunt around the villa to different places which meant something to us.
‘Finally, I blindfolded her, led her to the pool and got down on one knee.’
Cara gushed: ‘It was so romantic.’
Nathan was able to make sure he got the perfect ring for Cara as he had been planning the whole engagement for a few months. Earlier this year Cara was spotted trying on engagement rings in Trésor Paris in Hatton Garden and joked to the press at the time that she was dropping Nathan hints.
However, he already had the steps in motion and actually got the jewellers to quiz his fiancé-to-be on the type of ring she would like.
Nathan explained: ‘It’s Asscher cut, two carats and I went to Trésor Paris in Hatton Garden. Cara had visited there with her mum a few months earlier and they knew I was going to do it, so they’d asked Cara about her perfect ring.’
Although the couple have decided they want to get married they are yet undecided on where. Cara would like to tie the knot in Portugal but Nathan is keen to stay in England so that their elderly grandparents can attend.
The couple are parents to a son, seven-month-old Freddie-George and have come a long way since they announced they were expecting a child together.
Nathan and Cara initially split up when they announced the news but re-kindled their romance shortly before Freddie-George’s birth.
Speaking about their journey Cara said: ‘It got to a point where we loved each other but we just weren’t happy, and then when I fell pregnant we made that conscious decision that it’s not right to be together at the moment, but if it’s meant to be, then it will work. We didn’t think we would get back together, but we did.’
Congratulations to Cara and Nathan!
