Congratulations are in order for Lucy Mecklenbugh and Ryan Thomas who have welcomed their first child!
The former Towie star, 28, announced the happy news on Instagram, sharing a photo of their baby boy and revealing his sweet name: Roman Ravello Thomas.
In the black and white picture, little Roman could be seen clinging on to his mother's finger as he lay in a cosy looking baby-gro.
Former Coronation Street star, 35, Ryan is yet to speak out publicly on the new arrival.
Lucy and Ryan, who are engaged to be married, revealed they were expecting their first child together in August 2019.
The couple met in May 2017 when they both starred in Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island, reportedly only having eyes for one another while filming.
Rumours that they were an item soon surfaced when the pair separately posted photos from what looked like the same holiday - a fact that was seemingly confirmed when they were papped rolling suitcases side by side in a Greek airport.
Lucy and Ryan first went public with their romance in July 2017 when they attended Wimbledon, with Lucy posting a photo of them holding hands.
She later told Fabulous magazine: "It's no secret that we've been on holiday together, and I've had a really lovely time. Life's good. It's really early days. If it's OK with you, I'd like to leave it at that."
Later that year, Ryan introduced Lucy to his 10-year-old daughter Scarlett, who he shares with ex Tina O'Brien.
In 2018, Ryan became the winner of Celebrity Big Brother after a controversial series saw soap star Roxanne Pallett accuse him of repeatedly punching her. At the time, Lucy shared supportive posts about her boyfriend.
In June of that year, Ryan asked Lucy to marry him during a romantic holiday to Italy. She shared the news on Instagram, with the words: "I SAID YES."
Adorably, Lucy found out she was pregnant on the same day as best friend and former TOWIE co-star Lydia Bright.
The former TOWIE star gave birth to a baby girl on Friday 21st February and shared the first image of her daughter on Instagram.
Sharing a photograph of her daughter's teeny hand, Lydia, 30, wrote: "My darling girl has arrived. I am so overwhelmed with love, she is absolutely perfect."
In the beautiful snap, the newborn can be seen clutching Lydia's thumb.
