The picture showed the tot’s arm and his stuffed toy as hospital wires were attached to him.

Lucy said: “As some of you may have noticed we haven’t been on social media lately.

“Just over a week ago I found Roman blue in his cot – probably every parent’s worst nightmare.

“Without going into too much detail it ended up with Roman being transferred to St Mary’s London intensive care being put on a ventilator.

“Thankfully we are now all home and Roman is back to his cheeky self.”

Meanwhile, Ryan also opened up about the terrifying incident on his Instagram page.

He posted a photo of himself cuddling Roman in hospital.

The former Coronation Street actor wrote: “No words can explain how grateful we are to have our little boy home safe after spending nearly a week in intensive care.
