Lauren Goodger Declares 'Baby Will Come When Ready'

Lauren Goodger is due to give birth to a baby girl within weeks!

After some of her followers quipped that it feels like she has been ‘pregnant forever’, ex-TOWIE star Lauren took to her Instagram to remind them that her little girl will ‘come when she is ready’ – and we could not agree more! It is so, so annoying in the later stages of pregnancy, to be constantly asked when your baby is due. I’m sure many of you readers will agree!

Lauren pointedly posted on her Instagram story on Thursday evening.

In a snap with her face hidden, Lauren showed off her blossoming bump whilst lying on her side with a pillow nestled between her legs for comfort and support, and shared;

“Everyone keeps saying on here seems like I’ve been pregnant forever. I am only pregnant same time as everyone else. I’m growing a baby and she will come when she’s ready at the end of the third trimester. I am not due yet but few weeks and she will be here. July baby.


Me and the bump just had a nap, I sleep so much better in the morning / day than nighttime! Baby girl doesn’t move as much either we sleep.”

We’re so glad that Lauren has addressed this publicly!

Many parents will agree that it can be quite irritating to be bombarded with comments like ‘any sign of baby’, or ‘when will baby be here?’ – even when they’re kind and well-meaning! It’s an exhausting, emotional time and as Lauren has so rightfully pointed out… babies come when they’re ready to come (unless in exceptional circumstances, of course).

On Friday, Lauren shared some cute photos in an Instagram post for her partner Charles.

Lauren spoilt the daddy-to-be with Chelsea FC themed birthday cards and cake. She also treated Charles to a ticket for an upcoming football match, as well as enjoying a luxury spa break together. Taking to her Instagram stories, Lauren declared; ‘Happy 24th Birthday to my world, my boyfriend, my best friend and the father of our 1st baby!’

For another surprise birthday treat, Lauren wrote Charles a card from his unborn daughter.

Charles captioned the snap in his Instagram stories with; ‘Little something from my princess too, daddy can’t wait for you to be here,’ – how sweet! We think that Charles is going to be such a doting daddy to his little girl. Decorated with a heart- shaped scan photo of their daughter, the adorable card was decorated with a poem to daddy, which you can read below.
