Lauren Pope has given birth to a baby girl.

The 39-year-old TV star has taken to social media to announce the arrival of her second child - a baby girl named Leni Star - with her boyfriend Tony Keterman.

Lauren - whose eldest daughter Raine Anais was born in July 2020 - posted a snap of her girls on Instagram and captioned the image: "Sisters. Welcome to the world our beautiful little Leni Star. (sic)"

Prior to giving birth, Lauren underwent an External Cephalic Version.

The procedure helps to position the baby in a way that makes the birth easier.

Alongside a video clip of her baby bump covered in monitors, the former 'Only Way Is Essex' star wrote on Instagram at the time: "To my fellow breach mumma's... I had my ECV procedure a couple of days ago and it worked!

"Baby is now head down and I am so relieved! There is a small chance they can turn back before you go into labour but I'm going to stay positive and hope for the best!

"I'm not going to sugarcoat it, it isn't the most pleasant experience but if you breath deep through it and try to zone out, it is over before you know it, I think in total it was around 3/4 minutes. (sic)"

Lauren also encouraged other women who find themselves in a similar situation to follow suit.

She added: "So for anyone in the same position, hope you sees this and it helps to ease your anxieties, I felt pretty anxious in the lead up to it and I'm the biggest baby so if I can do it, you can do it!! Now just need to sit and wait for when they feel ready to make an arrival. (sic)"
