“We’re going to love it so much and it will bring us closer together and we’ll be so happy. With how Lauren is with me, she likes things to be her way.

“If she says, ‘The baby can’t have this,’ I’ll be the one who sneaks it in.”

When asked if he will be a protective dad, Charles said: “Definitely. I’ve spoken to a friend who has a boy and a girl and he said it’s totally different with a girl, even from when they’re a toddler. With girls you want to be the protector.”
