Ex TOWIE Star Lucy Mecklenburgh And Former Coronation Street Actor Ryan Thomas are Expecting their First Child Just Months After Engagement

A birthday celebration with a baby announcement. The celebrity world is left stunned.

No friend or family member was alert about what was to come from reality TV star Lucy Mecklenburgh and her fiancée Ryan Thomas until Lucy celebrated her birthday with Ryan and publicized their big secret.

The pair stunned their celebrity friends with the news that they managed to keep secret, and even many of their loved ones didn't realize the deal until the Instagram post. Lucy celebrated her 28th birthday with Ryan and indirectly announced that they were expecting their first baby together after only a month of their engagement.

The former 'TOWIE' star showed off her blossoming baby bump in a tight-fitting floral printed red dress as she held a white baby gown as a gift from Ryan.

As soon as the picture came out, fans and friends alike were left flabbergasted by the news and quickly congratulated them on their new member set to arrive in the coming months. Even Ryan's brother Adam was in the dark as he exclaimed how happy he was about becoming an uncle.

Former co-stars and peers messaged the couple, who were engaged a few weeks back on a romantic trip to Italy after two years of dating. Lydia Bright (who is also pregnant with her first child), Amber Dowding and Courtney Green were among Lucy's friends while Catherine Tyldesley, who was Ryan's 'Corrie' mate, congratulated the pair.

Although it is Lucy's first child, Ryan, 35, has a daughter, Scarlett, from his previous relationship with Tina O'Brien.

The duo already had opened up about their plans to start a family during an interview with OK! Magazine. Despite Ryan's statements suggesting the baby won't happen for a few years, he was not backing out of baby thoughts. He was even sure he couldn't see himself having any more children. But Lucy must have changed all that for them to come this far.

Lucy and Ryan started dating since 2017 after they met as participants in 'Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls'. Lucy shared a picture, on Instagram, of them standing together on a balcony touching noses as she flashed her engagement ring at the camera.

The couple has not set a date for their nuptials yet. They are kind of busy most times, but Lucy revealed she can't wait to start planning for it via her Instagram story.
