Lauren Goodgers home birth plan – from labouring in a stable to hoping Larose sleeps

Lauren Goodger is due to give birth to her second daughter – a beautiful baby girl – this summer.

The former TOWIE star announced she's pregnant with her second child in OK! back in January, and as her due date looms, Lauren who is 31 weeks pregnant, opened up to OK! this week about her birth hopes, revealing she plans for the forthcoming labour to be at her Essex home.

The star, who delivered daughter Larose, now nine months, on the living room floor of her former apartment and is aiming for another water birth, told OK!: “This time I’m really worried about Larose, but hopefully she’ll be asleep.

"But I’m going to do it [give birth] in the annexe – it’ll be like a stable. Thank God it’s double-glazed!

“I’m going to get a smaller birthing pool, Charlie’s going to be there and my midwife and doula. The good thing about a home birth is you can have a shower and a cup of tea after.”

Lauren recently rekindled her romance with builder Charles Drury, who is father to her two children. He told us in our chat that he was "very impressed with the way Lauren dealt" with the first home birth.

"Lauren’s already done it once and she did it really well and everyone said she had the textbook labour for her first birth," he said.

The couple have put their past relationship problems behind them. Lauren ended things with Charles days before announcing her pregnancy upon learning about his night with another woman.

Charles sought therapy and Lauren forgave him for the hurt he'd caused her.

And now things couldn't be better for the parents.

“We went through it and I’m glad we’ve gone through it as it’s actually made us stronger,” 35-year-old Lauren said. “It’s probably better now than it ever has been.”

While Charles added: "Moving house, having a baby and going through the tests in our relationship has made us stronger and now we’re probably the happiest we’ve been. I’m really happy my family is back together and things have been good at home. I’m 100% committed to my family.”
