Lauren Goodger tragically lost her second baby Lorena shortly after she was born last month, and now she said she's received a 'sign' from her late daughter.
The Only Way is Essex star, 35, shared a photograph of a feather on her Instagram stories that she simply captioned: "thank u."
Feathers are viewed by many as a sign from people who have passed away.
The tragic post comes after Goodger wrote on Instagram stories that she had longed for the day she would get to meet her late daughter.
She wrote: "I carried you, felt you grow. Longed for the day we'd meet. Dreamed of your future. Not only did I know you, I fell in love with you."
While Goodger initially didn't know why Lorena passed away, it later emerged that there were a number of complications during her labor.
Namely, two large knots in Lorena's umbilical cord, which she was tragically born with around her neck.
While medics worked tirelessly in a bid to save her, they were sadly unsuccessful, and Goodger said that she doesn't 'doesn't blame anyone' for the tragedy.
The heartbreaking sign comes after Goodger initially revealed that her baby had passed away in a heartbreaking Instagram post.
She wrote at the time that she 'can't understand' how things went so wrong following the birth on Friday (8 July), explaining that she thought 'there [were] no pregnancy or labour complications'.
Goodger wrote: "She was fine & 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... [sic]
"I am broken."
Describing her daughter in more detail, she continued: "She was the most beautiful healthy baby I’ve ever seen just like her sister @babylarose.x … 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."
As a result of the tragedy, the reality star said that if she ever has another child, she will now opt for a C-section.
"If I was ever going to have another baby - I can’t even think of that right now… I would just go for a C-section," she said. "I can't go through that again. I just can't."
