A couple who met on TV dating show First Dates have revealed that they are expecting their first baby.

Ibiba Mudada and Aarron Stewart were paired up on the Channel 4 show in June and have been in a relationship since after falling for each other within three dates.

"I was trying to keep it cool but I fancied him so much. I loved his long eyelashes and really genuine smile" said Ibiba, the Sunday Mirror reports.

"Things got serious after the third date. Everything was quite intense. Then we went bowling and he met one of my best friends, who told me, 'He's a good 'un!'"

"When I found out I was pregnant I wasn't sure how he'd react. It was so soon. We were getting into bed and I said, 'There's a baby in my belly - what's going on?' but he seemed really happy."

During their first date, Ibiba and Aarron learned that they lived two minutes away from each other in Bristol and that Ibiba's mother and Aarron's father had worked together for 10 years.

"I never expected to find love, let alone have a kid," said Aarron.

"It's absolutely nuts - but I'm so happy."

The couple plan to move in together and have spoken about marriage ahead of the baby's arrival in April.

Watch First Dates on Channel 4 at 10pm on Monday 31 October.
