She wrote: ‘My baby has been in hospital for three days so far with a severe illness. She caught some sort of virus or infection, I think the bronchitis has come back worse.

‘It’s been the hardest two days of my life and me and @CharlesDrury1 have been with her swapping to be with her.’

‘So hard to watch your daughter be in hospital with tubes, drips, cannula, especially being held down she doesn’t understand, it’s broken my heart.

‘I have slept on a chair well didn’t sleep for 24 hours. She’s my world and she’s finally on the mend. Thank you @NHSEngland for your help you lovely people. What would we do without you.’

Lauren then shared a heartwarming video of herself sitting in hospital as she cradled Larose in her arms. Alongside the clip, she wrote: ‘I’ve been by my daughter’s side day and night! Bless her heart she’s on the mend’.

The saga began when Charles, 24, confirmed the couple have gone their ‘separate ways’ but have vowed to ‘remain civil’ for the sake of their child.

He wrote: ‘Only going to post this once, me & Lauren have decided to go our separate ways.

‘Things must remain civil for the sake of our daughter, Lauren is great mum so when it comes to Larose we both have her best interest at heart so she will still see us both.’

He added: ‘I’d appreciate if people could stop making themselves busy & putting their 2 pence in as no drama is needed round here.’

Late last month, Lauren revealed she had caught bronchitis off her daughter.

She said: ‘Mumma and bubba went doctors this morning and she got bronchitis and I’ve caught it so we resting together with lots of cuddles [sic].’ 

Bronchitis is an infection of the main airways of the lungs (bronchi), causing them to become irritated and inflamed.

The main airways branch off on either side of your windpipe (trachea). They lead to smaller and smaller airways inside your lungs called bronchioles.

Lauren first teased she was seeing someone new back in October 2020, later revealed to be Charles. 

The couple announced they were expecting their first child together just three months after going public with their relationship. 

Speaking to Closer magazine after becoming a mother, Lauren praised Charles as a hands-on father.

She said: ‘He has been amazing, especially for a young guy – changing nappies, getting up in the night. He’s even been feeding me my dinner.’

Lauren wrote: ‘It’s been the hardest two days of my life and me and @CharlesDrury1 have been with her swapping to be with her’

Elsewhere Lauren admitted that she’s ‘glad’ she had her first child at this point in her life, because she has ‘more life experience.’

Back in August, Charles admitted Lauren was waiting for him to propose and said it would happen ‘in good time’.

Quizzed by fans on his Instagram about taking the next step in their relationship, he said: ‘Lauren is just waiting for the day I get down on one knee – all in good time.’

Charles also told new!: ‘Some people say you should be married before you have children but everyone goes at their own pace and I’m actually quite happy now that we’re going to be able to share that day with Larose and that’s going to be a magical moment.’

At the beginning of the year Lauren confirmed she was three months pregnant in her new magazine column.

Lauren said of her happy news: ‘It’s exciting and we’re really happy. It’s difficult, but we’ve just got through it.’

Recalling the moment she discovered she was pregnant, she said: ‘I was in bed not well with a cold and I was meant to come on that day and I’m always quite regular.

‘We went and bought a test from a bargain shop and I did it – I couldn’t believe it! I rang him and he was like: ‘You’re lying, you’re joking.’ He didn’t believe the test! I did a digital one as well and he walked around with it in his bag for about three days.’

MailOnline has contacted a representative of Lauren Goodger for comment.

Lauren Goodger’s romance history

Mark Wright: 1999-2011

Lauren found fame on The Only Way Is Essex while in a on-off, 12-year relationship with ex-fiancé Mark Wright.

First love: Lauren and Mark pictured in 2011

Their tumultuous relationship was filled with infidelity on Mark’s part, trust issues, and tensions between Lauren and his family.

The couple cut off their engagement in May 2011, just five months after his proposal, and the presenter went on to marry actress Michelle Keegan, 33, in 2015.

Lauren later revealed she had an abortion at the age of 20 after the couple decided they weren’t ready to become parents.

She told OK! in 2011: ‘I did think I was pregnant. I’m not on the pill and haven’t been for a little while, just because of my cells, not because I was planning a baby and thank God we didn’t.

‘I was late once and I think it was the stress of what was going on. I’ve been pregnant before with his baby but I chose not to have it. I was only 20. No one knows except my close family.’ 

Jake McLean: 2012-2016

After splitting from Mark, the media personality dated Jake McLean, 33, on and off for four years – from 2012 until May 2016 – with Lauren suffering a miscarriage during their relationship

The TV star discovered she had lost the unborn child while appearing as a contestant on ITV talent show Dancing On Ice in 2013, and later admitted she has little choice but to ‘carry on.’ 

Discussing the loss on Channel 5 show In Therapy in 2017, she said:  ‘I was on a TV show that was quite intense. I had to try and perform when I was quite far gone. It didn’t last.’ 

Lauren and Jake split for the first time later that year before rekindling their romance in 2015. 

Shortly after their final split in May 2016, Lauren told OK! of her former jailbird ex: ‘I fell out of love with him. I know some people say you wake up one day and things click, but that didn’t happen to me; it was a gradual thing.

‘The relationship was quite hard. I felt like I was the one doing everything and putting the effort in. I’m at the age where I’d like to have children but Jake isn’t the sort of man I’d want to do it with.’ 

Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years after conning his way into a mother’s house two days before Christmas in 2006, overpowering her before a masked gang ran in and raided the family home. 

JOEY MORRISION: 2016-2018

The TV star struck up a relationship with another convict, Joey Morrison, but the couple went their separate ways two years later, in 2018, despite Lauren waiting for him while he served time behind bars.

Joey, 31, was given a 16-year prison sentence for a violent offence but was released after nine years – Lauren and Joey split close to his release date.

In 2019, Lauren opened up about her two year romance with Joey, who was sentenced for drug related crimes, saying: ‘My ex was my biggest mistake. I wasted two years when I could have been dating. I wish I hadn’t waited for him to come out.’

Writing previously in new! magazine of her relationship with Joey, she said: ‘I regret giving two and a half years of my life to someone who was in jail only for him to come out and not be what I thought. 

‘I thought we were going to get a house, get married and have kids. I regret the time I’ve wasted.’ 

Charles Drury: 2020-present

In October 2020, Lauren teased she was dating a mystery man, who was soon to be identified as Charles Drury, 23.

The amateur footballer and builder has littered his social media account with images of his girlfriend.

Sharing his thoughts on their romance, Charles previously gushed: ‘The story of you & me is my favourite because it’s happening so naturally.’ 

The couple announced their expecting their first child together, just three months after going public with their relationship.

Lauren’s partner has a history of dating older women, having previously enjoyed a brief fling with former glamour model Katie Price, 42, in 2019.
