Lauren gave fans a look at her baby bump after a fan sent in a comment saying: “I f***ing envy your figure”

As she showed the growing bump, Lauren said: “Right now I’m a bit of a ball shape and my belly button has disappeared. It’s really weird.”

The star also detailed how she wants a “natural” birth – without any medical interventions.

She continued: “I want a completely natural birth. I don’t want any epidural or anything. I literally just want gas and air. The old fashion way. So yeah, wish me luck.”

An epidural is pain relief used during childbirth delivered through a tube in the spine.

It decreases the sensation of pain but still allows you to feel contractions and you can still move around. These are required for a caesarean delivery.

Gas and air – known as Entonox – is a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide and reduces some of the pain to make it more bearable.

Elsewhere in her chat, Lauren confirmed she definitely wants to breastfeed, saying: “100% want to breastfeed. I’m just praying with these – because obviously I’ve got implants – I don’t have any problems. If I do I’ll just pump. But I’m definitely, definitely breastfeeding.”

Speaking about her pregnancy, she said: “I found it quite difficult, the first three months. Just over as well. It’s just started to get better. I’m tired still but not the sickness.”

The 34-year-old is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Charles Drury.

The pair have been an item since October, with her moving him into her home three weeks after they struck up a romance.

Lauren is 18 weeks along with the pregnancy and is yet to find out the baby’s gender – though fans believed they spotted it.

Sharing a picture of an ultra-sound in a frame for Charles on Valentine’s Day, eagle-eyed followed noticed the words “a girl” .

But although fans were convinced it gave the game away, Lauren and Charles are yet to find out whether their baby is a girl or a boy.

Lauren’s rep has told The Sun: “It was a frame which has boy and girl on but you couldn’t see the boy bit.

“Lauren will find out the sex of their baby at her 20 week scan in two weeks.”
