Pregnant Lucy Mecklenburgh pulls up her pyjama top to show off her growing baby bump

LUCY Mecklenburgh has showed off her growing baby bump in a sweet snap with her son Roman.

The pregnant 30-year-old is expecting her second child with ex Corrie star Ryan Thomas.

Yesterday she shared the first scan photo of her baby telling fans it was the "best first photo of 2022".

She wrote on Instagram: "I’m not going to lie I wasn’t overjoyed with getting a scan app for jan 1st 9am.

"But let’s face it with a toddler I’d be up anyway and I wasn’t going to be hungover.

"It turned out to be the most special gift to start the new year! Knowing my baby is healthy, growing and safe in my tummy."

It comes after Lucy lost her battle with her neighbours to transform her two-bedroom bungalow into a dream £1.5million home.

She wanted to add a roof extension, a first floor front extension and a new front porch to the property she shares with her fiance, but her proposal was thrown out by Basildon Council.

Last month the former Towie reality star went away to Abu Dhabi with fiance and their son Roman.

She revealed in November that they are expecting their second child together, saying: "Here we go again."

Posing at a waterpark wearing a bikini, she showed off the bump with all the slides in the background.

Lucy and actor Ryan, 37, had been staying at the St Regis Hotel on Saadiyat Island.

She posted a tray of massive pastry treats telling fans: "My pregnancy cravings are very happy right now."

The family also visited the Emirates Park zoo, where Roman got to feed a giraffe.

Later that night, former Corrie star Ryan revealed he and Lucy had an almost perfect evening at dinner, saying: "Everything was going so smoothly, he was asleep, we'd taken him up to the room.

"He was still asleep. We changed his nappy, put his pyjamas on, still asleep. Lucy went to get changed and I put him down in his cot."

But Ryan revealed that Lucy then accidentally turned on every light in the room – waking up Roman! Laughing, he said: "Roman started screaming!"

Lucy became a mum to Roman, now 19 months, with her partner Ryan, 37, in 2020.

The couple was faced with “every parent’s worst nightmare” in September, when Lucy found Roman turning blue in his cot.

He was rushed to Basildon Hospital near their Essex home before being transferred to London's St Mary’s Hospital and put on a ventilator.

Thankfully, after his viral-induced wheeze, Roman is doing well, but now uses an inhaler twice a day to help his breathing.
