For the last few years, Love Island has become a favorite of reality TV and binge-watchers around the world. The dating show, which features series in the United Kingdom, United States, and across the globe, kicked off with its first season in 2015 and slowly, but surely, earned a ton of fans and a major audience following. In July 2019, Love Island USA began on CBS, proving that the Love Island effect was alive and well.

But when it comes to some of the most famous contestants and their equally established romantic partners, some fans might need a refresher on how they met, if they stayed together, and where they are today. Of course, there have been plenty couple-casualties that weren’t meant to last and weren’t particularly each other’s type on paper. However, there have been some major success stories from the series that started it all! So, let’s take a look back at some of the most famous Love Island couples who stayed together after their time on the show!

Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde were a major success story for the 2016 season of Love Island. The two got together as soon as they set eyes on each other and remained a strong couple throughout the second season of the U.K. series. After winning the series on day 45, the couple remained together and welcome their first child, son Freddie-George, in 2017! Nathan and Cara did, however, hit a rough patch and nearly split, but they were able to work through their troubles and sustained their loving relationship. In July 2019, Nathan and Cara officially tied the knot and had even more to celebrate the following year. In 2020, the couple welcomed a baby girl together and have been living on cloud nine ever since!

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury may have had a bit of an up and down start to their romance, but their love has proven to take them the distance! The couple was the runner-up on season five of Love Island in 2019. Molly-Mae was not initially at the villa on day one, but she finally made her entrance on day four. Although Tommy was one of the first guys to introduce himself to Molly-Mae, she chose to go on a date with Curtis Pritchard before finally coupling up with Tommy on day five. From there on, the two stayed together the entirety of the series. Today, the couple is as strong as ever, and they welcomed their first child in January 2023. Later that year, they got engaged.

Jamie Jewitt & Camilla Thurlow

Jamie Jewitt and Camilla Thurlow appeared on season three of Love Island and got caught-up in their romance fairly late in the season. Jamie wasn’t even in the villa until day 34! By that point, Camilla had tried coupling up with different contestants, but nothing stuck until Jamie came along. The couple was announced as the runners up on day 52 of the season and maintained their romance long after the show concluded. On October 27, 2020, Camilla gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Nell Sophia Jewitt! Their respective Instagram pages are now chock-full of sweet family photos and the couple is wholly embracing parenthood! In May 2022, they welcomed their second daughter, Nora, followed by their son, Brodie, in May 2024.

Alex Bowen & Olivia Buckland

Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland‘s relationship was also late to start on season two of Love Island. The twosome didn’t get together until day 20 on the show, but their love proved to be everlasting. Alex and Olivia went on to be the season’s runners up and stayed together once the cameras stopped rolling. Roughly two years after they met on the show, Olivia and Alex exchanged their ‘I dos’ in September 2018 and have been posting about their love ever since! In 2022, they welcomed their first child together: Abel Jacob.

Jess Shears and Dom Lever‘s romance took some time to come together, as well. The two starred on season three of Love Island and were coupled up for some time, before they left the villa on days 20 and 28. After the show, however, the two reconnected. Dom and Jess got married (officially) in October 2018 and welcomed their baby roughly one year later in October 2019! Since then, they’ve welcomed two children together.
