Lauren said of her happy news: ‘It’s exciting and we’re really happy. It’s difficult, but we’ve just got through it.’ 

Recalling the moment she discovered she was pregnant, she said: ‘I was in bed not well with a cold and I was meant to come on that day and I’m always quite regular.

‘We went and bought a test from a bargain shop and I did it – I couldn’t believe it! I rang him and he was like: ‘You’re lying, you’re joking.’ He didn’t believe the test! I did a digital one as well and he walked around with it in his bag for about three days.’

In February, Lauren admitted that she found the first three months of her pregnancy ‘quite difficult’ due to sickness and nausea. 

During an Instagram Q&A, she answered questions about her journey into motherhood, including her baby’s name, a gender reveal and plans for labour.

 Lauren moved Charles, whose former girlfriends include retired glamour model Katie Price, into her Essex home in late October within weeks of meeting him.

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘Charles has moved into her Essex home and they’re really loved up. She’s head over heels for him – friends can’t believe how fast she’s fallen for him. Everyone’s hoping she’s finally found The One.’ 

Lauren found fame on The Only Way Is Essex while in a relationship with ex-fiancé Mark Wright, with whom she was in a relationship for over 10 years, before going on to date jailbirds Jake McLean and Joey Morrison.
