Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen are up there with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and Maya Jama and Stormzy as our ultimate couple goals.

After finding love on Love Island in summer 2016 the pair have managed to avoid the curse of most ill-fated reality TV romances and are set to tie the knot later this year.

Chatting to heatworld at the launch of her collab with W7 Cosmetics, Olivia let us in on the secret to her and Alex’s happy relationship. And it’s so adorbs we can’t cope.

“I think we’re quite a chilled pair and what we try to get across – and it always comes out wrong – is how similar me and Alex are,” she explained.

“We always feel weird about it because we don’t understand how we’ve managed to get this sort of relationship. We don’t know anyone like us, we’re two peas in a pod and that’s why we sometimes say, ‘no one’s going to have a love like us’.”

Olivia then went on to reveal her and Alex’s baby plans after their wedding.

“Alex is a really broody person,” she told us.

“I think he just wants a little version of him, to be honest: A mini gym man.”

Who wouldn’t, tbh.

“But we’re really busy and we’ve got so many plans. There’s so much more career wise I’m doing.

“If I had a baby now I’d be so rushed off my feet and I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it the way I want to. So, I think although we are both broody, but we need to wait.”

However, Olivia did reveal there would be a super cute new addition to their family by the end of the year.

“We’re going to get another puppy at Christmas, so we’ll have that baby-like feeling. It’s just a fur baby."
