LAUREN Goodger has shared her joy after her best friend asked her to be godmother to her child.
The former Towie star took to Instagram to reveal the exciting news – saying that she loves her pal’s children like they’re her own.
Sharing a photo of herself with Jodie Wheeler at swanky London restaurant Melin, Lauren wrote: “She asked me to be godmother.. I love them like my own!
“My bestie @jodiewheelerx .
“Thank you @melinrestaurant for a beautiful evening.”
The star was quickly inundated with well-wishes from her followers, with one writing: “Awww soooo lovely, congrats hun – you will be amazing.
Another added: “Congratulations Lauren!!”
Lauren and Jodie have been close friends for years, with Jodie even featuring in Lauren’s episode of Channel 5 series In Therapy last year.
Jodie expressed her concerns over her best friend’s then-relationship with jailbird Joey Morrison.

The worried pal said at the time: “He’s very controlling, he wants her to do things she wouldn’t do for somebody else.
“But she likes that. He’s a bad boy and he gives off this bad boy image – he’s a good looking boy and he’s in prison.”
Lauren was forced to defend her relationship, insisting at the time that Joey does not control her.
However, she split from him just months later – with the star confirming the break-up in an Instagram video where she insisted that she and Joey were still friends.
