Pregnant Laura Anderson showed off her blossoming baby bump in a light blue gown as she arrived at the The Gossies 2023 in Dublin, Ireland on Sunday night.
The former Love Island contestant, 33, is expecting her first child with actor Gary Lucy, 41, after first meeting on Celebs Go Dating.
And for her glamorous appearance at the awards she accentuated her changing shape and cradled her bump as she posed up a storm in the snaps.
She stood out from the crowd in the bright blue number which featured a pretty off-the-shoulder design, long statement sleeves and was teamed with sparkly shoes.
Laura accessorised perfectly with a matching headband, earring and wore her long blonde tresses in perfectly styled waves.

She opted for a typically glamorous makeup look and beamed for the cameras while working her best angles for the snaps.
Her appearance comes after she took a swipe at society’s gender norms on Friday as she let out her frustration via Instagram Stories.
The beauty questioned why women are treated differently than men are when they say they’d like children.
Claiming that females are branded ‘desperate’ and ‘needy’ when they want children, she compared this to the ‘loving’ and ‘caring’ label that men are given when they say the same thing.
Currently expecting her first child with actor Gary, the reality star has been documenting the pregnancy by sharing updates with her 1.5M followers.
She and the Hollyoaks star, who met while filming Celebs Go Dating last year, are no longer together and have been posting a string of cryptic remarks via their respective social media accounts.
Sharing her thoughts over a selfie while on the train to a hair appointment, Laura wrote: ‘I’ve just been thinking.
‘Why is it in society that when a man says he wants children he’s seen as brave, courageous, loving. But when women say they want children they’re seen as desperate, needy, users.’

Following the post, she then headed to get her hair done form some pre-motherhood pampering.
Despite not revealing where the gender difference had come from, and whether it was to do with herself and ex Gary – Laura has recently hinted to fans that she and her ex are not on good terms.
Last week, she shared a video talking about the signs to look out for in a covert narcissist.
Seemingly throwing shade at Gary, she wrote: ‘I’m really healing through educating myself on this personality disorder an reading all your dms of your experiences.
‘If someone lies about you, tell the truth about them or better yet choose peace and run.’
The star, who met Gary on Celebs Go Dating, announced she was pregnant with his child earlier this month, and it was later revealed the pair had split.
It comes after Laura shut down any suggestion of her reconciling with Gary in an Instagram Q&A.
When a curious fan asked her: ‘Is there any chance that you and Gary can get back together?’.
Laura simply replied: ‘No’ before saying she ‘hopes once baby is here’ that she and the Hollyoaks actor can co-parent successfully.
This week, the pair appeared to take aim at each other in cryptic Instagram posts after Gary said that part of the reason the pair split was down to location.
Laura reportedly wanted him to move to Scotland, but he said he wanted to stay in Essex to be with his four children.
But this week, Laura told her side of the story and told her 1.5 million followers: ‘I had no intention to comment on the breakdown of my relationship with Gary.
‘However, due to what has now been publicly shared by other parties, I have been left with no other choice.
‘Gary and I are no longer together due to multiple reasons which will remain private. Our plan was for me to move to Essex to start our family which I was more than happy to do.
‘However, since the breakdown of our relationship I have remained at home in Scotland. My priority is bringing my baby up in a calm and stable environment.
The Scottish reality star added: ‘I never asked or expected Gary to move to Scotland. I fully support him living in Essex to be close to his four amazing children.
‘I am fully focused on having a healthy, happy pregnancy and remain excited to share this incredible journey with you all. Thank you so much for you support! Laura, Buddy & Bump.’
Gary shared a cryptic message one day after his pregnant ex-girlfriend Laura made a thinly-veiled dig at him after their shock split.
Laura took a swipe at her ex by saying she had chosen ‘peace over people’ and edited her pregnancy announcement to remove any mention of Gary’s surname.
And on Monday, Gary appeared to retaliate as he took to his Instagram Stories to share a very cryptic post hitting out at people who ‘look for faults in others’.
He shared a quote which read: ‘People that spend time looking for faults in others, should spend time correcting their own.’
Captioning the post, he added: ‘Amen to that.’

His cryptic message seemed to be in response to Laura’s thinly-veiled swipe, which she shared to her Instagram just hours earlier.
Posting to her Instagram Stories, the former Love Island star shared a quote, which read: ‘I’ve been choosing peace over people lately. So far no regrets.’
She also edited her pregnancy announcement post to remove any mention of Gary’s name, while also turning off the comments, hinting that their unborn baby will now take her surname.
Their video reveal was originally captioned: ‘Our hearts are full Baby Lucy due ‘Summer 23,’ but has been changed to: ‘My heart is full. Baby Anderson due Summer ’23.’
