Lauren and Charles showed courage to give LaRose a happy ending after their recent family tragedy.

After the tragic death of their two-day-old daughter, they were devastated.

While the cause of the child’s death is not known, the star has stated that it was. “she was fine and healthy”.

Lauren uploaded an earlier black-and-white photograph of her holding her child’s hand.

It was accompanied by the terrible news about the baby’s death.

She wrote: “Lorena was the most beautiful healthy baby I’ve ever seen, just like her sister.

“Words can’t describe as a mother losing your baby that I carried for all these months perfectly and gave birth too for my angel to be taken from me.

“There was no pregnancy or labour complications and she was fine and healthy, but I am not going into detail right now.

“Just know that there was nothing wrong with her or myself she was perfect. I can’t understand it she is so so beautiful Larose twin so similar.”

Later, she wrote: “I will never get over it, but I will learn to live each day with Lorena inside my heart.

“She will be with me always and I will be with her again one day… My Lorena, I love you so much.”
