Lauren has spoken about the complications she suffered during her pregnancy with their first child, now two. 

She said at the time: "In the beginning of this pregnancy, we had complications and weren't sure if it was going to carry through.

"It was just first trimester complications that passed, but I didn't completely connect with my baby until I got later into my second trimester, because I didn't know what was going to happen."
