“I had to try and perform when I was quite far gone. It didn’t last.”

The 30-year-old added that she miscarried the baby, but did not grieve for the loss of her child.

“I’m the type of person who, when something happens, I move on,” she said. “That’s how I am. It’s not something I addressed.

I just moved on.

“I just moved on.”

This was the second pregnancy for Lauren, who also aborted a baby when she was just 19 while dating her TOWIE co-star Mark Wright.

Speaking of the couple’s decision to terminate the pregnancy, she said: “I was too young, the family didn’t want it at all and put me under a lot of pressure.

“My mum was saying I should keep it, but I was like: ‘No way, I’m not doing that.'”

Lauren and Mark’s 11-year on-off relationship ended in 2012.

Despite her past turmoils, the Essex babe is still keen to start a family and believes current boyfriend Joey Morrison will make a great dad.

Joey however, is behind bars, serving a 17-year sentence for crimes including kidnap and blackmail.

Lauren told Closer: “I want one right now, really. Hopefully I’ll have a little girl, but if I have a boy first, then it’s fine because she’ll have an older brother.”

Will she get her happy ending? We hope so.
