Lucy Mecklenburgh might have regretted putting her fans' questions to her other half Ryan Thomas when he declared a wedding was off the agenda and he didn't want any more kids!

The former TOWIE star invited fans to a Q&A session on Instagram and decided to get her straight-talking fiancé involved.

Chatting to Ryan, who she'd disguised with a fetching Baby Yoda filter, Lucy read out the questions as he relaxed on the sofa beside her eating ice cream from the tub.

The fitness guru, who shares seven month old son Roman with Ryan, asked: "Do you think, we'll have any more kids?" to which he bluntly replied: "How can I put this politely? No."

A clearly gutted Lucy responded: "Oooh but you love your two kids", referring to his son Roman and also daughter Scarlett from his relationship with his former Corrie co-star Tina O'Brien.

"I love my kids very much but I love my sleep also," Ryan replied.

There was more disappointment in store when Ryan, who proposed to Lucy after whisking her to Italy last June, added there was no rush to walk down the aisle.

"I think it's a bad time to organise a wedding, don't you?" he grumbled when Lucy relayed another follower's query.

Making matters worse, when Lucy conceded: "Yes, bit uncertain times isn't it" the former Corrie star quipped: "Great way to get out of it."

It's not the first time Ryan has shut down the idea of expanding their family, much to Lucy's dismay.

In another Insta Q&A session when Lucy was still pregnant last November, he declared they'd be 'done' once the baby had arrived.

"Noooo. You don't mean that," Lucy cried as Ryan can be heard in the background saying, "Done. Done, darling."

Ryan recently admitted that he and Lucy, who met while filming Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls in 2017, had struggled adjusting to life with a newborn during lockdown.

“I’m not gonna say I was perfect from the start – I was trying to work it out. We’d gone from me and her to a baby and I was trying to change to a total new dynamic of a family,” he said

However, despite his comments, Ryan was full of praise for Lucy and her fellow mums out there.

"Mamas, you're doing an incredible job," he said. "I never understood or appreciated the hard work that goes into being a mummy."

"Not only giving birth that I know for a fact men could never do… the whole lot. They are the super heroes"

"I love you darling, you're incredible," he finally gushed to Lucy, who replied: "I love you too baby."
