GEMMA Owen’s famous parents gushed over their daughter’s appearance on Love Island.
Proud dad and former footballer, Michael Owen, told his fans “she’s done us proud”, while mum Louise said Gemma, “kept it classy.”
Even though she didn’t take out the top prize, Michael and Louise were very happy with how their daughter went on the show.
Posting a photo to Twitter with him and Gemma at a restaurant, Michael wrote: “She’s done us proud.”
And before the finale aired, Louise shared a photo of Gemma on her final date with Luca to her Instagram.
“Whatever happens tonight is irrelevant. I am beyond proud of you @gemowen_1 you have kept it classy throughout ❤️” lei scrisse.
