Lauren, who recently revealed she's planning a water birth, discovered the news at a private scan, but confesses she thought they had made a mistake as she thought she saw something extra in her hospital scan.

She explains: “The private scan is real but when you go to the hospital scan [at 20 weeks] they check everything is how it should be and check everything in depth.

“I kept saying, ‘Is it definitely a girl?’ And she [the nurse] said, ‘I haven’t checked that bit yet.’
