Who is Cara De La Hoyde? Love Island 2016 winner married to Nathan Massey and mum to son Freddie

CARA De La Hoyde has been in the public eye since shooting to fame in 2016.

And the Love Island winner has now taken the plunge with Nathan Massey, getting married in an exotic wedding three years after winning the reality TV show. Here's all about her.

Who is Cara De La Hoyde?

Cara is a 28-year-old Essex woman who shot to fame after her appearance on Love Island 2016.

Before she appeared in the show, Cara was a glamour model who posed in a series of adult magazines and worked on x-rated channel Studio 66.

The star has always been open about her past, and said: "It was good, I used to enjoy it, I did it for about two years and started when I was 23. When I was younger it was amazing money."

She previously said that she wanted to pursue a career as a midwife before finding her more raunchy profession.

As well as her x-rated money making, she was a circus performer for Cirque Le Soir, and would travel the world performing aerial hoop work and routines involving fire and snakes.

What is Cara and Nathan Massey's love story so far?

Cara was crowned the winner of Love Island 2016 alongside her boyfriend Nathan Massey.

She paired up with Nathan in the first episode and the unshakeable couple stayed together until the end.

They moved in together soon after, and even appeared as guest stars in The Only Way Is Essex.

However, despite being considered the perfect couple by their fans, the pair started having fights.

It eventually forced them to live apart and in April 2017 they called it a day completely in an "amicable split".

At the time Cara was pregnant with Nathan's child.

The pair patched things up in November 2017 and are now proud parents to a baby boy Freddie.

And over a year after welcoming their first child together the pair walked down the aisle.

Are Cara and Nathan married?

Yes! The Love Island lovebirds tied the knot in a secret exotic wedding.

On June 28, 2019, Cara and Nathan exchanged their vows surrounded by family and friends as well as their son Freddie

A spokesman from Cara and Nathan’s management said: "I can confirm that the couple have got married in a beautiful ceremony yesterday. They were surrounded by family and friends and are still elated after their special day."

It's thought Towie's Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou and fellow Love Island stars Scott Thomas and Rykard Jenkins all attended the special day.

Speaking about their wedding plans ahead of the big day, Cara revealed:  “Nathan has been amazing, he has been like a superhero, running around doing everything, doing all the last minute calls.

“I’m a weirdo like that, I don’t like talking on the phone – I’ve always been like that, I don’t know why! So Nathan’s been making the last minute calls.”

She previously revealed that their 19-month-old son Freddie would play a "big part" in their special day.

She said: "Fred will be a big part of it. We’re not sure about other page boys and flower girls as we want it to be quite small and intimate, and we’re allowing everyone to bring their kids anyway."

Cara and Nathan confirmed their engagement two years after winning Love Island together – with Nathan proposing to Cara in the ITV2 villa that they met in.

So today we met the hand we will hold forever ??? so in love my heart could burst ?
