Lauryn Goodman, the sister of CBB star Chloe, appeared to confirm her pregnancy as she displayed her growing bump on a Barbados beach on Sunday.

The Instagram star, 29, donned a tiny green bikini as she soaked up the sun alongside pregnant Ex On The Beach star Melissa Reeves in an outing that comes shortly after her pregnant sister Chloe’s gender reveal bash. 

Her Caribbean jaunt comes just eight months after she avoided jail on April 4 following her admission that she was involved in a £21,000 benefit fraud.

Lauryn has yet to announce her pregnancy yet when she was spotted out with her sisters Chloe – who is expecting her first child – and Amelia in December, she was donning an oversized coat and body-covering scarf.

She left very little to the imagination in her green bikini, which just about covered her cleavage while the low-slung bottoms displayed her belly.   

Despite her influencer status, Lauryn’s Instagram activity has been extremely sparse of late – with her last post being in September and the one prior in August. 

Chloe and Lauryn are no doubt delighted to be welcoming their first children at the same time, making the unborn cousins very close in age.

Back in April, it was revealed that Lauryn had claimed housing benefit and income support for three years despite having other streams of income. 

Hove Crown Court heard how she spent the money on a £3,500 trip to Las Vegas and a skiing trip to upmarket French resort Les Arcs, both accompanied by her sister.

Lauryn, who describes herself as a social media influencer and runs a beauty blog, wept in the dock as she was told the swindle was serious enough for her to be jailed.

Hove Crown Court was told Lauryn had lied when she had filled in application forms for income support and housing benefit.

The social media star, who has more than 60,000 followers, was handed a seven-month suspended sentence and ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.

She claimed £21,007.76 but did not tell the the Department for Work and Pensions that she had other income from an insurance policy, several different bank accounts and a joint mortgage with her mother on a house in Portslade, Brighton.

The court heard she wrongly claimed the money between 2013 to 2016. Piers Power, prosecuting, said that when she was interviewed in February 2017 she claimed the bank accounts belonged to her mother and she had no access to them.

He told the court she claimed her ISA containing a large sum of money belonged to her father and added she had ‘no interest’ in the property in Portslade.

Investigators found an undeclared bank account and discovered payments for a ski holiday in the upmarket French resort of Les Arcs.

The court heard Lauryn also ran a fashion firm, Nineteen Clothing, but she told investigators it no longer existed. It has since ceased trading. Lauryn pleaded guilty to seven offences relating to the benefits fraud at an earlier hearing.
