The baby’s challenge created chaos in the Love Island Villa
Before an elimination round on The Island of Love UK, each couple’s parenting skills were tested. The ladies of the house woke up to the cries of five fake babies. They had to take care of the babies with their partners.
Each couple named their babies. Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page named their baby Leo; Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope named their Sienna Funke Hope. Davide and Ekin-Su named their baby Irenee; Paige Thorne and Adam decided to name their baby Sage, and Gemma Owen and Luca Bish settled on Rodge, which was Gemma’s sister’s nickname.
The task became difficult for the boys when the girls left them behind and came out of the villa for brunch after receiving a text message.
However, the dads did their best to keep their babies happy with Davide putting lipstick and blushing on his daughter, knowing that “Ekin-Su is going to kill him” for putting makeup on their daughter. The islanders then dressed their babies for the the island of love baby disco.
Everyone played a game of pass-the-package, with Dami and Indiyah adjudicating the baby day winners. Finally the babies were put to sleep with Ekin-Su singing Twinkling twinkle star to the little ones.
