Olivia Bowen says she's 'terrified' to post her baby online

OLIVIA Bowen is an Instagram darling – but this might not be the case for her firstborn.

The former Love Island star, 28, is expecting her first child with husband Alex Bowen, 30.

The pair used social media to break their happy baby news over the New Year, as well as to document Olivia's pregnancy cravings and nursery design.

Yet social media has also seen Olivia face flack for posing in her underwear – in a clear example of mum-shaming from trolls.

This, and the "terrifying" nature of anonymous social media users, has led the influencer to think twice about sharing special moments when the tot arrives.

She told OK! Magazine: "I really want to give our baby as much privacy in the first few months, but I know we’re going to be the proudest parents and will want to share the next step of parenthood with everyone.

"It does terrify me how many scary people are out there though.

"We’ll just see how we feel in time."

Alex added: "We just don’t know how we’re going to feel until the baby comes, so for now we’re trying not to think about that and just want to enjoy every moment."

Addressing living life in the public eye, Olivia added: "I know that having a baby I'm going to be judged for whatever I do.

I’ve seen so many parents being judged for silly things like giving their baby a dummy or not.

"I think I will be a little more nervous than usual to post things when the baby is here for this reason."

The ITV2 star, who has suffered with an under active thyroid since the age of 10, previously showed her bruises as she opened up about her changes during pregnancy.

Yet she also appealed to fans about her changing weight as her trimesters progress.

Olivia and Alex revealed their happy news in January.

Alex posted a picture featuring baby-related Polaroids and added: "This year we get to meet Baby Bowen."

One shot saw Alex kissing Olivia's growing baby bump, while another saw the couple posing with a pair of baby boots.
