Lauren Goodger's celebrity friends have rushed to congratulate her on the happy news that she is pregnant with her first child.

The 34 year old announced on Monday morning that she is expecting a baby with boyfriend Charles Drury, 23, in an exclusive interview with new magazine.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren said of their surprise news: "We were quite sexually active and I’m not on anything [contraceptives] and it happened very soon."

After previously suffering a miscarriage, Lauren continued: "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."

Now, her famous pals have flooded social media with support for the reality star, with fellow mum Marnie Simpson amongst the first to pay tribute.
