We can't stop replaying the clip to see Ryan's reaction. He is so cute as he learns he's expecting a son, shouting happily 'It's a boy!' and punching the air then hugging Lucy. The TOWIE star then says, "I can't believe it! I knew it was. I knew, I knew, I knew." Ryan then sheds a tear and kisses Lucy's tummy. "I can't get my head around it," smiles Lucy.

The actress told followers she wasn't going to find out the baby's gender, but it looks like she was waiting to be reunited with Ryan.

The 28-year-old has been inspiring her followers with body-positive pregnancy posts since she revealed the exciting news. She previously shared a snap of her growing bump, telling her fans: "Although trying to keep this under wraps, especially whilst on holiday, really wasn’t easy, I’m now over 12 weeks and I’m starting to fall in love with and embrace my new, ever-changing, ever-expanding body. I’m in awe of what my body is doing, creating another human! I was worried with how big I got very quickly. For the first time, I feel content in myself and how I view my body. It feels like as soon as I became pregnant my priorities changed and I must admit this is definitely for the better."
