PREGNANT Lauryn Goodman says she unmasked footballer Kyle Walker as her baby's dad to put focus on her fertility issues.
The 29-year-old was warned by specialists she would never be able to conceive naturally because she suffered from endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.
But Lauryn shockingly discovered she was five months' pregnant during a routine trip to hospital to have a scan on a kidney problem.
After keeping her baby's dad a secret, Lauryn told The Sun on Sunday she had fallen pregnant after a brief relationship with Kyle over the summer.
She told the paper: “I am speaking out because I want to raise awareness for PCOS, endometriosis and infertility."
“I was told I would have to have IVF treatment. I was put into an early menopause at the age of 27."
"It was the hardest thing to hear, as a woman, being told you cannot fall pregnant in a way nature has intended. It really was hard to swallow."
“With that in mind, although my current situation is not ideal given my medical circumstances, having a baby naturally is the biggest miracle and blessing I could ever have been given and I am thankful everyday."
Speaking on the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire show today, Lauryn said about revealing Kyle's identity: "I thought, now we've got that out of the way, we can concentrate on what I do want to get across, which is raising awareness, giving people hope that they might be able to have a baby.
"And the amount of messages I've had from women saying it's really helped has been great – not enough people talk about this disease."
When quizzed about Kyle's future involvement with his fourth child, Lauryn said: "Me and Kyle are keeping things private in terms of our child and I want it to remain that way. I'm here to raise awareness."
She also admitted she was "nervous" about the prospect of being an only child.
"It's something I never thought I'd do," Lauryn said.
"But a lot of strong people I know are doing it really well.
"That brings hope for me. I'm fortunate enough to have a really good support network at home with my family and friends."
Kyle and Lauryn, both 29, had a brief relationship last summer after she dumped football agent Dane Rashford — brother of Manchester United striker Marcus.
Walker dated Lauryn while still living with his long-term partner Annie Kilner, 27.
But he and Annie were experiencing relationship difficulties at the time after The Sun on Sunday revealed reality TV star and model Laura Brown had claimed to have slept with the Three Lions full-back.
Manchester City full-back Kyle is already a dad to three young children with partner Annie.
after confessing to Annie that he was set to become a dad again with Lauryn, he moved out of their £3.5million mansion and is now living in a nearby flat.
