Love Island star Jack Fincham announces surprise baby news with ‘great friend’

Former Love Island contestant Jack Fincham has made the surprise announcement that he is now the father of a baby girl.

The 28-year-old, who won the 2018 series of Love Island with his now ex-girlfriend Dani Dyer, revealed the news on Instagram on Saturday morning.

He said that while he is not in a relationship with the baby’s mother, she is a “great friend” of his, and that they have named their baby daughter Blossom.

Fincham, who split from Dyer nine months ago in April 2019, added that the mother was “amazing” during the pregnancy.

Alongside a picture of him cradling his newborn daughter, he said that while he is normally a “very open book” who shares his life on social media, he chose not to reveal his news before the birth.

“I’m just a normal geeza [sic], who went on a TV show, which throws you straight into the public eye… which I will forever be grateful for,” he said.

“However I knew for myself I needed personal time and to keep this part of my life private to prepare for this new responsibility and part of me that will change my life forever.”

I’m normally a very open book and share most of my life on my social media. This blessing I chose not to. I’m just a normal geeza, who went on a tv show, which throws you straight into the public eye…which I will forever be grateful for. However I knew for myself I needed personal time and to keep this part of my life private to prepare for this new responsibility and part of me that will change my life forever. This is undoubtedly the best thing that has ever happened to me and it’s true what they say, the instant feeling of love and connection you have with your child is a feeling like no other. I want to thank my family and friends for your continued support, also to my little girls mother, who has been totally AMAZING throughout. Although we are not together we are great friends as we have been for many years and our priority is co-parenting our beautiful baby girl. Both mum and baby are doing great. I am now a proud dad to a healthy baby girl Blossom Fincham born 8lb 2oz on 24th January 2020

Another co-star, Adam Collard, wrote: “Mate we love you, best guy ever and excited for this next chapter.”

Fincham entered Love Island as one of the initial contestants in 2018 and “coupled up” with Dyer, daughter of EastEnders actor Danny Dyer, right at the start of the series.

They went on to win the show and the £50,000 prize, but split up after moving in together.
