Now a certified couple, Lewis asked Lauren to be his girlfriend in the series finale of TOWIE last night (30 July).
Lewis referred to Lauren as his girlfriend in a discussion with Danielle Armstrong and James Lock about Lauren and Danielle's row at the launch party for Danni's boutique last week.
Telling the girls the tension between them had made things awkward for himself and James, Lewis said he was "disappointed" with how things went down between the pair.
"You both need to think how we feel because we're good friends. And whatever your argument is it's not worth me and [James] falling out", he said.
Slipping in the 'girlfriend' bomb, Lewis said: "Bottom line is your sticking up for your girlfriend, I'm sticking up for mine, but we don't want to fall out over it. So girls, have a day off from it please."
After both couples went their separate ways, smooth operator Lewis brought up the fact he had called Lauren his girlfriend.
Saying to Lauren, "I think I called you my girlfriend there didn't I?", Lewis cheekily added, "Would you like to be?".
When Lauren said to Lewis "Is that you asking?", Lewis then asked her again properly and the Essex beauty replied "I would love to be your girlfriend."
Sealing their romance with a kiss, the smitten pair looked more than happy to make things official.
Clearly quite taken with her beau, after watching the show back Lauren tweeted "How could a girl resist? #towie", along with a smiley face.

Aww you guys!
And there must have been something in the Essex water at the Grease-themed 'do as the loved up TOWIE gang just couldn't help puckering up.
As Chloe Sims and Elliott Wright's relationship goes from strength to strength, an emotional Elliott told Chloe he loved her as he heads back to Spain for a month to see his children. Telling Chloe he would find it odd not spending everyday with her, Elliott insisted his girlfriend could visit him in Spain for as long as she wants while he is away.
Meanwhile, James 'Arg' Argent pulled out all the stops as he finally managed to win over ex girlfriend Lydia Bright.
Knowing the way to a girl's heart, Arg gave Lydia a pair of shoes before recreating the moment they first said 'I love you' to each other.
What a romantic!
