Malin Andersson, 31, shared a frightening ordeal that saw her two-year-old daughter get stuck in her car with a sophisticated ‘anti-burgling system’ that meant there was no way in.

The Love Island star, who appeared in the 2015 second series, shared this worrying incident on her Instagram page as she warned fellow mothers to be ‘vigilant’.

The star explained that her daughter Xaya, who was born in 2022, grabbed her car keys and locked herself in the vehicle, leaving her without a phone to call for help or anything to use to get her toddler out of the car.

In the post, the TV personality said: ‘Heads up to all my fellow mumma’s out there, yesterday I took Xaya to the park and stepped out to let her out, she swiped the keys and locked herself in. My phone and everything else was in there and I was like F**K.’

Fortunately, the star was with her friend so was able to dial 999 and get her daughter out of the car quickly.

‘The fire brigade came and opened the door safely within minutes but this never crossed my mind and I could have been in a worse situation where my friend wasn’t with me and I hadn’t had access to a phone,’ she wrote.

‘The design of the car has a crazy anti-burgling system so there was no way in. The firemen were absolutely amazing and Xaya luckily was calm until the end when she saw them surrounding her.’

While this incident was quickly different, had the weather been hot and the toddler stuck for a long time in the car, things could have easily turned south. 

Malin added at the end of the caption that she is now ‘extra vigilant’ as she advised: ‘If this is something you haven’t thought of please be aware as I wasn’t.’

Fans were quick to support the star and a surprising number related to this mishap.

@karleyalexw said: ‘I thought it only happened to me 😅😅😅 so glad I’m not alone in this fortune lol.’

@juxy_s related to this problem saying: ‘This happened to my daughter. They had to break the back window.’

Xaya’s father is Malin’s ex Jared; the pair had been friends for five years before they decided to begin a relationship and went public with their romance in July 2021. The couple then announced their pregnancy a month later in August 2021 and Xaya was born in February 2022.

The couple broke up just a couple of weeks after their daughter’s birth with the Love Islander crediting her hormones and the pressure of having a newborn.

Speaking about her breakup with Xaya’s dad, Malin told OK!: ‘There was a lot of pressure involved. Plus, he’s only ever really known me as hormonal Malin because I’d been pregnant pretty much ever since we’d first gotten together!

‘I was relying on him so much that I feel like he lost himself a bit. It was best for both of us to take some months apart, so that’s what we did.’

Xaya isn’t Malin’s only child as the star gave birth to a daughter Consy in 2018 who died when she was just a month old. Soon after Consy’s death, Malin split with her late daughter’s father, Tom Kemp, and a few years later began dating Xaya’s father.
