Charles, 24, shared the news of their split on his Instagram page last month while their daughter was in hospital battling a ‘severe illness’. Larose was later discharged from hospital.
An insider told the Sun having a baby to look after had ‘taken its toll’, but the couple are willing to give things another go.
The source said: ‘Charlie and Lauren have worked through their differences and are going to give things another go. Having a baby takes a toll on most couples, especially with Larose’s ill health. It’s back to basics for them and a fresh start.’

Their split has partially played out in public after Charles announced the news on his Instagram page last month.
Charles wrote at the time: ‘Only going to post this once. Me and Lauren have decided to go our separate ways. Things must remain civil for the sake of our daughter.
‘Lauren is a great mum so when it comes to Larose we both have her best interests at heart so she will still see us both.’

‘I do not wish to comment on the situation at this time as there is much more to it but my priority is getting my daughter better. My baby girl is the most important thing to me right now, shame I can’t say that about others.’

Lauren Goodger’s romance history
Mark Wright: 1999-2011
Lauren found fame on The Only Way Is Essex while in a on-off, 12-year relationship with ex-fiancé Mark Wright.

Their tumultuous relationship was filled with infidelity on Mark’s part, trust issues, and tensions between Lauren and his family.
The couple cut off their engagement in May 2011, just five months after his proposal, and the presenter went on to marry actress Michelle Keegan, 33, in 2015.
Lauren later revealed she had an abortion at the age of 20 after the couple decided they weren’t ready to become parents.
She told OK! in 2011: ‘I did think I was pregnant. I’m not on the pill and haven’t been for a little while, just because of my cells, not because I was planning a baby and thank God we didn’t.
‘I was late once and I think it was the stress of what was going on. I’ve been pregnant before with his baby but I chose not to have it. I was only 20. No one knows except my close family.’
Jake McLean: 2012-2016
After splitting from Mark, the media personality dated Jake McLean, 33, on and off for four years – from 2012 until May 2016 – with Lauren suffering a miscarriage during their relationship

The TV star discovered she had lost the unborn child while appearing as a contestant on ITV talent show Dancing On Ice in 2013, and later admitted she has little choice but to ‘carry on.’
Discussing the loss on Channel 5 show In Therapy in 2017, she said: ‘I was on a TV show that was quite intense. I had to try and perform when I was quite far gone. It didn’t last.’
Lauren and Jake split for the first time later that year before rekindling their romance in 2015.
Shortly after their final split in May 2016, Lauren told OK! of her former jailbird ex: ‘I fell out of love with him. I know some people say you wake up one day and things click, but that didn’t happen to me; it was a gradual thing.
‘The relationship was quite hard. I felt like I was the one doing everything and putting the effort in. I’m at the age where I’d like to have children but Jake isn’t the sort of man I’d want to do it with.’
Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years after conning his way into a mother’s house two days before Christmas in 2006, overpowering her before a masked gang ran in and raided the family home.
JOEY MORRISION: 2016-2018
The TV star struck up a relationship with another convict, Joey Morrison, but the couple went their separate ways two years later, in 2018, despite Lauren waiting for him while he served time behind bars.

Joey, 31, was given a 16-year prison sentence for a violent offence but was released after nine years – Lauren and Joey split close to his release date.
In 2019, Lauren opened up about her two year romance with Joey, who was sentenced for drug related crimes, saying: ‘My ex was my biggest mistake. I wasted two years when I could have been dating. I wish I hadn’t waited for him to come out.’
Writing previously in new! magazine of her relationship with Joey, she said: ‘I regret giving two and a half years of my life to someone who was in jail only for him to come out and not be what I thought.
‘I thought we were going to get a house, get married and have kids. I regret the time I’ve wasted.’
Charles Drury: 2020-present
In October 2020, Lauren teased she was dating a mystery man, who was soon to be identified as Charles Drury, 23.

The couple announced their expecting their first child together, just three months after going public with their relationship.
Lauren’s partner has a history of dating older women, having previously enjoyed a brief fling with former glamour model Katie Price, 42, in 2019.
