“It still doesn’t feel real” Chyna, 24, told Hello! as she shared the news of her impending marriage and motherhood.
Neil, 40, popped the question while on holiday with Chyna in Bali recently.
“I’d already planned to ask Chyna to marry me before we knew she was pregnant. Then we found out and I was like: ‘Oh, this is brilliant, everything is coming together,’” Neil told the publication.
Chyna added that it took her a few moments to accept his proposal because she wasn’t sure if it was genuine.
“At first, I thought he was joking because we play jokes on each other all the time,” Chyna laughed.
Chyna also shared the news on her social media with the caption: I feel like I’m dreaming .”
Her fellow Love Island stars raced to congratulate the couple on their exciting news.
“Congratulations ,” commented the show’s runner-up, Gemma Owen.
Deji Adeniyi added: “NO WAY! Congratulations sis.”
“Congratulations to you both , AHH so excited,” added Mollie Salmon.
Neil and Chyna officially started dating in September 2022, while Chyna first caught Neil’s eye when she starred in Love Island last summer.
He is said to have enjoyed watching the ITV2 hit while on the Strictly Come Dancing tour bus.
Neil hinted at how series the romance was when he celebrated Chyna’s birthday with a gushing social media post last November – just three months into their courtship.
He wrote: “Happy Birthday @chymills_ for the short time I’ve known you I have loved every moment, those LI boys losses are definitely my gain and I can’t wait for the world to see what you can do. I know you are having the greatest day because I organised it love you.”
