Move over Bambi Fury, there’s a new Love Island baby in town. Well, kinda…

Three years on from her stint in the villa, Love Island 2021 bombshell Mary Bedford has welcomed a son and he’s adorable.

Don’t worry, you haven’t missed the reality star growing a baby bump over the past nine months. Mary’s new addition is actually her super cute puppy, Ralphy.

Mary introduced Ralphy to the world on Instagram last week when she shared a video of herself and her pet pooch with the caption, “Everyone meet my son, Ralphy Bedford 🤍.”

The Islander’s friends and followers immediately flooded the comments section to gush over the Cavapoo pup, with the likes of Molly-Mae Hague, Chloe Burrows and Millie Court all sharing their thoughts.

“Omg no bring to Essex right now,” Chloe commented, while Molly-Mae added, “😭😭😭 too cute.”

Then there’s Millie, who spoke for all of us when she wrote, “AWWWWWW.”

And it seems Mary is already taking to life as a dog mum as she shared a picture of herself cuddling up to Ralphy after partying at the BRIT Awards this weekend.

“Now back home with my sleepy boy ❤️,” she captioned the Instagram story post.

If you’re wondering what else Mary’s been up to since leaving the Love Island villa, she launched a podcast called The Blonde Diaries with her bestie – and Love Island 2018 contestant – Ellie Brown last year.

Mary also sparked rumours she was romantically involved with Scott Thomas when they cosied up for an Instagram snap at a Stormzy concert back in 2022, sending fans wild.

It was later reported that Mary and Scott, who rose to fame on Love Island 2016, were very much an item but keen to keep their relationship out of the public eye, although she dismissed the claims as “hilarious” and “not true”.
