MARNIE Simpson told boyfriend Casey Johnson she was pregnant as a “wind-up” – days before finding out today he’s been using a dating app behind her back.
The Geordie Shore star, 25, has been with Casey since the end of June and has babies on her mind with the 22-year-old singer – who she’s now learned has been using Huggle, without her knowledge.
Surgery-mad Marnie decided to tell the former Union J star she was pregnant as a joke – and also made him get Botox to even out a “deep line” in his face.
Asked about the baby scare, Casey explained to OK! magazine: “Marnie wound me up the other day and told me she was pregnant, just to see how I would react. I was okay with it!”
But asked if she would consider having kids with Casey, Marnie was deadly serious – and said: “Of course [I’d like to], but Casey is only 22 so we’ll wait a while. I’d like to have a child by the time I’m 30 so I’ve still got a few years.”
It’s not the first time Marnie has spoken on this subject either – as she said in August: “I’m getting older and want marriage and children. I don’t have time to waste on a bloody showmance.”
However, all this could change today as a shocked Marnie has retweeted a screenshot of Casey’s dating profile on the location-based app, Huggle which includes five photos and describes him as “musician / reality [star]”.
Re-posting the shot of his profile, Marnie seems to feel her eyes have been opened as she wrote: “Wow. You think you know someone. They’re all the same 😩.”
Previously Marnie, who was cheated on by her ex Lewis Bloor, split from Casey in early July, saying she’d seeing him getting close to another girl and saying he was “just like the rest of them”.
Casey’s rep gave no comment to The Sun Online.
Just last week Casey posted a loved-up tweet about Marnie who he fell for during filming for Single AF in Mexico after her split from Aaron Chalmers.
He wrote: “Nothing better than chilin with my girl @MarnieGShore one in a billion.”
NOT SO SIMP-LE Marnie Simpson’s turbulent love life – from her on/off beau Aaron Chalmers to her budding romance with Casey Johnson
At the end of the summer Casey and Marnie enjoyed a romantic break in Paris posing together by the Eiffel Tower.
But awkwardly one month later, when Geordie Shore’s earlier summer episodes were shown, fans got a flashback to Marnie saying she was the “happiest” she’d ever been with cast mate Aaron.
Casey wouldn’t be the first star to use a dating app while in a relationship – though celebrities don’t tend to get away with secretly using one, due to their fame.
Asked if she thought Steph – who she’d called a “deluded mess” – would get on with her ex, she simply said: “They’re well-suited. They’re similar people so I wish them all the luck in the world [laughs].”
