Lauren Goodger has revealed that she’s 16 weeks pregnant with her second daughter not long after reuniting with her boyfriend Charles Drury – it means the star will have two children under one
Lauren Goodger has announced she’s pregnant with Charles Drury’s second baby.
The ex-TOWIE star, 35, and her builder boyfriend, who previously dated Katie Price, welcomed daughter Larose together in July last year.
Following a split, reconciliation, and more drama that reportedly saw Lauren kick Charles out, she’s revealed that they have another baby on the way.
Now Lauren has revealed she is 16 weeks pregnant with a second daughter – but said the news was a complete shock.
She told OK! magazine: “I hadn’t had a period for quite a few weeks, my nipples were killing me and when I was breastfeeding the pain was unbearable. I thought, “I bet you I’m pregnant!” I did a test and it said positive.
“We weren’t very careful and Charlie was really pleased, but being honest I was really in two minds about it. I was like, “I’m just getting myself back together – I’m going back to square one. Is this fair?” You get real mum guilt, like, “What about Larose? She’s still a baby, she still needs me, I won’t be able to be there for her.” A lot went through my mind which is why I’ve held out a bit longer until I’ve announced it. Charlie was like, “I really want this baby.” And I said, “So do I.” I made the decision to go ahead with it and I’m so glad I did.”
Last week, Charles admitted he’d made a mistake by hooking up with another woman during a separation from Lauren.
The 24-year-old spoke out after Instagram model Amy Gilbert, also 24, told of how she’d had sex with him and spent the weekend at his East London home.
Amy told The Sun : “We were messaging for a couple of days on there and then he wanted me to go and meet him in a local place he was living – and I did.
“I slept with him on that night, it was quite intense first of all, then he asked to see me again the following day. I then went and met him again.”
Amy claimed she then spent a whole weekend at Charles’ place and that they were “on and off” and talking every other day on FaceTime.
But she claimed that he eventually went back to Lauren because he’s “fame hungry” and because of the “money”.
Amy claimed she’d questioned Charles one night when Lauren’s name kept popping up on his phone after midnight.
She said she had told him she was understanding that they shared daughter Larose, but didn’t get why they were in constant contact so late at night.
Amy claims they had an argument and Charles told her he wanted his daughter in his life, and that the next day she saw in the media that they were back together.
She said she’s disappointed that he didn’t tell her he was reuniting with Lauren.
And she said that she reached out to Lauren “woman to woman” to let her know what had happened between them.
Amy says Lauren told her she’d call later on, but when she got a call from an unknown number it was actually Charles, who told her to “stop ruining his life”.
Giving his side of the story, Charles claimed Amy was “sour she got cut off”.
He admitted that he had slept with her but that he had been “stupid” and that four or five days after their first point of contact that he realised he’d made “a mistake”.
He said he went back to Lauren because he “wanted to sort things out with my family”.
Within hours, it was reported that Lauren had kicked Charles out of her Essex home.
“Lauren was really hurt when she found out about Charles’ fling with Amy,” an insider told OK!
“She was absolutely furious with him and can’t understand how he could do this to his family.
“She told him to pack his bags and leave and he has.”
Speaking about her first split from Charles at the time, Lauren later admitted that he’d just needed space.
She told New magazine: “Listen, moving house and having a baby are very stressful things. Having a baby, as well as it being a beautiful and amazing thing, really does test couples.
“For Charlie, it’s a lot of change and I think he was quite overwhelmed with everything. As much as he loves me and Larose, he had to take five minutes out.”
