Lauren Goodger has shared her devastation after her newborn daughter, Lorena, passed away.
After finding out that she was expecting again only 8 weeks after welcoming her first child, Larose, with beau Charles Drury, Lauren had shared regular pregnancy updates with her followers on social media and was eagerly anticipating the arrival of their new addition.
She broke the awful news a day after her daughter suddely passed away after her birth, in a heartfelt Instagram photo complete with a beautiful image of Lorena's tiny hands holding hers and with a caption that touched upon what had happened.

She told readers that whilst she's not able to go into details at the moment, there were no complications with the pregnancy or labour, that there was 'nothing wrong with her or myself' so it appears to have been a very sudden and distressing shock to Lauren and Charles. We can only hope that they are being supported and that they get some answers as to what happened to their baby girl, and we also send all of our love to the family.
Amid the flurry of messages of love and support they have recieved, Lauren and Charles reached out to OK Magazine to share their gratitude via a spokesperson;
"Lauren and Charles would like to thank everyone for their amazing support at this hard time. The messages have been so lovely and even though it takes no pain away it really has helped to see how much support there is for them. They are completely overwhelmed and touched by the response."
