In an interview with new! magazine, Lauren said: “I’m a girls’ girl, so it’s amazing for me.

“I love the fact I’m having a little girl – my little girl.

“I can dress her how I want and do all the girly things.”

She added: “People say ‘I couldn’t see you with a boy’.

“But I do really want a boy as well, I’m just really happy I’m having a girl – a mini-me!”

Lauren, who is around 22 weeks pregnant, insists she knew she was going to have a girl all along – thanks to tips from psychics.

"I’ve been to fortune tellers and they’ve always told me I’m having a girl, so I’ve always assumed I’m having a girl,” she said.

“When it got confirmed, I was really happy and excited.

“I’m going to be very protective.

“She’s going to be a little diva.”

The TV personality recently revealed she is considering a water birth as she thinks this would help her have the ‘calmest labour for herself and her baby’.
