Lauren Goodger has paid tribute to her late daughter Lorena on Mother’s Day.

The former TOWIE star, 36, gave birth to her second child in July 2022, but her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck and she tragically lost her life.

Doting mum Lauren, who also shares 20-month-old Larose with her ex-boyfriend Charles Drury, 25, uploaded a touching post to Instagram.

The photo saw Lorena’s face blurred out as she lay in a cot, while Larose’s could be seen on a phone screen beside her. 

Lauren wrote in her caption: ‘Thank you for giving me the best gift and all I’ve ever wanted is to be your “mummy”I love you both to the moon and back and this morning has touched me so deep I wish you was with us my gorgeous Lorena.

‘Happy Mother’s Day everyone, just cuddles is all you need today #mygirls #happymothersday #love #cuddlesandkisses.’

It follows reports Lauren has been ‘begged’ by her friends to ‘not get back together with Charles after he allegedly spent the night at her house last month.

The reality star has had a tumultuous relationship with her builder ex-boyfriend, 25, and have been on-and-off since the tragic death of Lorena.

In February, Lauren and Charles appeared to be getting along well as they took their little one Larose to Woburn Safari Park, taking turns to have their pictures taken. 

But now pals of Lauren have reportedly become concerned with the two getting back together again after he slept at her house this week.

Lauren had allegedly been assaulted on the day of funeral. Charles – who has denied attacking Lauren – was later arrested and bailed. 

A source revealed to The Sun: ‘Lauren’s friends have begged her not to get back together with her ex Charles Drury after they heard Charles had spent the night at her house this week.

‘A few of them reached out to her and told her to stay away from him as they feel like he is bad news and will only bring her more heartache.

‘Lauren insisted that he just slept in the spare room and that they are working on co-parenting Larose, but those closest to her know she and Charles are growing closer. They feel it’s only a matter of time before they are back together.’

A representative for Lauren told MailOnline: ‘Lauren is focused on the welfare as a mother to her daughter- this puts co- parenting at the top of her priorities.’ 

When the pair arrived at Woburn Safari Park on Monday, they were seen cuddling and playing with their infant daughter as they stepped out of the back of a safari vehicle as they made the most of the sights at the park.

Lauren revealed that she lost three stone in the wake of the tragic death of Lorena.

The harrowing grief Lauren experienced following Lorena’s death meant she was unable to eat, but she has put on a stone as her mental health has improved.

Speaking to OK!, she said: ‘I lost nearly three stone after I lost Lorena because of the stress. I didn’t eat. I’m now eating again and I’ve put a stone back on because I’m being more healthy.

‘I stayed indoors and I didn’t go out, and now I feel I’m in a better place mentally. This year is about focusing on me and getting back on track.’

The TV personality also said that her infant daughter Larose has been a ‘rock’ for her and without her, she wouldn’t have been able to have survived Lorena’s death.

She said: ‘She’s the best. She makes me so proud every single day. She’s unbelievable. She’s my rock.

‘I took a break and now I am ready to come back to the industry in the right way.

‘I’m very new to this, like I say, I’ve been through massive trauma, I’m not gonna sugarcoat it but everyone knows and I feel like one day I want to inspire other women.’
