And after sharing her thoughts on a potential water birth on social media with her Instagram followers, Lauren has been inundated with people encouraging her to do it.

She continued: “I put a story up [on Instagram] and I must have had hundreds of DMs, all of them saying, “It’s the best thing I ever did!”

Continuing that she doesn’t like the thought of giving birth to her baby girl on a bed, Lauren said: “Imagine being on that bed with all the sweat. The only reason I’d like to do it in the bed is it would be nice for photos.”

The former The Only Way Is Essex star then joked about being camera ready for the big day.

She laughed: “Please believe me, I don’t know what I’ll look like at the end of it, but I’m having a blow-dry, a spray tan and I’m having my make-up done.”

“I want to have good memories to keep. I’m only joking – I’ll be holding the baby in tears, dripping with sweat and probably with my hair all over the place.”

Elsewhere in the candid interview, Lauren spoke about how she’s been feeling during pregnancy, admitting that it hasn’t always been plain sailing.

She confessed: “It is difficult, I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. It’s not like, “No, I never want to do this again”, because I will. It’s a beautiful thing.”

“It’s like having the best night out ever, but you’ve not got a hangover the next day – what a way to describe it!” she continued.

However, all in all, Lauren says it has been a memorable experience and something she will look back on and cherish.

“I’ve had the best time, I have spoken to my family, have become really close to my partner and I’ll have this beautiful gift at the end,” she said.

"I’m really excited to be a mum and start this next chapter of my life – I believe I’m going to be a good mum.”
