Pregnant Laura Anderson has admitted that the IVF treatment she had with ex-love Dane Bowers ‘wasn’t for her’.
Laura, 33, dated Dane, 43, for five years before they broke up last year, and she later started a relationship with Gary Lucy.
The star, who met Gary on Celebs Go Dating, announced earlier this month that she was pregnant with his child, and it was later revealed that the couple had split.
She had previously had IVF treatment with Dane, but said in response to an Instagram question from a fan who asked how she got pregnant naturally: “The IVF situation was not for me before, I just didn’t say that at the time .’
Speaking on Vicky Pattison’s podcast The Secret To, Laura candidly revealed that she didn’t want to undergo IVF before they later embarked on the process together as she struggled to conceive.

The star had been on the pill for years and explained to Vicky that they tracked her ovulation after she went off it.
She was heartbroken after their breakup, saying on Celebs Go Dating in November: ‘I think my most recent breakup was the biggest of my life because it was so serious.
‘I thought he was the one. We were trying to have a baby.’
It comes after Laura shut down any suggestion of her reconciliation with Gary in an Instagram Q&A.
When a curious fan asked her, “Any chance you and Gary could get back together?”.
Laura simply replied: ‘No’ before saying she ‘hopes once the baby arrives’ that she and the Hollyoaks actor can successfully co-parent.
This week, the couple appeared to be aiming for each other in cryptic Instagram posts after Gary said part of the reason the pair broke up had to do with location.
Laura reportedly wanted him to move to Scotland, but he said he wanted to stay in Essex to be with his four children.

But this week, Laura shared her side of the story, telling her 1.5 million followers, “I wasn’t about to comment on the breakdown of my relationship with Gary.
‘But because of what has now been shared publicly by other parties, I have no other choice.
“Gary and I are no longer together for several reasons that remain private. Our plan was for me to move to Essex to start our family, which I was more than happy to do.
‘Since the breakup of our relationship, however, I have stayed at home in Scotland. My priority is raising my baby in a calm and stable environment.
The Scottish reality star added: ‘I never asked or expected Gary to move to Scotland. I fully support that he lives in Essex to be close to his four wonderful children.
“I am completely focused on a healthy, happy pregnancy and remain excited to share this incredible journey with all of you. Thank you very much for your support! Laura, Buddy & Bump.’
Gary shared a cryptic message one day after his pregnant ex-girlfriend Laura made a thinly veiled dig at him following their shock split.
Laura lashed out at her ex saying she had chosen “peace over men” and edited her pregnancy announcement to remove any mention of Gary’s last name.
And on Monday, Gary appeared to retaliate when he took to his Instagram Stories to share a very cryptic post in which he lashed out at people who “fault others.”
He shared a quote that read, “People who spend time looking for faults in others should spend time correcting their own.”
Captioning the post, he added, “Amen to that.”

His cryptic message appeared to be in response to Laura’s thinly veiled swipe, which she shared on her Instagram just hours earlier.
The former Love Island star posted to her Instagram Stories, sharing a quote that read, “I’ve been choosing peace over people lately. No regrets so far.’
She also edited her pregnancy announcement post to remove any mention of Gary’s name, while also turning off the comments hinting that their unborn baby will now take her last name.
Their video reveal was originally titled, “Our Hearts Are Full Baby Lucy Due To Summer 23,” but was changed to, “My Heart Is Full.” Baby Anderson due summer ’23.’
