Lauren Goodger Announces the Death of Her Newborn Baby: “I Am Broken”

The Only Method Lauren Goodger, a former cast member of Essex, is grieving the death of her infant.

The British reality actress revealed on Sunday that her second daughter, Lorena, passed away soon after giving birth. The reality star is also the mother of Larose, whom she welcomed with Charles Drury in July 2021.

Goodger, 35, posted a picture of what seems to be her daughter’s hand gripping onto her fingers on Instagram along with the caption, “Lorena R.I.P 08.07.22.”

She was identical to her sister, @babylarose.x, and was the most adorable, healthy baby I have ever seen. Goodger went on. Words are inadequate to express the pain of losing a child that you have perfectly carried for nine months and given birth to, along with having your angel snatched from you.

Despite withholding the cause of Lorena’s passing, the TV personality said, “There were no issues with her pregnancy or labor, and she was fine & healthy.”

She continued, saying that Lorena “is so incredibly lovely,” and that “there was nothing wrong with her or myself she was flawless I can’t understand it.”

She wrote, “I am broken. “I have returned from the hospital. Charlie and I spent as much time as possible with our infant daughter Lorena, and I haven’t yet said goodbye.”

Goodger said that she and Drury “have a lot of grieving to do and funeral organizing” and asked for “privacy right now.”

Larose has been her “rock” and “getting me through this or I wouldn’t survive,” she said, adding that she “just needs this time.”

The TOWIE alum ended the tragic statement by saying, “I will never ever get over this but I will learn how to live every day with Lorena in my heart.” “She will always be by my side, and one day, we will reunite. I’m Lorena. You have my undying love.”

The song “The Prayer” by Céline Dion was playing in the background as Goodger uploaded a broken-heart emoji to her Instagram Story on Tuesday.

Goodger, who also participated in the British version of Celebrity Big Brother, revealed earlier this year that she was expecting her second child.

She posted a selfie of herself carrying baby Larose in her arm while flaunting her growing baby bulge on Instagram in January, writing, “The news is out!” in the caption.

She said, “I’m having kid number two, and it’s another girl!” I’m overjoyed that Larose will have a sibling.

Goodger and Drury thanked everyone for their support after sharing the sad news of Lorena’s passing on Monday.

The messages have been “so nice,” the spokesman continued, “and even though it doesn’t take any sorrow away, it truly has helped to see how much support there is for them.”
