Love Island’s Malia Arkian announces she’s engaged and pregnant with first child

Love Island 's Malia Arkian has announced she's engaged and pregnant with her first child.

The happy news comes amid claims she was ejected from the villa in 2016 after punching Kady McDermott in the nose and making her bleed.

Malia is engaged to Bradford City footballer Hope Akpan, and the couple are expecting a baby together.

He announced the news by sharing a snap of her posing up in a bikini and cradling her bump in her hands.

Expanding on the happy news, she told Mail Online she's four months pregnant, and expecting a baby girl.

The announcement comes after Kady claimed Malia was thrown out of the villa after being violent towards her.

But she's hit back, telling the site: "Kady is a compulsive liar."

Malia was thrown out of the villa during the second series of the show in 2016 just hours after she went in.

She became embroiled in a row with Kady over some spilled wine and Kady's now ex-boyfriend Scott Thomas.

The argument came up again last year and the feud was reignited once more today, when Kady took to Twitter to say: "She punched me in the nose after and gave me a nose bleed but they didn’t show it as too graphic."

A Love Island spokesperson said at the time: "Following an altercation last night, one of the contestants on Love Island, Malia, has been taken out of the villa."

Just hours after Kady's claims, Sherif Lanre was removed from the villa after breaking a mystery rule.

He apologised for his "silly mistake" and left the show after being called to the Beach Hut for a chat with producers.
