Love Is Blind star Shaina Hurley is expecting her first child with her husband Christos Lardakis.

The reality star shared the exciting news with People this week, confirming she and Christos are expecting just over a year after they tied the knot.

"We feel so thankful and grateful that we have been given such a blessing. Our hearts are full," they said in a joint statement.

"We cannot wait to start this next journey of parenthood together and to meet this little soul!"

Shaina also posted on social media that she was "proud to announce" that "Baby Lardakis [is] coming soon".

The expectant mum received warm congratulations from fellow Love Is Blind stars, including season 4's Kwame Appiah and Bliss Poureetezadi.

Shaina featured in the second season of Netflix's Love Is Blind, where she was involved in a 'will they/won't they' romance with Shayne Jansen after splitting with co-star Kyle Abrams.

Her flirting with Shayne during his engagement to Natalie Lee caused controversy when the show was released, but Shaina insisted at the reunion that she'd moved on with a new relationship.

Shaina announced she'd got engaged only a few weeks after the show premiered in 2022, and she and Christos went on to tie the knot in Vouliagmeni, Greece, later that summer.

Netflix has also confirmed a UK spin-off of Love Is Blind, with former Big Brother host Emma Willis set to present with her husband Matt Willis.

Love Is Blind is available to stream internationally on Netflix.
