Olivia and Alex Bowen have shared a sweet video of the moments they told their family and friends they are expecting their first child.

“We could not be more thankful, grateful & appreciative of every single one of your messages. I am reading through them all again & again wondering how we got so lucky to be so loved & cared for by so many people. It’s just so much more than we could ever of expected.”
“We managed to film so many of our friends & families reactions over time & every time I cried & felt so bloody happy to be able to share this news with our favourite people in the world. We love them so much for keeping our secret for so long, I know it was difficult haha!”
In the video, the couple’s friends, parents, grandparents and other loved ones are seen congratulating the couple on their pregnancy, with some almost moved to tears.
Olivia added: “I cannot watch this without crying! My most emotional video ever, I had to share with you all tonight this part of the journey, it helps me show you how much this means to us & our loved ones. When I thought of telling our closest, it always made me well up, it was something I couldn’t wait to do, so having it all caught on camera for us to relive again & again is like an instant serotonin boost.
"It was the most magical feeling seeing all of our most cherished faces light up at the news of our Baby Bowen”
