Love Island star Cara Delahoyde-Massey rushed into early labour after preeclampsia diagnosis
PREGNANT Cara Delahoyde-Massey has been rushed into early labour after her worrying preeclampsia diagnosis.
The Sun can reveal the Love Island star is in hospital preparing to be induced.
She worried fans earlier today with her unexpected hospital dash as she posted snaps on Instagram.
The Love Island champion and husband Nathan Massey said they were spending a "wild Saturday" in hospital – but didn't reveal the baby is on its way.
Cara's rep told The Sun: "Due to the pre eclampsia diagnosis, Cara has been admitted to hospital to be induced early for the safety of her and her baby. Her husband Nathan is with her in hospital at this time."
Some fans worried something was wrong, while others were excited she might be about to give birth.
Posting a snap from her hospital bed with Nathan by her side, the couple wore face masks as they waited to be seen by a doctor.
Cara said: "Wonder how long we're going to be here."
She added: "Wild Saturday for mum & dad."
"How my weekends have changed," joked Nathan.
The couple didn't reveal why Cara was seeing medics in the final stages of her pregnancy.
What is pre-eclampsia?
Pre-eclampsia is a condition that affects pregnant women, usually after the 20-week mark or straight after their baby is delivered.
Early signs include having high blood pressure (hypertension) and protein in their urine (proteinuria).
Mild pre-eclampsia affects up to six per cent of pregnancies, while severe cases develop in up to two per cent.
The exact cause of the condition is currently unknown, but it’s thought to occur when there’s a problem with the placenta.
There are also several factors that increase the chance of developing the condition, including having a family history of it, being over 40 or expecting multiple babies.
One fan asked: "Hoping you and baby girl are ok."
Another wondered: "Hope u and baby are both alright take care lots of love to u and your family."
A fan added: "Hope you and bubba are ok xxxxx keep safe."
Others were excited that this means Cara is going into labour.
One said: "Wishing you and baby girl a safe labor and delivery.! Excited to see the new additionnnnnnnnnnnnnn."
Another added: "Is it happening???"
Cara and Nathan met on the first series of Love Island in 2016, which they went on to win.
They split the following year – just a month before Cara revealed she was pregnant.
They have a two-year-old son, Freddie-George, but are now expecting a baby girl.
They blamed the "pressures of coming off a TV show" for the split, but the pair worked through their problems and were back together by the time they welcomed Freddie in December 2017.
Looking back on their brief time apart, Nathan credits Freddie for bringing them closer together.
At the time he said: "Since we’ve had Fred, I don’t think we’ve argued once – we get on so well now. Having Fred completely changed our relationship for the better."
Cara and Nathan went on to tie the knot in a lavish ceremony in June 2019.
Towie's Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou and fellow Love Island stars Scott Thomas and Rykard Jenkins all attended the special day.
