Former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas, 35, and his wife-to-be Lucy Mecklenburgh, 28, have welcomed their son to the world, their first child together. The reality star shared the news of her birth on Instagram this evening in view of her 1.6 million followers.
She shared a black and white picture of their newborn, but ensured his face wasn’t on full display.
Lucy wrote: “Roman Ravello Thomas,” alongside two blue heart emojis.
Many of the star’s fans flocked to her page to congratulate the pair on their new arrival.
Ryan’s former co-star Samia Longchambon wrote: “Aw, so nice to hear some good news… congratulations guys!”
She told OK! Magazine: “At the start of our relationship, Ryan told me that he couldn’t see himself having any more children.
“It wasn’t something I pushed at the time because I wasn’t ready to have kids and I assumed that he would change his mind one day.
She added: “It’s something we’ve since had to have an adult conversation about and we’ve agreed we will try for children when the time is right.”
Ryan added: “I definitely want children with Lucy but I don’t think it’ll happen for a few years.”
