Pregnant Laura Anderson shows off her bump in a silver mini-dress after revealing ex Gary Lucy is ‘in two minds’ about attending the birth of their baby
Laura Anderson looked radiant as she shared new images from a charity event on Monday – hours after revealing her ex-boyfriend Gary Lucy is still in ‘two minds’ about attending the birth of their child.
The former Love Island star, 34, showed off her baby bump in a silver bodycon mini-dress with a lilac oversized blazer draped across her shoulders while posing at the Doubletree by Hilton Glasgow Central.
The mother-to-be looked stunning as she cradled her tummy while in attendance at the event to support other single parents in Scotland as part of her charity Women In Charge movement.
Laura paired her outfit with a sequin heart-shaped clutch and matching silver diamante heels.
The reality star went for a full glam makeup look with her blonde locks in a straight style, and accessorised with pink statement earrings.

Laura has used her platform throughout her pregnancy to support single mothers who might be feeling alone.
The star posed naked on Instagram showing off her bump at the start of her pregnancy and revealed how incredible the female body is.
She captioned her post: ‘The female body is an incredible capsule, one I’ll never quite get my head around.
‘I’ve never felt so empowered physically and mentally. Some days of course can be tricky to feel my best (pregnant or not) but I find doing a little thing just for me can really boost my confidence and put a spring in my step.’
The blonde bombshell wore her long locks down, showing off her impressive tattoos as she smiled for the camera.
Laura and Gary split shortly after they announced their pregnancy in February and have said they are determined to keep things civil for the sake of their child.
The Hollyoaks actor, 41, alleged that the reason the couple had gone their separate ways was due to the fact he wouldn’t move to her native Scotland as he has four kids with his ex-wife Natasha Gray – something which Laura denied.
Now 27 weeks pregnant, Laura told OK!: ‘He’s currently in two minds [about attending birth] so I’ve asked my mum as well, as you are allowed two birthing partners.’

‘There are a lot of emotions going around for everyone, so it’s difficult. Being able to be civil from now until the birth and then after is the goal.’
Earlier this month, she appeared to reference their ongoing drama with a brand new post, which referenced how to treat women.
The quote read: ‘A woman becomes a reflection of how you treat her. If you don’t like how she’s acting look at how you are treating her.’
Her chat with the publication comes after Laura excitedly shared photos of her baby girl from her 4D ultrasound. The reality star shared an up close picture of her bundle of joy to her 1.5million Instagram followers as well.
She wrote: ‘Swipe for a sleepy 4D bub. Thanks to @bumptobabyscotland for my amazing scan and heartbeat.
‘Gayle and the team have created such a personalised and special experience every time I can’t thank you enough. Ps she doesn’t have my nose #gutted.’
The pair met on the famous TV show Celeb’s Go dating in October last year but split in February 2023.
Following a whirlwind romance, the couple announced that they were expecting a child together, but news emerged of the split shortly after.
Shortly after their split, Laura received a lot of hate on social media and told her followers she would instantly block anyone who said anything negative about her pregnancy, adding that she is not a ‘victim even in my vulnerable state’.
She wrote: ‘If anyone writes anything negative on my page re my pregnancy you will be blocked.
‘Nobody on here except my friends and family knows the reality regarding the past few months of my life because I don’t comment on press articles or give details of any other party.’
