In 2005, Lauren hosted the immensely popular dance show, So You Think You Can Dance. She left the show after one season to welcome her son, Evan.
Between 2011 and 2017, she starred as a co-host on Fox's Good Day LA show. Beyond the silver screen, Lauren has starred in a number of feature films such as The Day After Tomorrow, Fight Club and Ted 2.
After amassing an impressive fortune (thought to be $30million as of 2018), Lauren launched her very own production company, Adventure & Fellowship.
The company has produced films for Bezos Academy, Bezos Earth Fund, and Blue Origin – Bezos' aerospace company. Lauren often credits Jeff as being her biggest role model.
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal's WSJ Magazine, she explained: "Living with Jeff is like having a master class every day.
"What he's really taught me a lot about is management. Biggest pieces of advice? I hold a lot of meetings and I would talk first in a meeting, and he goes, "No, no, no. You're the boss. You talk last. You let everyone else talk so that they don't get swayed by your opinion."'
What else is Lauren working on?
Lauren is reportedly set to release a children's book called 'Flynn, The Fly Who Flew,' later this year. Her beau Jeff has been with her every step of the way. Speaking to WSJ magazine, she said: "We love to be together, and we love to work together. He's helping me with the book. He's getting his pilot's license. We fly together. We work out together. We're together all the time."
Aside from her glittering TV career, Lauren is also a helicopter pilot. She got her licence in 2016 and has been putting it to good use whilst working at her aerial film and production company.
Speaking to THR, Lauren gushed: "I want to be in a helicopter all the time. Life can be so chaotic with so much going on. Lift off and you're in an energy space that no one else is in. It's calming. When I'm up there, I'm completely satisfied. I'm like, 'This is where I need to be.'"
