Pregnant Lauren Goodger breaks down in tears as she's 'overwhelmed' with emotion and admits she needs 'help and advice'

LAUREN Goodger broke down in tears and admitted she was "overwhelmed" with emotion after sharing her pregnancy news.

The 34-year-old star announced she is three months pregnant with Katie Price's ex boyfriend Charles Drury's baby earlier today.

"I just want to say a huge thank you, I've been literally overwhelmed today with the response to my pregnancy," she told fans on Instagram stories.

"It's now out there, it's official, me and Charlie are having a baby, it's a beautiful gift, we're so happy and excited and I'm so happy to share it with you all."

"And I need as much help and advice from all the mums out there," she continued.

"I've already had some of my fellow co-stars, celebrity mums ring me which is beautiful, I've been so emotional today.

"It just makes me feel really loved and I'm getting emotional."

The former Towie favourite is due to give birth in July, and she admitted that her 23-year-old toyboy didn't believe her when she first told him she'd had a positive pregnancy test.

Telling all on the moment that she found out she is expecting, Lauren shared: "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."

The star went on to tell New magazine that she's feeling "tired", adding: "But it’s exciting and we’re really happy. It’s difficult, but we’ve just got through it."

Lauren and Charles – who dated Katie in 2019 – have enjoyed a whirlwind romance, with the beauty moving him into her Essex home after just three weeks of dating.

The pair had also already said "I love you" by that point, with a source telling us 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."

Charles rated 42-year-old Katie Pricea "one out of ten in bed" after their fling in 2019.

Meanwhile, Lauren's most recent romance before Charles was with jailbird Joey Morrison for two years, which she has since admitted regretting.

The star's longest relationship was the 11 years she spent with Mark Wright, whom she began dating when they were 15.

And she also dated Jake McLean on and off between 2012 and 2016.

In 2017, Lauren bravely opened up about her and Jake's heartbreaking 2013 miscarriage while she was competing on Dancing On Ice.

She told Channel 5's In Therapy at the time: "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 miscarried the baby, but tried not to dwell on her loss and decided to focus on the future.

She added: "I'm the type of person who, when something happens, I move on.

"That's how I am. It's not something I addressed."

Asked if she grieved, she told the therapist: "No, I just moved on".

It was Lauren's second pregnancy, as she had also had an abortion when she was 19 while dating Mark.

She shared: "I was too young, the family didn't want it at all and put me under a lot of pressure.

"My mum was saying I should keep it, but I was like, 'No way, I'm not doing that'."

However, last year a source told Closer that Lauren is now desperate to start a family, revealing at the time: "Lauren’s wanted to settle down and have kids for years.

"Now that she’s found Charles, she’s really hoping it could become a reality."
