Lauren Goodger became pregnant with her second child just 10 weeks after giving birth and admits she has considered having an abortion.
The former TOWIE star, 35, says she considered terminating her pregnancy after splitting from her children’s father Charles Drury and discovering she would be a single mother of two children under one.
Lauren and Charles, 24, went their separate ways after welcoming daughter Larose together, but they’re working hard to become parents together, especially now that they have another young child on the way.
And when her relationship with the builder ended, Lauren said she started thinking about her future as a single mom.
She admitted she was considering quitting, Lauren said The sun : “I was undecided. I wasn’t sure what to do and worried if this would all be fair to Larose.
“I didn’t want her to feel confused — she was my No. 1 and I would never want her to think that’s changed. Also, the situation with me and Charlie wasn’t great.
“Everyone was like, ‘Lauren, don’t go on – you’re fine with a kid.’ There was a lot to think about.”
After thinking long and hard about it, Lauren decided that being a single mom didn’t scare her and that while it would be hard, it would be a “beautiful challenge.”
And Charles was very supportive of her decision, with Lauren saying he wanted the baby regardless of their romantic situation.
Lauren said she has “no worries” about her ex as she knows how much he loves Larose and that he will love their second daughter just as much.
The reality star’s second pregnancy came as quite a surprise as she was exclusively breastfeeding Larose at the time, which usually stops menstruation.
It was recently reported that Lauren and Charles are sleeping their nights under the same roof as she prepares for the birth.
A source tells New! Magazine: “Lauren and Charles remain co-parents to their daughter. Charlie is there on the weekends and the occasional one night during the week to support Lauren and see Larose.
“He’s staying with Lauren in Essex as he’s currently staying elsewhere – but of course they sleep in separate beds.”
