Former TOWIE star Lauren dated Jake for two years before they split in 2013, but earlier this year they confirmed their reconciliation with a romantic holiday to Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Now, in an interview with Daily Mail, reality star Lauren has said: "We know each other quite well now. We've definitely grown up and matured. We're in a totally different place.
"Sometimes you do feel like you need a little break to realise you want to be with each other. It can be healthy. You come back and do it properly, and that's what we've done."
But just because they are super loved up doesn't mean a wedding is on the cards just yet... Lauren tweeted last month to deny speculation she'd already been shopping for her dream dress. "Wonder what this wedding dress I've apparently chosen looks like then?! And hen do in Marbs?! Does make me laugh #SourceRubbish."
Things are serious though as Lauren recently had Jake's name tattooed on her wrist, and he had her name tattooed on his body during their initial relationship.
A source told us recently: "Lauren fell hard with Jake, she couldn't walk away from him. He's a totally new man now. She says he's showed her what true love is and that he'll still love her when she's old and wrinkly and won't ditch her for someone prettier or more famous."
