Lauren Goodger has announced the exciting news that she is pregnant with her first child. 

The former Towie star is expecting a baby with boyfriend Charles Drury and admits it all ‘happened so quickly’ with the couple only going public with their relationship in October. 

‘This is where my life starts,’ Lauren, who is 14 weeks pregnant, told new! Magazine. 

However, it’s not too much of a surprise for the 34-year-old reality star as she revealed: ‘We were quite sexually active and I’m not on anything [contraceptives] and it happened very soon.’ 

Charles, 23, opened up about how he feels about becoming a first-time father in his early 20s and said: ‘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 added: ‘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.’

In his Instagram stories, Charles admitted the pregnancy was the ‘hardest secret [he’s] ever kept’. 

It’s been three months since Lauren and Charles’ romance was first revealed.

At the time, Lauren described her new man as the ‘best looking boy’ she’s ever seen. 

Charles rose to fame as he dated Katie Price during her brief split from ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson last year. However, he’s insisted that they weren’t officially a couple and it was simply a short-lived romance. 

Lauren was famously in a long-term relationship with her Towie co-star Mark Wright and they were also engaged until their split in 2012, while she’s also dated Joey Morrison and Jake McLean.
