Strictlys Neil Jones and Love Islands Chynas romance timeline amid baby news04/16/2023
Chyna Mills may not have found romance in the Love Island villa, but she did find the man of her dreams in Strictly Come Dancing star Neil Jones, within mere weeks of leaving the show.
Now, eight months on, the couple have announced the exciting news that they are engaged – and in a double whammy of good news, are also expecting their first child together!
Taking to social media to reveal their baby joy, Chyna said she "feels like I'm dreaming", as Neil penned on Instagram: "Excitement is an understatement”.
Neil had originally intended to propose to Chyna earlier this year, but their baby joy soon helped "everything come together”.
But how exactly did the couple meet? Here, OK! takes a look at their relationship timeline…
Cheeky DM message
Love Island bombshell Chyna Mills first attracted the attention of Strictly Come Dancing pro Neil Jones when he was watching the show while on the Strictly Presents: Keeeep Dancing! tour.
Alongside his pals former Strictly contestant Rhys Stephenson and fellow professional Jowita Przystal, the trio would excitedly sit down to watch the show night after night and were hooked on the latest developments.
After she was dumped from the villa, Neil reached out to Chyna on Instagram, and the pair later met up in person for the first time, while attending the same party.
Hitting it off, the couple began dating, after realising they had plenty of chemistry and common interests.
Initially the couple kept things fairly lowkey when they started dating in August 2022, however just weeks later, after some speculation from fans, Neil and Chyna finally went public with their romance by attending the Guardians of the Galaxy experience in London together.
The pair were also spotted enjoying a romantic getaway to the city of love, Paris, where they walked hand in hand down the picturesque streets of the French capital.
After sharing their romance with the world, a number of other public appearances followed, including at The People’s Pet Awards, where the pair cheekily ruled out the chance of Chyna appearing on Strictly anytime soon, by declaring the Love Islander would need to “learn to dance first!”
Two months after going public, the couple began to pack on the PDA, with Neil even thanking Chyna’s former costars for “ignoring” her on the show!
In a smitten post to mark her birthday, Neil wrote: “Happy Birthday @chymills_ for the short time I’ve known you I have loved every moment, those LI boys losses are definitely my gain and I can’t wait for the world to see what you can do”
After falling head over heels and deciding he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Chyna, Neil decided he wanted to propose to her, and even enlisted the help of fellow Strictly star and close pal Tyler West to help him do so.
But just when he’d got his head around the idea of planning a wedding, the couple were hit with a second dose of joy – Chyna was pregnant!
Neil told HELLO! : "I'd already planned to ask Chyna to marry me before we knew she was pregnant. Then we found out and I was like: 'Oh, this is brilliant, everything is coming together'."
"At first, I thought he was joking because we play jokes on each other all the time," Chyna said of the moment Neil got down on one knee.
"Then Neil was like: 'Chyna, so is it a "yes" or "no"?' because a few minutes had passed and he was still on one knee. I was like: ‘Yeah!'"
