Pregnant Louise Thompson basically living out of a car after house fire: It’s been really tough
Louise Thompson has opened up on how she's been "basically living out of a car" after she was involved in a "devastating" house fire alongside her fiancé Ryan Libbey and her mum last week.
The former Made In Chelsea star initially revealed the news in a post shared to her Instagram story Saturday 9 October, where she explained that a wine cooler had "exploded" in the middle of the night.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the 31 year old said she has been "totally overwhelmed" by the support she has received from friends as well as messages from fans, despite the struggle to adapt to her new living situation.
Sharing an update on her Instagram page, the star, who is pregnant with her first child with Ryan, began: "I have to say I am totally overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity that people offer up when trying to help someone get through a crisis.
"I have had messages from people that I’ve met ONCE offer up their best friends, cousins, dogs, ex girlfriends, dads house in order to try to help.
"It means a lot – I feel incredibly lucky and I wish everyone could be this lucky. We’ve moved in and out of 4 different hotel/hostels over the past week and basically lived out of a car and the truth is that it’s been really tough – one of the hardest things to deal with has been the total lack of security and privacy."
Louise went on to say one of the hardest things has been spending "5 days" without her dogs because they are like "her children", and sadly aren't welcome "everywhere".
"I was so paranoid that they would be heavily traumatised by the incident because they got lost in the smoke before being rescued by Ryan but thankfully they seem to be ok and they have been impeccably looked after by Scott, Sam and Zara. A million thank yous," the TV personality went on.
"I had no idea how hard it was to find somewhere to stay on a short term basis (sadly my mums house will take YONKS to restore), so now we’re just keeping our fingers and toes crossed for our own project."
Louise explained that despite all the stress she, Ryan and the dogs have found a temporary solution to their housing crisis, and they can camp "under one roof" until the baby is born if needed.
The reality star favourite also shared with her followers that she went for another scan to check on the baby on Thursday.
Filming herself walking down the street with a white envelope in her hand, the reality star wrote: “Did a lil scan to make sure everything was ok/peace of mind as my brain is in overdrive.
“Also the baby has been going mental with movement since the incident, but I’m assured there is no such thing as too much movement.”
She then enlisted her fans for a game of guessing her baby’s weight as she enters the final weeks of her pregnancy before giving birth.
