Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger says she's found a whole new confidence now that she's a mum-to-be.
The 34-year-old, who is due to give birth to her first child next month, told OK! Magazine, “I feel confident because I’m not fat, I’m pregnant.”
Lauren took part in a glamorous photoshoot, cradling her baby bump and looking fabulous in a series of pastel and bold-coloured bodysuits that showed off her figure.
She has confessed to having a tough time during her pregnancy, suffering from panic attacks that make her feel like she was going to die, and having to go to hospital two months ago when she was convinced that the baby was not moving.
In the past, she has also admitted to struggling with her weight and her self-esteem, and had a breast enhancement operation in 2013, going up a cup size from a 34D to a 34E.

Once her baby daughter is born, Lauren says she is planning on breastfeeding her, so she may need to think about having another surgery to remove her implants eventually.
She said: "I did have just a nice bump, but now the boobs are dropping and everything’s changing. Obviously I had a boob job, but now I’m thinking, "I'm going to have to get these boobs sorted after".'

She added: "I want my implants out. I'll be breastfeeding, so I don't want to mess around with anything, so I'll see what they look like once I've had the baby. They might just be floppy at the minute, because they're full of milk."
And it sounds like Lauren is planning to expand her little family as soon as she can.

She continued: "I also want a little boy now. I want to get my body back and my boobs sorted out and I could do that and get pregnant again.”
The Essex businesswoman, who is expecting her first child with her partner Charles Drury, has been carefully monitored by her midwife throughout her pregnancy.
After a scare over the baby's development, Lauren is happy to report that her midwife has given her the all-clear for a home birth. She hopes to have a birthing pool in her front room and make the delivery as relaxing as possible with soft music and calm lighting.

Her midwife has also suggested that she ‘slow down’ and stay relaxed in order to help with her anxiety and allow the baby to grow naturally.
Lauren said: "The midwife asked me what I've been up to and I told her about re-starting my aesthetics business and she said this is the time where I should be slowing down and not taking on something new.'

She continued that her daughter is hitting all of her targets, saying: “My little girl is bang on the middle of a normal weight at the moment.”
