Lauren carried her essentials in a Louis Vuitton crossbody bag while she added black ankle boots to her look.

Despite the low-key outing, the TV personality ensured she looked her best as she sported blow-dried hair and a sleek palette of make-up.

The mum-to-be appeared in great spirits as she flashed a dazzling smile and waved as she headed to collect her meal. 

It comes as it’s been reported that Lauren is considering a water birth rather than the conventional alternative of giving birth in a hospital bed.

Lauren thinks having a water birth would help her have the ‘calmest labour for herself and her baby’. 

A water birth is when the pregnant woman is in a birthing pool filled with warm water for at least part of their labour, delivery, or both. 

It can take place in a hospital or at home with medical staff on hand to help the woman deliver their baby.  

Lauren, who is 20 weeks pregnant, took to Instagram stories to ask mums who have had a water birth what their experience was like.

She also responded to criticism regarding her decision to share her private life online, as she teased a potential return to reality TV.  

Lauren said: ‘[I] Found it quite difficult for the first three months. It’s just over as well and it’s just starting to get better so yeah, just tired still, but not the sickness.’

Later on, she elaborated on her feelings of nausea: ‘I felt very, very sick but wasn’t actually sick all the time. I have been sick a few times, or just had the feeling, I would rather have been sick because it’s a mental release.’
