Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas’ toddler son was hospitalised this weekend as his worried dad thanked medical staff for their care.
Reality star Lucy, 30, and soaps actor Ryan, 38, share two children together: son Roman, two, and baby daughter Lilah Rae, who was born in May.
The couple have previously shared several frightening moments with their eldest child as he was hospitalised multiple times in recent months, including for fluid in his lungs.
Just last month the couple rushed their son to hospital as he needed help fighting off a virus with steroids, antibiotics and a nebuliser, however Lucy later shared that he was doing well.
Now Roman has been hospitalised again as his dad Ryan shared an update on social media.
Taking to Instagram, the Coronation Street star shared a snap of Roman lying in a hospital cot and reaching out for his hand.
He wrote: ‘Me & little man have unfortunately been in this situation many time before but this weekend we spent 24hrs in a hospital away from home (sic).’
He went on to thank the medical staff at The Cumberland Infirmary ‘fir the hard work [and]dedication in making sure we get the best care possible.
‘Me & my boy are home safe because of you. We are truly grateful.’
The couple’s youngest child, five-month-old Lilah, was also hospitalised in August as she required oxygen after becoming ‘really poorly’ and struggling to breathe.
Towie star Lucy shared that their daughter had been diagnosed with bronchiolitis, a chest infection that generally affects babies and children under the age of two.
‘Lots of messages asking where I’ve been for five days,’ she wrote on Instagram at the time.
‘Unfortunately Lilah got really poorly with Bronchiolitis so we have had a few days in hospital.’
She said Roman had caught a bad cough which Lilah then picked up, and within days she was ‘coughing and choking on milk and her saliva.’
‘In hospital she needed some oxygen and was tube fed for a couple of days,’ she explained, before adding that Lilah was now home and doing well.
The couple welcomed their second child together in May, announcing the news with a black and white photograph of the baby’s fingers in front of a rabbit inscribed with the words ‘Baby Thomas’.
Lucy and fiancé Ryan have been in a relationship since 2017 after meeting on Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls.
Ryan, who played Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street from 2000 until 2016, proposed during a holiday in Italy in June 2019.
