It comes after the happy couple, who got engaged in Italy’s Amalfi Coast in June, announced the happy news with fans on Saturday night.

In a recent interview with OK! magazine, the couple confirmed plans to start a family, despite Ryan previously saying he didn’t want anymore children.
Speaking about future plans, Lucy said at the time: “At the start of our relationship, Ryan told me that he couldn’t see himself having any more children.
“It wasn’t something I pushed at the time because I wasn’t ready to have kids and I assumed that he would change his mind on day.
“It’s something we’ve since had to have an adult conversation about and we’ve agreed we will try for children when the time is right.”
Ryan added: “I definitely want children with Lucy but I don’t think it’ll happen for a few years.” .
The pregnancy news comes after Lucy revealed she and Ryan won’t live together after they get married.
Answering question on an Instagram Q&A with fans, Lucy explained: “We will always have 2 homes north and south. It works well for us right now and we don’t see it changing anytime soon.”
Lucy and Ryan met after both appearing on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls together in 2017.
However, Ryan previously told OK! magazine he had his eye on her “for about three years”.
The couple confirmed their romance in July 2017 after months of speculation.
