Every single person who has ever watched Love Island was in shock when a Love Island 2022 bombshell announced the birth of their child back in April.

If we had to put money on a contestant from series eight declaring they'd just become a parent, we certainly wouldn't have hedged our bets on Jack Keating and yet here we are.

Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Cülcülolu would be the obvious choice seeing as they won the show, moved in together and are still going strong, but nope, Jack is now officially a dad - which makes Ronan Keating the hottest gramps around.

The Casa Amor bombshell posted a super adorbs pic of him with his baby girl when she was first born and now the name for his daughter has been revealed and it's next level cute.

It turns out Jack and his baby mama have decided to name their child Maya Ann and is this a cheeky little nod to Maya Jama?

Baby Maya's mum did a Q&A on her Instagram Story and one follower asked whether the baby would be taking her name or Jack's.

"Her name is Maya Ann Keating. Ann was my Mum's name she watches Maya from heaven".

We told you it was cute.

When the Islander shared the black and white pic of him holding his new baby girl after her birth his villa-mates filled the comments section with love.

Luca Bish wrote, "Congratulations brother ," while Danica Taylor commented, "Congratulations babes!!!!"

As much as friends and fans love that Jack is joining the world of parenthood others are confused by the revelation with one writing, "Woah have I missed something ," and another adding, "I MISSED A WHOLE BOOK- Congratulations Jack!"
