The mother-to-be donned a face mask and covered up her bump in a floaty blue broderie anglaise top and white denim shorts.
Sammy opted for a white Valentino T-shirt and jeans.

The news comes just three months after Dani and Sammy rekindled their relationship following a brief, four week separation.
The TV personality ended the couple’s 10-month romance amid claims her boyfriend’s court case for scamming two elderly men out of £34,000 had put ‘a strain on their relationship’.
Sammy was accused of posing as a financial investor and duping the men – aged 90 and 80 – out of thousands by running ‘S&S Trading Ltd’ for two and a half years, which he denied.
His victims, Peter Martin and Peter Haynes, were said to have been clients at a legitimate investment company where he previously worked.
So pleased: Friends were quick to congratulate Dani and Sammy following Tuesday’s announcement
The couple – who had dated prior to Dani’s Love Island stint – grew close during lockdown after Sammy ‘begged’ the reality star to spend time with him.
A source told The Sun: ‘Dani and Sammy’s split was a shock but she felt the trust had gone and that he was bringing her down. Sammy wasn’t going to let her walk out of his life without a fight and begged her to spend some time with him.
‘Since going into lockdown, Sammy has been pulling out all the stops to make Dani give their relationship a second chance.’
The insider added: ‘They’ve been enjoying cosy dinners and spending hours talking about the future.
‘Dani wanted to know Sammy was serious about giving their relationship another chance and he’s pleaded with her to stick with him. They were having blazing rows before they split up but now it’s all sweetness and light again.’
In January, Dani’s ex-boyfriend and fellow Love Island winner Jack Fincham, 29, announced the shock birth of his own baby, daughter Blossom, nine months after the couple announced their split.

The couple won the ITV2 reality show together in the summer of 2018 and dated for around a year.
Jack described the arrival as the ‘best thing to ever happen to him’ as he shared the sweet news. He later revealed his daughter’s mother was childhood friend Casey Ranger, an NHS health compliance officer.
In February, when asked when his ex girlfriend, Dani, found out the news, he told Loose Women: ‘When everyone else did. It was something we [me and Casey] wanted to keep to ourselves.
‘In the end, I was so excited and I couldn’t wait to tell everyone.’
Jack revealed he kept his baby news a secret so that his little girl Blossom’s mother Casey could have a ‘peaceful pregnancy’.
The media personality said he has known his baby mama since he was 17 and their co-parenting situation ‘just works’ due to their long-standing friendship.
Speaking at the National Television Awards, he said: ‘I kept the pregnancy a secret so her mum could have a peaceful pregnancy and she did.
‘Everyone from Love Island has been in touch to wish me well and it made me cry.’
Speaking to Loose Women in February, Jack admitted Dani only heard about his daughter ‘when everyone else did.’
He said: ‘It was something we [me and Casey] wanted to keep to ourselves. In the end, I was so excited and I couldn’t wait to tell everyone.’
Dani’s pregnancy also means her EastEnders star father Danny Dyer and mother Joanne Mas are poised to become first time grandparents at the age of just 43.
