Lauryn Goodman on Saturday revealed the father of her “miracle” love child is England footballer Kyle Walker, The Sun reported.

The Sun reported last month the model was expecting a baby with a Premier League ace, and she has now said that the dad is Manchester City fullback Walker, who will become a father for the fourth time when she gives birth soon.

Lauryn, who had been told she could not get pregnant naturally, spoke out after internet trolls bombarded her with messages asking, “Who’s the daddy?”

“I want to set the record straight because I am getting inundated with messages asking who the father is,” she told The Sun on Sunday.

“I have been harassed and it is causing me stress in the third trimester of my pregnancy. Rumours and gossip are starting to circulate and I’d rather people heard it from the horse’s mouth so I want to stop all the speculation once and for all.

“Kyle Walker and I are expecting a baby in April and it was conceived during a period we had both split from our previous partners. This will be the last time I comment on it and I will only be sharing the positive journey going forward.”

Walker and Goodman, both 29, had a brief relationship last summer after she dumped football agent Dane Rashford — brother of Manchester United striker Marcus. Walker dated Goodman while still living with his long-term partner Annie Kilner, 27.

But he and Kilner were experiencing relationship difficulties at the time after The Sun revealed reality TV star and model Laura Brown had claimed to have slept with the Three Lions fullback.

Last April, Brown, 30, messaged Kilner and alleged she and Walker had slept together numerous times after meeting in a Manchester nightclub in September 2018.

He moved into an AU$15,400-a-week city centre flat before returning to the $6.76 million mansion he and Kilner shared with their three young children.

But after confessing to Kilner he was set to become a dad again with Brown, he moved out and is now living in a nearby flat.

The Sun had told Goodman was expecting the child with a mystery footie star after she was pictured with a baby bump on the beach in Barbados.

The older sister of the 2015 Celebrity Big Brother housemate, Chloe Goodman, later confirmed the pregnancy on Instagram, calling it her “little miracle”.

Goodman said specialists had warned her she would never be able to conceive naturally because she suffered from endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.

“I was told I would have to have IVF treatment. I was put into an early menopause at the age of 27,” she said.

“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.

“I am speaking out because I want to raise awareness for PCOS, endometriosis and infertility.

“I have had a lot of women reach out to me to share their stories and to say how my pregnancy has given them hope that one day they too can have their own miracle baby.

“I’m so excited for the new journey which lies ahead for me and our baby.”

The Sun understands ex-fashion boss Goodman found out she was pregnant in November during a routine trip to hospital to have a scan on a kidney problem. It means the baby was conceived last July.

Goodman, of Hove, East Sussex, is now preparing for her baby’s birth in April.

She is surrounded by the support of Goodman, also due to have a baby with QPR footballer Grant Hall in May, her other sister Amelia plus her parents.

“I’m from a really traditional, respectable family so I was really scared to tell my dad because he’s got old fashioned values, ‘got to have a boyfriend etc’,” she added.

“But when I told him the circumstances, he understood and said, ‘Knowing everything you’ve been through, this is a miracle baby and a gift from God’. Chloe and I are both going through similar pregnancies so she has been a great support to me.

“We are both due within a few weeks of each other so we’re looking forward to helping each other and Amelia is really excited to become an aunt as well.”

Walker met Kilner when she was 16 and he was an 18-year-old at his hometown club Sheffield United.

At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, she was pictured cheering on the Three Lions in the stands alongside Rebekah Vardy, wife of striker Jamie.
