Lauren Goodger reveals pregnancy has swollen her lips

Lauren Goodger reveals pregnancy has swollen her lips as she takes to Instagram to question why her pout is plumper ahead of welcoming baby girl

She announced last month that she is expecting a baby girl with her partner Charles Drury.

And Lauren Goodger gave fans a candid insight into her pregnancy on Saturday as she revealed that her lips have swollen ahead of welcoming her first child. 

The former TOWIE star, 34, took to Instagram to share a screenshot of her Google search as she questioned why her pout is plumper ahead of welcoming her baby girl.

Sharing a picture of stars such as Jacqueline Jossa, Serena Williams and Khloé Kardashian – who all also experienced ‘pregnancy lips’ – Lauren wrote: ‘Why do lips swell in pregnancy.’  

Dr Nestor Demosthenous previously told FEMAIL in 2017 that ‘pregnancy lips’ can be a ‘genuine’ side effect. 

They said: ‘Pregnancy can, absolutely, cause swelling of the lips. It can be a genuine side effect. 

‘More commonly pregnant women will retain fluid in the legs and the ankles and feet, but they can also retain it in the hands and the face.’

Dr Nestor added: ‘It is not uncommon for women, particularly those in their second and third trimester to wake up one morning with swollen lips.’

It comes after Lauren sparked speculation she is naming her first child with partner Charles, Lauliè. 

The former TOWIE star previously revealed that she had been toying with made up baby names as she wanted something ‘original’. 

Eagle-eyed fans then noticed she had set up an Instagram account with the handle laulieclothing which is followed by both herself and 23-year-old boyfriend Charlie.

Lauliè would also be a fitting baby name as it’s a mashup of the parents names, Lauren and Charlie. 

Although clothing is included in the handle, no information is given in the bio of the account which states simply, ‘Lauliè’.

Although the name has been made up by Lauren, the spelling of the name does not make grammatical sense in French.  

On the letter e, the grave accent is a pronunciation marker, so should be spelled as Laulié, with the accent over the e facing the other way.

MailOnline has contacted Lauren’s representatives for comment. 

Back in February, the reality starlet revealed she has been toying with different baby names which she has invented. 

‘The baby names that I’ve thought of are something original,’ she said. ‘It’s something that I’ve made up, so yes, exciting. A couple of them are original.’

When asked later on, why she won’t just choose a ‘normal’ name, Lauren responded: ‘I choose to answer these annoying questions, but what do you mean?

‘What’s ‘normal’? You don’t even know what it is so you can’t comment on that.’ 

Last month, Lauren revealed she is expecting a baby girl as her boyfriend shared a sweet video popping their gender reveal balloon.  

Later, 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 continued: ‘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 previously said of the moniker: ‘The baby names that I’ve thought of are something original, it’s something that I’ve made up, so yes, exciting. A couple of them are original’

While finding out the gender of one’s child is usually a surprise for expectant parents, Lauren insists she knew she was expecting a girl all along – thanks to a tip from fortune tellers.

Lauren said: ‘I knew, didn’t I?! I didn’t know, but I knew. I would have been more shocked if it was a boy. When she said I was having a girl it just confirmed what I thought I knew.

‘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. 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.’
