Lucy, 30, confirmed her news to excited fans on Instagram on Monday, declaring: “Here we go again @ryanthomas84.”
But on Saturday, the fitness fan posted a throwback snap of herself lifting Roman into the air while picking out their family Christmas tree.
Lucy captioned the shot: “I’m not sure I’ll be able to lift him quite so easily this year . What a difference a year makes #christmascountdown #oneyearon #motherhood.”
The star has been inundated with messages of congratulations since announcing her latest happy news.
Ryan’s former Coronation Street co-star Catherine Tyldesley – who is also pregnant again – replied to the post: “Yeyyyyyyyyyy Huge congratulations my loves! .”
Former Corrie star Helen Flanagan added: “Ahhhhhhhh congratulations darling lucy and Ryan xxxxxxxxxx”
Lucy’s close pal and former Towie co-star Lydia Bright, meanwhile, wrote: “I can’t wait another baby Thomas .”
Other than her accidental Christmas tree slip, Lucy has managed to hide her pregnancy from fans.
The star has kept her baby bump incognito by dressing in baggy clothing and avoiding photographs of her tummy.
Last week, the ITVBe star was pictured attending the launch of Ryan’s brothers’ eatery, Oh My Glaze, at Manchester’s Old Trafford centre.

Late last month, Lucy also posted a snap of her in her kitchen promoting recipe delivery box Hello Fresh and cleverly held a freshly cooked veggie moussaka in front of her stomach.
Lucy and former Corrie actor Ryan started dating in 2017, after meeting on Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island, and got engaged in Italy two years later.
