Ryan and Lucy revealed they were expecting their first child together on August 24. 

Lucy admitted the first three months of her pregnancy weren’t easy; “My journey hasn’t been plain sailing. The first three months have been pretty brutal and quite lonely as you can’t really talk about it and feel like you're lying to everyone constantly.

However, the expectant-mum is feeling confident about her body, “For the first time I feel content in myself and how I view my body. It feels like as soon as I became pregnant, my priorities changed and I must admit this is definitely for the better.”
