ED! has contacted representatives for Tyla for further comment.

Tyla, who dated Jonny Mitchell when she was on the reality show, became pregnant after only dating Ross for a few months, although the pair had known each other as friends for nine years.

Mummy & Daddy! Wow 🙄 Still doesn't feel like there will be a baby here soon! I look at my belly and I know there is a baby in there, but I can't seem to imagine a real life mini us?! When does that feeling sink in? Anyway, I just have to give this man @rossco188 some credit. He has been amazing, completely there for me the whole time, even if it's to tell me to stop being such a worrier or to tell me off for doing too much cleaning... 😅😂 (He will laugh at that because he cleans more than me) but I can't tell you how excited I am to see him be a father. We both came from broken families and it makes us so much more determined to try and give our baby the best possible start in life. We already love this baby so much and can't wait to meet s/he 💖💙 #baby #pregnancy #couple #mumanddad #newmum #newdad

Opening up about how tough her high-risk pregnancy has been she revealed on Instagram: "Normally baby’s head would be engaging or have already engaged, but because mine is still breech and it’s growing, it’s leaving me no room left to breathe.

"I’m even more uncomfortable than I’ve ever been and all I’ve done the last few days is cry about it and moan. My poor boyfriend."
