Inside Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas’ lavish 1st birthday party for son Roman

LUCY Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas threw a lavish birthday party for son Roman.

The former Towie star, 29 and the ex Corrie actor, 36, managed to mark the special day from their home despite the lockdown.

Lucy started the day desperate for her little one to wake up as she shared pictures of the set up.

At the bottom of their stars, the star set up a balloon feature made of pink, green and brown balloons.

Two teddy bears sat on a box beside the cake, which had an icing teddy bear, decorative icing and a number one on the top.

She wrote: "How is my baby boy 1. Thank you for making Romans day extra special @[email protected]_cafe"

Ryan looked the picture of pride as he posed next to the set up for a special snap on the big day.

He captioned the pic: "Where has that year gone!!? Happy 1st Birthday king Roman ❤️"

After breakfast, Roman got to play with his new toys, including a kitchen set.

He also received a birthday boy hat and a bike for his birthday.

Later on, Roman enjoyed his first taste of cake as they tucked into the sweet treats.

At the end of the day, she shared a snap of the one-year-old scoffing on cake with the caption: "Such a lovely weekend. Yes it wasn’t how I imagined Roman’s 1st birthday but it was so special I actually don’t think I would have changed anything! 💙🧸✨ we played & ate lots of birthday cake. It was perfect x"

Ryan also shared a number of tributes from his family, including a picture of his late dad holding the baby.

His brother - Love Island star Scott Thomas - shared a video of him holding his nephew with the caption "Happy 1st Birthday Neph"

Emmerdale star and their other brother Adam shared a pic of him holding up the baby as well.

He captioned it: "Happy 1st birthday Romano."

Lucy and Ryan - who also shares daughter Scarlett with his ex and former co-star Tina O'Brien - got together in 2017 after meeting on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.

The former actor proposed on a romantic Italian getaway in 2019.

Ryan Thomas says travelling to see daughter Scarlett, 12, in Manchester 'puts a strain on' relationship with Lucy Mecklenburgh
