The couple had a massive year last year, after announcing their engagement in June and Lucy's pregnancy in late August.

In September, they shared a video of the moment they found out they were expecting a boy.

The footage shows the couple sitting in a cafe, with the printed-out version of the gender confirmation in Lucy's hand.

"Shall I read it to you?" the 28-year-old asks him, before starting to scan through the papers.

Ryan is seen rubbing his hands together excitedly, before Lucy confirms they are expecting a baby boy - which causes him to burst into laughter.

"It's a boy," he shouts excitedly, before continuing the celebrations.

Lucy and Ryan announced they were expecting their first child together in late August - on the former TOWIE star's 28th birthday, to be exact.

The photo shows the pair sitting in front of a bunch of silver and gold balloons, as they hold up a baby grow.

"Best birthday present I’ve ever had. Love you," Lucy captioned the photo.

Roman is Mecklenburgh's first child. Thomas shares a daughter, Scarlett, with his ex Tine O'Brien.
