Lauren Goodger is hoping that she and her boyfriend Joey Morrison can get back together when he's released from prison
Lauren Goodger is hoping to get back together with her boyfriend when he's released from prison.
The former 'Only Way is Essex' star recently confirmed that she'd split from her jailbird beau Joey Morrison, whom she'd been dating for 15 months, but it looks like there's unfinished business between the pair as she's praying that they rekindle their romance when he's no longer locked up.
A source told new! magazine: "They're still speaking, but not just as regularly.
"She keeps telling her friends never say never to them getting back together. She still wants his babies, so it wouldn't be a shock if they gave their relationship another go when he gets out."
The 30-year-old beauty revealed that she'd split from Joey - who was convicted for a string of offences, including possession of a firearm, kidnapping, blackmail and actual bodily harm - via a video message posted on her Snapchat account last week but confirmed they're still friends.
She said: "There's been a lot of speculation and claims recently about me and Joey about my weight and our relationship.
"We haven't been together for a few months now and I haven't said anything until now as I don't have to explain my every move and should be allowed to deal with things in my own time. My antics out and about recently are because I am single and enjoying myself with my friends.
"Me and Joey are still speaking, and we're good friends as nothing happened to make us fall out. I wanted to put it into my own words so it can't get twisted and also because of all the 'sources' out there and people saying stuff.
"Joey will be home in not too long hopefully and I will see him as we've been through this last year and half together and have a friendship and respect for each other. He's helped me a lot just as I've been there for him so of course we'll remain friends. #always #love #respect #bond. (sic)"
It comes after Lauren admitted she was "having doubts" about her relationship with Joey.
Her spokesperson said in July: "Lauren and Joey haven't officially broken up, but Lauren is questioning her relationship and having doubts. It's not easy being with someone who is in prison especially with all the scrutiny and speculation. She loves Joey deeply but she needs time to work out if this relationship has legs and whether it will all be worth it in the end."
