Lauren Goodger has posted a heart-wrenching tribute following the death of her baby.

The star of ITV2 reality show The Only Way Is Essex, made the heartbreaking announcement on Sunday after daughter, Lorena passed away shortly after the birth.

Lauren wrote: "Words can't describe as a mother losing your baby,” before posting a link to A Mother's Prayer by Celine Dion on her Instagram story.

Over a broken heart emoji, the lyrics read: "Lead her to a place, guide her with your grace, to a place where she'll be safe."

Lorena is the star’s second child with boyfriend Charles Drury.

Lauren announced the sad news on Sunday in an Instagram post saying that she would not “go into detail right now” over her daughter’s death, but that there was “nothing wrong with her”.

She added: “Lorena R.I.P 08.07.22 she was the most beautiful healthy baby I’ve ever seen just like her sister @babylarose.x.”
