While this will be Lucy’s first child, Ryan shares a 10-year-old daughter, Scarlett, with his former Coronation Street co-star Tina O’Brien.

Lucy recently admitted that Ryan wasn’t open to having more children at the start of their relationship but eventually changed his mind.

“At the start of our relationship, Ryan told me that he couldn’t see himself having any more children,” she told OK! magazine.

“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.

“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.”
