Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas announce arrival of baby girl: Lucy Mecklenburgh announced the arrival of her baby daughter on Tuesday. She posted the news on Instagram along with a black and white snap of the baby’s hand. Lucy and Ryan Thomas have not yet announced the name of the baby.
Several fans and co stars of Lucy including Jessica Wright and Samantha Faiers posted congratulatory messages on Lucy’s handle. Incidentally, these had babies recently.
The baby girl is Lucy and Ryan’s second child and they already have a son named Roman aged 2 years. Ryan has a child named Scarlett aged 13 from his ex Tina O Brien. In one of her earlier interviews to a magazine, Lucy had mentioned that she was somehow convinced that it would be a girl this time. She also said that she was excited to get the confirmation during scan.
The couple also said in an interview that they are finding it difficult to come up with the best name for their baby girl. They have shortlisted about 15 names so far and they just wanted to wait until the baby was born.
Lucy had a difficult time in March this year when her son Roman had fluid in his lungs. The little boy spent about a week in ICU at that time. The fluid was getting accumulated in the lungs whenever the little boy had any liquid. She said that the diet of the baby had to be very strict and even water and juice were restricted. All the food items had to be very thick so that it does not get into the lungs easily.
Lucy has been vocal about the health issues of her son and informed that they are close to finding the solution for the problem. The situation is difficult as lungs can collapse in extreme cases when too much fluid builds up in them.
Lucy mentioned that she had once found her son blue in the bed after he was not able to breathe properly due to fluid buildup in the lungs. Interestingly, her son was born during the Covid pandemic.
Lucy met Ryan during the Channel 4 reality TV series titled The Island with Bear Grylls in 2017. They got engaged in 2019 in Italy when Lucy was pregnant with her first child. However, she had joked that they are not getting enough time to have a proper wedding even after getting engaged. The couple got a lot of congratulatory messages on social media after they announced the arrival of their second child.
