‘Things are definitely moving forward’: Pregnant Shaughna Phillips reveals she spent the night in hospital while awaiting the birth of her first child
Pregnant Shaughna Phillips has revealed that she was recently hospitalized ten days before her due date.
The 28-year-old Love Island star is expecting her first child, and in an Instagram update on Wednesday revealed that “things are definitely moving forward.”
Shaughna shared a close-up photo of her tummy, as she explained why she’s been absent from social media recently.
“I haven’t updated everyone because things were up in the air and I didn’t know what was going on,” he told his followers.

Her due date is drawing near: The Love Island star, 28, is expecting her first baby, and in an Instagram update on Wednesday she revealed that “things are definitely moving forward.”
“I spent the night in the hospital on Friday thinking I was going to be induced, but luckily it wasn’t necessary and I was able to come home and rest,” Shaughna continued.
He added that he had had two sweeps since Sunday ‘and things are definitely moving along very well! 10 days until my due date so let’s see if I can last.’
A sweep involves an internal exam by a midwife or doctor to separate the membranes of the amniotic sac that surrounds the baby from the cervix.
This separation releases hormones that can start labor.
Shaughna added that she had also been concerned by the thought that she had another stretch mark on the bump, “but it turns out it was an imprint from my blanket.”
The Love Island star, 28, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Billy Webb, 29, who was recently accused of drug offences, and now facing the possibility of giving birth alone.
Billy could face up to 16 years in prison if convicted after police arrested the real estate agent in a drug raid last month.
The Sun reported that police allegedly recovered cocaine and MDMA before a follow-up search at a nearby address revealed a large quantity of illicit substances.
Billy was then charged with one count of possession with intent to supply a Schedule A drug and one count of being involved in the supply of controlled drugs.
Earlier this month, Shaughna broke her silence after Billy was charged with drug offences.
She said OK! Magazine: ‘After a few challenging weeks, obviously the baby’s father is gone.
“But my main goal has always been to prepare for the birth and try to be as calm as possible. I’m good at just saying, “Okay, the show must go on.”
She added: ‘Billy’s not around, but I don’t want to say I’m doing it alone, because I absolutely am not, my family is amazing.
“It’s going to be different, but I don’t want to say it’s going to be bad.”
Shaughna, who has kept her boyfriend off social media to protect his privacy, stated last month that she “had no knowledge of any activity related to the allegations against Billy.”
