Marnie Simpson was joined by her partner, former Union J star Casey Johnson, who carried their two year old son Rex.
Lauren spoke about the preparations for Larose on Instagram, writing: “Just wrapped @BABYLAROSE presents and my Lorena was with me in my heart the whole time with her candle lit.
“Very emotional evening for Mummy, but can’t wait to see my big girl in the morning.”
Lauren has spoken out about her recent tragedy and revealed how Lorena’s umbilical cord is thought to have been knotted twice in a “rare” turn of events which led to her death.

Knots in the cord can restrict blood flow and oxygen to the baby, and put them at risk of serious harm or in severe cases, stillbirth.
Lauren told New magazine: “No one knew about the knots in the cord, all we’ve been told is that it’s very uncommon to have two knots.
“I was a low-risk pregnancy. There was no sign of any problems. A few hours before she was born, she was going to be absolutely fine, that’s what it is so heartbreaking.”

“I’ve still got a bit of a bump, this one’s not shifting,” she explained of her recovering body after the traumatic birth of baby Lorena.
“It sometimes feels like she’s still there, it’s weird. My body feels like it’s unsettled, like it’s missing a newborn.”
