She said: "I was in bed not well with a cold and I was meant to come on that day and I’m always quite regular.
"We went and bought a test from a bargain shop and I did it - I couldn’t believe it! I rang him and he was like: 'You’re lying, you’re joking.'
"He didn’t believe the test! I did a digital one as well and he walked around with it in his bag for about three days."
The former ‘Only Way Is Essex’ star and her beau are both “really happy” with the news, and can’t wait to welcome their little one into the world this summer.
She told New magazine: "But it’s exciting and we’re really happy. It’s difficult, but we’ve just got through it."
Lauren and Charles have enjoyed a whirlwind romance, with the beauty moving him into her Essex home after just three weeks of dating.
A source said of their relationship at the time: "Charles has moved into her Essex home and they're really loved up.
"She's head over heels for him - friends can't believe how fast she's fallen for him. Everyone's hoping she's finally found The One."
And Lauren’s pregnancy comes almost eight years after she suffered a devastating miscarriage in 2013 whilst competing on ‘Dancing on Ice’.
Speaking in 2017 when she opened up on the heartbreaking loss, she said: "I was on a TV show that was quite intense. I had to try and perform when I was quite far gone. It didn't last."
