“17/06/23. At 36 weeks she decided she was ready & changed our lives for the better My little family, my heart is filled with so much love it could burst,” she captioned the picture.

Of course, her comments were filled with congratulations from her pals, with Jodie Woods writing: “Angel couldn’t wait a minute longer!”

“The biggest congrats,” Emma Kehoe wrote.

“Huge congratulations guys omg,” Sophie Murray added.


Lauren shared her pregnancy news earlier this year with a video of her on the beach.

In the clip, she walked towards the ocean before her husband joined her with both of them placing their hands on our blossoming baby bump.

How sweet!

“Our next chapter awaits,” she captioned the video.

She also added the song To Our Daughter (Lullaby) by My Best Friend Jacob to the video.

In an Instagram Q&A she explained that she was six months along but the couple chose to keep the start of their pregnancy journey private.

“To be honest, I didn’t share anything at the time because it was so so hard but we told our families very early as we knew we were saying goodbye to John’s mom, who sadly passed away a few months ago,” Lauren wrote.

“We were going through ALL the emotions and to be very honest I didn’t even have time to think of pregnancy anxiety with everything that was going on at the time. So yeah, it has been a very bitter sweet few months but we know she’s here every step of the way.“

She went on to say: “I guess I always knew I would wait a while. I also hadn’t really started showing until two weeks ago. It was winter and I was covered constantly and I thought I’d keep it to our nearest and dearest.

“I also didn’t feel like my content was going to majorly change so I wanted to wait till our baby moon when I was really starting to show.“
