Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed the “unexpected surprises” of her pregnancy as she enters the third trimester.

Lucy posted stunning photos of herself in a bikini to her Instagram page.

She captioned the post: “Hello 3rd trimester! Pregnancy is truly magical but comes with a lot of unexpected surprises!

“Cellulite, back pain, hormones @ryanthomas84, shortness of breath, pins and needles, stretch marks, spots, a lot more sensitive to the sun, the struggle to out your shoes on, the fear of sneezing, bright orange colostrum, and everything is getting bigger except my bladder!.

“I’m sure there’s lots more interesting surprises to come! But you are worth it little man.”

Fans and friends rushed to comment on the post.

Kimberly Wyatt wrote: “Oh wow! Look at your gorgeous bump!”

One fan commented: “It amazes me that our bodies are capable of such amazing things.

“There is a tiny human growing inside of you! It’s just incredible.”

Earlier this year in August, Lucy revealed she and fiancé, former Coronation Street star, Ryan Thomas were expecting their first child together.

Ryan has a daughter named Scarlett with ex-girlfriend and former Corrie co-star Tina O’Brien.

The announcement came shortly after they announced their engagement.

Back in June, Ryan popped the question after whisking Lucy off to the Amalfi Coast for a surprise holiday.

The couple announced their happy news by sharing a gorgeous photograph of themselves posing in front of the night skyline while on their break.

Lucy was wearing the giant sparkling ring Ryan had given to her and wrote on Instagram: “I said YES.”
