‘There was no pregnancy or labour complications and she was fine & healthy but I am not going into detail right now just know that there was nothing wrong with her or myself she was perfect I can’t understand it she is so so beautiful Larose twin so similar.. 

‘I am broken. I am back home from hospital Me & Charlie spent as much time with our baby girl Lorena and I haven’t said my goodbye yet… please can I ask photographers to respect our privacy right now as we have a lot of grieving to do and funeral organising that I just need this time & with my baby girl Larose she is my rock that’s getting me through this or I wouldn’t survive… 

‘I will never ever get over this but I will learn how to live everyday with Lorena in my heart she will be with me always and I will be with her again one day … My Lorena I love you so much.’ 

The news comes as she mourns the death of her ex-boyfriend Jake McClean who was killed after his car careened off the road in Turkey last Sunday, leaving passenger and close friend Yazmin Oukhellou seriously injured.

Lauren revealed she was expecting her second child in January, just days after it was revealed she had kicked partner Charles Drury out of the family home following his romp with another woman.

An insider told MailOnline that Charles knew Lauren was pregnant with their second child when he had a fling with Amy Gilbert, 24, during their brief split in November.

Speaking to OK! magazine about her pregnancy, Lauren admitted the exes were debating whether to keep the baby.

‘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,’ she said.

Lauren explained: ‘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.”‘

‘We had that little break [in November] and he came back and was like, “You’re not having a termination – I want this family.” I knew deep down I was going to go ahead with it, but I was scared. I’ve got to think of Larose too.’

Explaining how she found out she was expecting just eight weeks after giving birth to Larose, Lauren added: “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.’

Lauren and Charles split in November last year just months after their baby daughter was born but reconciled three weeks later. 

They then split again in January before coming together once more in April.  

Lauren revealed that her on-off beau won her back with ‘loads of good sex and said their relationship was now ‘stronger than ever’, including in the bedroom.

Charles added that his time apart from Lauren made him realise what he was missing and that going to therapy helped him mature from a ‘boy to a man.’

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. 

They 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.

The birth of Lauren’s second child comes as she grieves the death of ex Jake, who was tragically killed in a car crash in Turkey while driving with TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou, who has been left seriously injured but is ‘recovering’ in hospital.

It was reported that Lauren, who dated Jake on and off for four years from 2012, had secretly reconciled with Jake up until 2020. 

An insider told The Sun that they ‘always rekindled their romance and truly loved each other’, and only ended when she sparked her romance with Charles.

Friends close to Lauren told MailOnline the pregnant mother-of-one has been left ‘devastated’ by Jake’s untimely death.

Lauren broke her silence on the shock death on her Instagram page, writing: ‘R.I.P Jake, I have no words right now. My thoughts are with your family & friends.’

Lauren previously revealed that she suffered a miscarriage after trying for a baby with Jake while competing on Dancing On Ice in 2013.

The reality star shared her heartbreak on Channel 5 programme, In Therapy, explaining: ‘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 said: ‘I’m the type of person who, when something happens, I move on. That’s how I am. It’s not something I addressed.

She told the therapist that she didn’t take the time to grieve, saying: ‘No, I just moved on’.

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 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.
