Lauren Goodger has announced the death of her newborn baby, Lorena.
The former TOWIE star, 35, was expecting her second baby, but today announced that the infant has died following her birth on July 8.
Lauren revealed she was expecting her second child with boyfriend Charles Drury, 24, following the birth of their first child in July last year.
However, in a statement posted to Instagram, Lauren – whose ex-boyfriend Jake McLean was killed in a car crash last week – revealed that little Lorena had died.
The star revealed she is “broken”, as she shared a black and white photo of her holding onto Lorena’s hand, writing: “She was the most beautiful healthy baby I’ve ever seen just like her sister @babylarose.x … words can’t describe as a mother losing your baby that I carried for all these months perfectly and gave birth too for my angel to be taken from me.”
