Lauren Goodger has announced she is expecting her first child with Charles Drury.
The former TOWIE star confirmed her relationship with Katie Price’s former flame back in October, before moving in together shortly afterwards.
The 34-year-old shared the news of her pregnancy with new! magazine, saying: “This is where my life starts.”
“We were quite sexually active and I’m not on anything [contraceptives] and it happened very soon,” she explained.
Charles, 23, added: “Family has always been such a big thing and I’ve got friends who have done it from such a young age, and my mum had me at quite a young age as well – at 17.
“It’s something that happened naturally and we wanted it straight away. When Lauren told me, it was mixed emotions, but something that I’d always wanted.”
Lauren admitted: “I don’t think I’ll relax until the baby is here. I’m going to worry, because I worry anyway.
“But I’m just being careful. Because of lockdown everything is cancelled and I’m not running around and I’ve got time and my body is adjusting and has time to rest, which is perfect.”
The reality star continued: “We’re very comfortable with each other and we’ve been through a lot.
“We’re settled at home and we’re having a baby –it’s gone 100 miles an hour! We’re a family now.”
The news comes after Lauren faced serious backlash online, after admitting she won’t take the coronavirus vaccine.
According to the Daily Star, the TV personality made the comments during an Instagram Live this week, and likened Covid-19 to a common cold.
The London native said: “I am more scared of the vaccine than I am of the virus. I will start imagining that I am dying.”
Lauren also claimed she is “exempt” from wearing a face covering, and said: “I don’t believe in masks.”
