Lucy also shared a picture on her Stories, writing: ‘She’s here.’ 

Former Coronation Street star Ryan, 37, is also dad to Scarlett, 13, from his relationship with Tina O’Brien. 

Lucy previously told HELLO! Magazine that she was convinced she was pregnant with a girl, and was delighted when a scan confirmed her suspicions.  

‘I had an inkling that I was having a girl, but I was a bit more unsure than with Roman. With him I just knew – I don’t know why but even before we found out, I said: “I know, one hundred per cent, it’s a boy”, Lucy said.

The couple also revealed in the interview that they were struggling to come up with names for their daughter, explaining how they had a long list of 15 picked out but would wait until she was born to decide.

Back in March, Lucy updated fans on her son Roman’s health, revealing he has fluid in his lungs. 

She previously told how their little boy spent a week in intensive care last September after Lucy found the two-year-old ‘blue in his cot.’ 

Even though Lucy and Ryan were allowed to take him home a week after he was admitted, Roman has since been having regular check-ups, and results flagged that fluid has been entering the tot’s lungs whenever he drinks.

Admitting it was a conclusion she felt ‘really weird about’, she continued: ‘I’m sad for Roman. Now, from Monday, when we pick up the thickener, he can’t have any thin fluids for quite a long time – potentially years.

‘So no lollies and ice-creams, no water or juice. Everything has to be a really thick consistency to stop it entering his lungs.

She revealed that when she checked the baby monitor an hour later that something ‘didn’t feel right’:  

‘He was moving very slowly, side to side, and I thought, ‘This doesn’t feel right and I want to go and see him.”

It was then when she found Roman ‘blue in his cot’ and he was rushed to Basildon Hospital and St Mary’s in London. 

Speaking about the staff, Lucy got emotional as she said: ‘They absolutely were wonderful and I need to thank them and the ambulance service for arriving so promptly, for keeping my son here and it’s quite emotional actually, talking about that.’

Her son was diagnosed with a ‘viral induced wheeze’ and now requires an inhaler twice a day. 

She added: ‘I don’t know this for a fact, but Roman was born ten days before Covid and because he was kept so isolated – literally isolated for six months – he didn’t have the chance to fight off viruses.

‘When he was in hospital, the test came back that he had six viruses, so what looked to me as a snotty nose was six viruses, so that’s what his little body was having to fight and that’s potentially why he was so poorly and got to the stage of needing a ventilator. 

‘I said YES!’ Lucy and Ryan met on the Channel 4 reality series, The Island with Bear Grylls five years ago before getting engaged during a romantic holiday in Italy two years later, when Lucy was pregnant with Roman

‘But it does make you think, if he had been in a normal world at the beginning, would he have been able to fight those viruses.’ 

Lucy and Ryan met on the Channel 4 reality series, The Island with Bear Grylls five years ago before getting engaged during a romantic holiday in Italy two years later, when Lucy was pregnant with Roman.

Lucy has joked that despite their long engagement, the couple are a way off getting wed as they have had no time to organise a wedding.

Back in March, Lucy shocked her Instagram followers when she shared a snap of a set of keys, captioned: ‘New house, new project, new memories to be made.

‘@ryanthomas84 bought our new Manchester home without me viewing it he is a very brave man hahahah!!!’

Although she joked her fiance was a ‘brave man’, his risk appeared to pay off as she gushed: ‘It’s just perfect! Edwardian, tons of potential. I can’t wait to get started on the renovation!!
