Charles Drury and Lauren Goodger.

A builder and amateur football player, he's also signed with the FOMO model agency and, like Lauren, has launched his own OnlyFans account.

It's been reported that his bio on the adult-video sharing website says: “23. Dominant BadBoy once you sub you’ll know just how bad!”

He’s said to have nearly 40,000 followers on Instagram – although his profile is private.

I’ve heard he was romantically involved with Katie Price at one point. I want ALL the details!

In 2019, Charles and glamour model Katie Price had a fling.

Afterwards, he told The Sun: “For any lad it’s like a dream come true, but it wasn’t anything to brag about to my mates.

“I thought it was going to be better than what I expected.

“I was disappointed.

“The whole expectation of her being Katie Price – this glamour model – you’re thinking it’s going to be amazing but then it’s an anti-climax.”

How long have Charles and Lauren been together? They make a lovely couple!

Lauren, 34, reportedly confirmed her relationship with Charles last year and moved him into her Essex pad – just three weeks after dating.

It’s also believed they told each other ‘I love you’ after only three weeks.

How lovely!

Don’t you just love a whirlwind romance?!

What do we know about their baby? It’s such wonderful news!

They are having a girl.

Their little bundle of joy is due to arrive in the summer.

In an interview with new! magazine, Lauren spoke of the moment she found out she was pregnant.

“I was in bed not well with a cold and I was meant to come on that day and I’m always quite regular,” she said.

“We went and bought a test from a bargain shop and I did it – I couldn’t believe it!

“I rang him (Charles) and he was like ‘you’re lying, you’re joking’."

Of the gender of her baby, she 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’s really strong and really active on the scans – she kicks about, waves about and sunbathes.

“My blood tests also came back amazing.”

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’.
