They’re the unlikely couple to come out of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ and now their relationship is stronger than ever.

After moving in together after a few months of dating, Lauren and Barry have announced just today that they’re expecting their first child together in 2017.

Speaking to New Idea magazine, the couple announced they are 18 weeks along and couldn’t be happier with the news. ‘Both of us want to have a big family,’ Lauren explained, saying Barry is already mapping out a timeline for future children.

‘We’ve both been in serious relationships and we have both wanted to be parents but the timing has never been right, I think the powers that be knew we were meant to together and threw this at us,’ the 27-year-old said.


Lauren told the magazine she ‘knew straight away’ that she was expecting, despite some negative pregnancy tests.

And when the former Hi-5 starlet told her 39-year-old retired footballer the news, his face ‘lit-up’.

However, the couple are in no rush to head down the aisle, and are reportedly just happy enjoying this time in their lives.


We wish them all the best!
