Father-of-two Ryan Thomas pulled out all the stops for his daughter Scarlett's 13th birthday as they celebrated the milestone in Manchester.

The actor shared pictures of his famous family sitting around a table at Rosso restaurant in Manchester, which was strewn with balloons.

Scarlett was joined by Ryan's fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh and half-brother Roman.

Also in attendance were the actor's brothers Scott and Adam.

Ryan captioned his photos with a crying emoji and wrote: "Happy 13th Birthday to my baby girl. My daughters a teenager."

Sitting next to a huge chocolate cake with her name on it, Scarlett, who Ryan shares with Corrie actress Tina O'Brien looked delighted.

Scarlett's uncles also joined in the celebrations (

Fans loved the gorgeous pics with one writing: "Wonderful photos to treasure. Especially love Roman looking at the cake thinking I’m this close and it’s all mine!!!"

"Gorgeous family and hope Scarlett had a fab day."

Another added: "She's so beautiful. She is Tina's double. Happy 13th birthday Scarlett x"

Ryan currently lives in Essex with Lucy and Roman, but revealed he one day wants to live in Manchester with both of his children.

Speaking on his Mancs on the Mic podcast with brothers Scott and Adam, he said: "I know I’ve got Scarlett (who) I have to keep going back and forward for…

"That puts a strain on our relationship because I’m not with her [Lucy] because I’ve gotta get back for Scarlett.

Scarlett won't forget her 13th birthday (

"There is that trying to find a mix of making both work and working out where you’re going to end.

"I think eventually I’d like to be in Manchester with both my kids, but at the moment it’s having that help at hand in London it’s just easier, but I think eventually I would love to be back where I started with all my brothers and all our kids.

"I think that’s what’ll happen eventually but we’re just taking it a day at a time. I think that’s what you’ve got to do with this family life."

Ryan, 37, surprised partner Lucy earlier this year by buying a family home in his hometown.

The former TOWIE star revealed that Ryan had bought the house in Manchester without her even seeing it.

She showed her excitement by saying they had 'new memories to be made', but did describe Ryan as a 'very brave man' for snapping up the property without getting her approval first.

The pair have since been busy renovating the pad, including ripping out all the fitted wardrobes, putting in new carpets and giving it a fresh lick of paint.
