She may be the host of Love Island, but Laura Whitmore’ s own love journey has been far from idyllic.
Viewers are calling voice of Love island, Iain and host, Laura’s relationship, the real couple goals of Love Island as they team up to present the love and loss in the villa.
‘Scared of boys’ in her teens, Laura was then constantly heartbroken by numerous rockers such as Paulo Nutini and Miles Kane before she chose comic Iain Stirling to settle down with.
Iain, 31, and Laura, 36, now have a baby and a home in North London.
Friends claim Laura has never been happier, saying: “The guys of the past weren’t as fun or silly as Laura is deep down," a pal close to the presenter told Sun Online.

"These guys were tortured artists and wanted to do the whole indie thing at that time, moody, cool, long hair and hats. Whereas that’s only one side to Laura – she’s got way more going for her.”
Laura went to an all-girls school in Bray, County Wicklow, but said boys “weren’t interested in chasing me,” in an interview withHot Pressin 2012.
She lost her virginity age 19, as a journalism student at Dublin City University.
“It was in a shi**y little bed in my student accommodation in DCU,” she revealed. “Classy!”
In 2008, Laura got her big break beating 3,000 applicants on Pick Me MTV to win an MTV presenter job.
Fresh to London age 23, by 2010 she was dating Britain’s hottest male model, David Gandy.
While working at MTV, she met The Coronas frontman Danny O’Reilly, a huge star in her homeland.
“He's my best friend,” she told the Belfast Telegraph in 2012, “He gets me. I'm a crazy little girl. He gets my lifestyle and gets things that I do. He understands me. I'm quirky.”
When Laura flew off to Australia to film ‘I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here Now!’, in 2012, he ended the relationship.
Laura said: “My break-up was really, really hard. And I went through that massive break-up when I was doing live TV every day, on the other side of the world.
She was so stressed she had her mum fly over and her dad rang to tell her she had lost a lot of weight.
Laura then dated the Last Puppets frontman Miles Kane, as they attended a Groucho party together.
That night she tweeted: “When did life get so fun!:) everything happens for a reason x.”
The romance didn’t last long, however, and in February 2014 she dated Scottish singer Paolo Nutini.
Many thought her and 19-year-old Niall Horan, One Direction star were an item but both insisted they were just friends.
In 2015, Laura was dating Sunset Sons singer, Rory Williams but at the 2016 BAFTAS, Laura was partying with well-known womaniser Leonardo DiCaprio.
"Leonardo was completely taken by Laura. She was playing it cool but he made a beeline for her," an insider told The Sun.
Laura went to the star's hotel suite and a partygoer reported: “He was all over Laura until after 5am.”
A month later, Laura and Rory split but the musician had claimed the romance was already over.
Laura and Bodyguard actor Richard Madden dated in 2016, but their busy schedules got in the way and sadly: “They ended up hardly seeing other.”
By February 2016, Laura said: “[I want someone] who can make me laugh and with whom I can have fun.
“I love banter so someone who can keep me on my toes. I don’t mind having a few arguments.”
When mutual friend Ore Odube introduced her to comic Iain Stirling in 2017, it was fate.
"When she met Iain it was totally different, he wasn’t like anyone she dated before, and that felt fun and exciting and safe too.”
The voice of Love Island since 2015, Iain almost blew it with their awkward first date at a comedy gig, Laura revealed on This Morning.
The cute couple went ‘official’ in August 2017 as Laura told Fabulous: “We’d been together for four or five months before we put anything on our social media.
"At that point we were both like, 'Should we just own it?'"
Now they spend time together at work, as Laura is this years host.
Surely, Laura and Iain are the ultimate Love Island love story.
