The former 'Only Way is Essex' star has taken to Instagram on Tuesday (31.05.22) to announce she and fiance Ryan Thomas have welcomed their little girl into the world.

Lucy shared a black and white photo of the baby's hand on her page, which was captioned with heart emojis, and on her Instagram Story she shared the same picture along with the caption: "She's here".

Ryan - who also has two-year-old son Roman with Lucy, and daughter Scarlett, 13, with former partner Tina O'Brien - has yet to share any photos on his own account.

The couple have yet to reveal the name of the baby, but back in February, the pair - who met during filming of ‘The Island With Bear Grylls’ - admitted they had been struggling to agree on a moniker for their tot.

Lucy previously said: "With Roman we named him as soon as we found out we were having a boy. I remember we looked at a list and we both pointed to the same name.

"But this time, we have a list of 15 names. We may just have to wait to meet her.

"Nothing in the world beats that moment when you hold your baby for the first time."

The 30-year-old fitness guru described motherhood as a “whole new kind of love”.

Lucy said: "You experience this whole new kind of love, and they are your world. Nothing else really matters."

However, she had a new set of “lonely” circumstances, becoming a mother just weeks before the nation went into lockdown to fight COVID-19.

She said: "Being a new mum can be a very lonely place anyway, and then take away your mum popping in for a cup of coffee or going for a walk with a friend.

To connect to others, Lucy took to social media to find out she was “not alone”.

She shared: "I'd put up Stories at 4am about feeding and I'd get mums messaging me back. It was a way to know you are not alone. That is how motherhood is: we are all in it together."
