Lauren Goodger reveals she’s 16 weeks pregnant with a second daughter

Lauren Goodger has announced she is expecting her second child with Charles Drury.

The former TOWIE star, who welcomed her daughter Larose in July 2021, revealed the happy news in an interview with New Magazine.

Lauren, 35, has comfirmed she is 16 weeks pregnant with another girl, days after it was revealed she had kicked her on/off beau out of the family home following his romp with another woman. 

Expecting: Lauren Goodger has announced she is 16 weeks pregnant her second child with Charles Drury, six months after the birth of the couple’s daughter Larose 

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.”

Lauren and Charles split in November last year just months after their baby daughter was born. 

The pregnancy announcement comes days after it was revealed she kicked Charles out of their home in the wake of the revelation he enjoyed a fling with another woman during their brief break-up.  

Insiders told OK! Magazine that Lauren had been left ‘furious’ following news Charles had a steamy fling with Amy Gilbert, 24, during their brief split. 

Amy took to her Instagram Stories as news of Lauren’s pregnancy broke, to brand Charles ‘a disgusting excuse of a man’.

Amy wrote: ‘Wouldn’t usually come on social media to voice my opinion but after today I feel like I had too.’

Addressing Charles she continued: ‘Now this all makes so much sense why you ran off so quickly, why you was so brash and evil that you wanted me to make my decision so quickly so it suited YOU, you wouldn’t support me because it would ‘ruin your whole life.’

‘Everything was about YOU, you made me feel so alone. You really are a disgusting excuse of a “man”.’ 

Sources said: ‘Lauren was really hurt when she found out about Charles’ fling with Amy. 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.’

Lauren lookalike Amy has claimed that Charles reached out to her during their break and they began sleeping together before he reunited with Lauren.

Charles has admitted to the steamy tryst which he has labelled a ‘mistake’, and said: ‘I was stupid and things happened’. 

Amy has claimed that Charles reached out to her via direct message on Instagram and invited her to his home in East London for sex, before spending a weekend together.  

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.

Explaining that things quickly went south, Amy said: ‘The reason it all cut off was because I was round there and it must have been about half 12 at night. I saw Lauren kept popping up on his phone. I said to him “I understand you’ve got a baby together but what are you talking about at half 12 at night?”

Amy said that they had a bit of a ‘barney’ and Charles told her that he wants to have his daughter in his life. The next day she saw in the media that Charles and Lauren were back together.

Amy said she was disappointed he hadn’t been honest about his relationship with Lauren and claimed he repeatedly told her their relationship was ‘toxic’.

She revealed that she reached out to Lauren to tell her what had been going on and the reality personality replied telling her she would call her later.

However she never heard from Lauren and claims she only received a call from Charles asking her to ‘stop ruining his life’. They haven’t spoken since.

Charles told the Sun that his relationship with Amy was a ‘mistake’ and he ended things after deciding he wanted to sort things out with his family. 

A representative for Lauren declined to comment. 

Lauren recently spoke out on the couple’s ‘stressful’ split, admitting how having a new baby and moving home took its toll on their romance, with her boyfriend feeling ‘overwhelmed  with everything.’

Suggesting he was the one to step away from their relationship, Lauren added in her new! magazine column late last year that he ‘had to take five minutes out’, before adding that the pair are ‘really good now’.

She explained: ‘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.’ 

The couple made their relationship Instagram official once again as Charles shared a family snap to Instagram in December doting on daughter Larose during a winter stroll. 

Charles captioned the snap: ‘Here with you is where I belong, our love so strong, an unbreakable bond♥️’, to which Lauren commented: ‘Love our little lady so much and that man there forever’. 

The couple’s whirlwind romance first came to light in October 2020 when Lauren teased she was dating a mystery man, who was soon to be identified as Charles.

The couple announced their expecting their first child together, just three months after going public with their relationship.

Lauren’s partner has a history of dating older women, having previously enjoyed a brief fling with former glamour model Katie Price, 42, in 2019. 

