Finding love in paradise! Since the U.K.’s Love Island originally debuted in 2002there have been several couples that have stood the test of time since appearing on the reality series.
Love Island follows a group of people every season that are isolated in a villa, while having to pair off in order to stay on the show.
Season 2 contestants face de la hoyde and Nathan Massey not only walked away winners, they also left Spain in a relationship.
“The first thing she said to me when I walked in, she said, ‘I’m gonna stick with you to the rest of the show’ and that she did,” Nathan said during a July 2016 interview on the U.K.’s Lorraine. “We’re just gonna see where it goes. Listen, we’re gonna be together, no doubt about that, so whatever comes up, we’ll discuss it together. We’re a team now, you know what I mean?”
After one year of dating, the pair announced they were expecting their first child. Son Freddie arrived in 2017, shortly before they called it quits on their relationship. While coparenting their baby boy, Nathan and Cara eventually reconciled and tied the knot in 2019.
Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague were another reality TV match that left Love Island and headed towards their happily ever after following their appearance on season 5.
“I do believe we’re soulmates,” Molly-Mae gushed to Cosmopolitan UK in June 2021. “My parents love him. We’re cringey and mushy, and I like it like that. We know we’re going to be together forever. People speculate that we break up all the time — if Tommy doesn’t like one of my pictures on Instagram, I get DMs asking about it. But we’re so content, like two peas in a pod.”
After several years of dating, the pair bought their first home together in Manchester, England. They later brought their first child, daughter Bambi, home there after her January 2023 birth.
