Former Love Islander, Olivia Bowen, who rose to fame after appearing on the ITV2 show back in 2016, announced that she was expecting her first baby with her husband and fellow Love Island contestant, Alex Bowen, back in January. Olivia has been sharing every step of her pregnancy journey since, and the next step in Olivia's pregnancy journey is revealing the transformation of the nursery for her little bundle of joy.
Since the couple has opted to not find out the sex of their baby, the nursery has a gender-neutral design. Olivia has worked closely with the brand The Modern Nursery to bring her jungle-themed baby room to life. It has a soft colour palette and features tonal, rattan-style furniture.

Olivia Bowen on pregnancy, her fears around childbirth and nursery planning
In a chat previously with Mother&Baby, Olivia said, “We're not finding out the gender because so many of my friends have been like it's the best surprise and we don't have many surprises in life anymore so I think it will be fun to try and wait it out. So the nursery itself is going to be quite neutral.
“We've gone for a safari theme which will be really cool with giraffes, elephants and all sorts. It's really fun because I think you can go a bit more wild with a nursery. I've got quite a muted taste in the house, but in the kids room, you can kind of go a bit mad, which is really fun. We've been working with the modern nursery to help us design it and they’re a great one to follow if anyone else is trying to plan a nursery.”