The reality star’s relationship was also tested when their daughter was taken ill and was rushed to hospital with suspected sepsis last year.

Detailing Larose’s illness, Lauren said: ‘The tests came back and they said, “She hasn’t got sepsis, she’s got a fever from an infection.” I was like, “Phew!” She was on antibiotics and a drip.’

Lauren went on to say how her girl was ‘more herself’ by day two and three, with a doctor telling her she needn’t ‘panic’ as it was ‘so common’ and babies ‘get ill 12 times a year’. 

The couple and their daughter also all fell ill with coronavirus in December. 

Lauren Goodger’s romance history

Mark Wright: 1999-2011

Lauren found fame on The Only Way Is Essex while in a on-off, 12-year relationship with ex-fiancé Mark Wright.

Their tumultuous relationship was filled with infidelity on Mark’s part, trust issues, and tensions between Lauren and his family.

The couple cut off their engagement in May 2011, just five months after his proposal, and the presenter went on to marry actress Michelle Keegan, 33, in 2015.

Lauren later revealed she had an abortion at the age of 20 after the couple decided they weren’t ready to become parents.

She told OK! in 2011: ‘I did think I was pregnant. I’m not on the pill and haven’t been for a little while, just because of my cells, not because I was planning a baby and thank God we didn’t.

‘I was late once and I think it was the stress of what was going on. I’ve been pregnant before with his baby but I chose not to have it. I was only 20. No one knows except my close family.’ 

Jake McLean: 2012-2016

After splitting from Mark, the media personality dated Jake McLean, 33, on and off for four years – from 2012 until May 2016 – with Lauren suffering a miscarriage during their relationship

The TV star discovered she had lost the unborn child while appearing as a contestant on ITV talent show Dancing On Ice in 2013, and later admitted she has little choice but to ‘carry on.’ 

Discussing the loss on Channel 5 show In Therapy in 2017, she said:  ‘I was on a TV show that was quite intense. I had to try and perform when I was quite far gone. It didn’t last.’ 

Lauren and Jake split for the first time later that year before rekindling their romance in 2015. 

Shortly after their final split in May 2016, Lauren told OK! of her former jailbird ex: ‘I fell out of love with him. I know some people say you wake up one day and things click, but that didn’t happen to me; it was a gradual thing.

‘The relationship was quite hard. I felt like I was the one doing everything and putting the effort in. I’m at the age where I’d like to have children but Jake isn’t the sort of man I’d want to do it with.’ 

Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years after conning his way into a mother’s house two days before Christmas in 2006, overpowering her before a masked gang ran in and raided the family home. 

JOEY MORRISION: 2016-2018

The TV star struck up a relationship with another convict, Joey Morrison, but the couple went their separate ways two years later, in 2018, despite Lauren waiting for him while he served time behind bars.

Joey, 31, was given a 16-year prison sentence for a violent offence but was released after nine years – Lauren and Joey split close to his release date.

In 2019, Lauren opened up about her two year romance with Joey, who was sentenced for drug related crimes, saying: ‘My ex was my biggest mistake. I wasted two years when I could have been dating. I wish I hadn’t waited for him to come out.’

Writing previously in new! magazine of her relationship with Joey, she said: ‘I regret giving two and a half years of my life to someone who was in jail only for him to come out and not be what I thought. 

‘I thought we were going to get a house, get married and have kids. I regret the time I’ve wasted.’ 

Charles Drury: 2020-present

In October 2020, Lauren teased she was dating a mystery man, who was soon to be identified as Charles Drury, 23.

The amateur footballer and builder has littered his social media account with images of his girlfriend.

Sharing his thoughts on their romance, Charles previously gushed: ‘The story of you & me is my favourite because it’s happening so naturally.’ 

The couple announced their expecting their first child together, just three months after going public with their relationship.

Lauren’s partner has a history of dating older women, having previously enjoyed a brief fling with former glamour model Katie Price, 42, in 2019.
