Heavily pregnant Lauren Goodger cooled off in the UK's sweltering heatwave as she enjoyed a dip in a paddling pool while planning her water birth.

The former TOWIE star, who is due at the end of the month, proved she was soon ready to pop as she showed off her bump while clad in a black bikini.

The snap taken by boyfriend Charles Drury, saw the reality star, 34, lovingly place both hands on her stomach while her beau, 23, placed his free hand on her bump.

Proving they were happier than ever, the smiling lovebirds posed for a snap as they continued to splash around in the water.


In a separate Instagram post, Lauren revealed her plans to have her first child at home, as she asked her Instagram followers for advice.

"Need to get a birthing pool. Has anyone got any recommendations? I will buy not hire," Lauren wrote.

This confirmed previous reports that she wanted a water birth from the comfort of her own home.

A source previously told new magazine : "After looking into it, she's decided she's really keen on having a water birth. She loves the idea of it.

"She thinks it looks so calming and from what she's seen on videos, the women look really relaxed. She thinks it will be the most comfortable option for her and the baby.

"Lauren has been doing a lot of research. She's a first-time mum so she's doing everything she can," the source added.

Many experts believe water births are more soothing for mother and baby and provide some natural pain relief, which is good news for Lauren as she's previously expressed her preference for drug-free labour.

"I want a completely natural birth," she explained previously. "I don't want any epidural or anything. I literally just want gas and air. The old-fashioned way. So yeah, wish me luck."

Lauren announced her pregnancy with 23-year-old boyfriend Charles in January.
