Hayley is pregnant with her first child
Former DOI contestant Hayley found love with her partner Adrian two years ago, after splitting from Joe Tracini. As well as dating former Hollyoaks star Joe – who is the son of comedian Joe Pasquale – she's also been romantically linked to comedian Marcus Bridgstocke. During her relationship with Marcus, Hayley revealed she wanted to have children in the future. "I'm a very happy girl at the moment. I'm doing everything that I love to do. My family are very proud of me," she previously told The Mirror. "My body feels 37 but I still feel 21. I sometimes forget that I'm going to be 40. It would be lovely to have kids in the future but for now my main concentration is my work."
