‘I CAN’T WAIT TO BE MRS MORRISSON!’
With her jailbird beau reportedly released from prison, Lauren Goodger is getting set to start their new life together – and has even bought him an extravagant engagement gift…
She confirmed her relationship with her jailbird boyfriend, Joey Morrisson, was back on when she showed off a personalised number plate brandishing his name last month.
And we can reveal that lovestruck Lauren, 31, has already splashed the cash on a whopper engagement present, despite not actually being engaged!
‘Lauren has gone all out and bought Joey a gold Rolex watch to match hers, as both an engagement present and a “get out of jail” present,’ says a source close to the former TOWIE star.
A gold Rolex can cost anything from £10,000 to upwards of £50,000 – but Lauren isn’t afraid to dig deep for her man, who has served nearly 10 years in prison for a string of offences, including possession of a firearm.
‘She’s telling everyone she can’t wait to be Mrs Morrisson,’ says the insider. ‘She has all these elaborate plans for the two of them.
‘She wants them to get his and her tattoos, is telling everyone they’ll get a blue French bulldog, and she’s even planning on whisking him away on a luxurious sunshine break.’
Worryingly, pals say Lauren – who in March was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger which Joey gave to her in 2016 – is paying for everything and is happy to fund Joey’s lifestyle to help him get back on his feet. She is even hoping to turn him into a celebrity in his own right.
‘Lauren has told everyone that they will have the dream life and family,’ says the source.
‘She’s hoping to get her own reality TV show with Joey, and have cameras follow them through their life starting out together.
‘She says she would give up fame for Joey, but that he’s up for learning the ropes. And she thinks they will kill it as a celebrity couple – they’re not boring and all egos like some couples she can think of.’
Last year, Lauren talked about the anticipation of sleeping with her man.
‘I feel like I’m a teenager again, and I’m nervous that I’ve forgotten what to do in the bedroom,’ she confessed. ‘There’s been so much chemistry build-up, it’s going to be amazing.’
Now she has the chance to have Joey all to herself for the first time – and friends say she plans to make the most of it!
‘Lauren has told everyone she is planning to have her own lockdown with Joey,’ says our insider. ‘She jokes that he’ll be her prisoner now.’
In February, Lauren declared, ‘I’ve wanted a baby for so long, and 2018 is the year it’s finally happening.’
And it seems she’s already planning her pregnancy, as we’re told, ‘She is taking her folic acid in baby preparation, and is in peak condition to fall pregnant.
‘She is telling everyone she will be pregnant by the end of the year, latest.’
