Emotional Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas update fans after son Roman turned blue and was rushed to intensive care

LUCY Mecklenburgh has updated her fans about son Roman’s wellbeing as he returned home after a week in intensive care.

The former Towie star and fiance Ryan Thomas revealed their secret trauma in a post last night – telling how the toddler was found “blue” in his cot.

But the youngster looked happy and healthy this morning as he spent his third day at home.

Sharing a picture of the 18-month-old, Lucy told her followers:  “Thank you for all your lovely messages. 

“This is day three at home and we are just enjoying lots of special family time with our perfect boy.”

She added that her sister had made him chocolate cake, which he was enjoying for breakfast. 

Hospital dash

In a distressing post last night, Lucy described the terrifying moment she foundRoman in the cot, describing it as "every parent's worst nightmare".

Lucy said: "As some of you may have noticed we haven't been on social media lately.

"Just over a week ago I found Roman blue in his cot – probably every parent's worst nightmare.

"Without going into too much detail it ended up with ROman being transferred to St Mary's London intensive care being put on a ventilator.

"Thankfully we are now all home and Roman is back to his cheeky self."

She added: "Although mentally we as a family may never fully recover, we feel extremely blessed to have our special boy home in our arms and it has truly opened our eyes to all the hardworking superheros working in our hospitals."

Former Corrie star Ryan, who won Celebrity Big Brother, said it had been the "scariest time of their lives".

Feeling thankful

He shared a picture of him cuddling his son in hospital.

Ryan told fans: "No words can explain how grateful we are to have our little boy home safe after spending nearly a week in intensive care.

"As parents it’s been one of the scariest times of our lives but with thanks to our amazing doctors & nurses we have king Roman back playing, smiling & more importantly eating.

"I would like to thank the @nhs and also @cosmic_charity who have been unbelievable, You both really are the real life superhero’s."


Their celebrity fans rushed to send their love to the TV stars in their darkest hour.

Kate Ferdinand said: "Oh my gosh. Lots of love to you all, so glad your home."

Vicky Pattison added: "Lucy I am so sorry, I’m sending you all so much love."

The tot was born in March 2020, having lived most of his short life in lockdown.

To his famous family members, including Emmerdale's Adam Thomas and ex-Love Island star Scott Thomas, he's nicknamed "King Roman".

It's not yet clear what happened to the youngster, with his parents keen to avoid getting into detail about the horror moment he was found unresponsive.

Lucy and Ryan have launched a fundraising page for Cosmic Charity, which looks after babies and children in intensive care.

The pair have pledged to do all they can to give back to those who saved their son's life.

They've already raised £12,000. To donate, click here.
