Pregnant Lucy Mecklenburgh says she’s put on two stone but is embracing new body

Heavily pregnant Lucy Mecklenburgh has offered sage advice to a fan who's also pregnant.

The fan reached out to Lucy to ask her if she had put on weight during her pregnancy, to which Lucy penned a deeply honest reply.

They asked: "How have you found putting on extra weight during your pregnancy? I hate it."

The former TOWIE star, who's expecting her first child with Corrie's Ryan Thomas , wrote back: "I've gained over 2 stone & accepted it's part of the journey.

"Weight gain is inevitable for a healthy pregnancy. Focus on you and bubba not the scales xx."

It's not the first time she's taken fans' burning questions, as she was previously asked if she and beau Ryan would be having any more kids after this one.

Lucy filmed Ryan strolling about the kitchen and put the question to him.

"Well we got one," he said, "One on the way. And then we're done."

"Noooo!" cried Lucy, "You don't mean that!"

Ryan got down on one knee in June this year, during a getaway to Italy, with Lucy announcing she was expecting in August.

Ryan's already got a daughter, 11 year old Scarlett, who he shares with ex and Corrie co-star Tina O'Brien.

The couple had fans getting all emotional after they shared a video of them telling Scarlett that she'd be getting a baby brother or sister.

The clip shows Scarlett opening a box with a balloon inside that reads: "You are going to be a big sister!"

Scarlett bursts into tears before hugging her dad and Lucy, the pregnant star laughing: "These are happy tears!"
