Ryan Thomas and Lucy Mecklenburgh have given fans a glimpse into their son Roman's second birthday celebrations.

Former Coronation Street star Ryan, 37, and ex-TOWIE star Lucy, 30, marked their son's big day with a lavish safari-themed bash, where they were joined by their families and close friends.

Many of the pair's celebrity pals were on hand to help Roman celebrate, including Made in Chelsea star Ashley James, who attended with her one year old son Alfie and long-term boyfriend Tom Andrews.

Lucy and Ryan, who are set to welcome a baby girl together later this year, went all out for Roman's second birthday, having hired out a venue complete with a play area for the party.

The room had been filled with numerous decorations, including a gorgeous ballon display.

A large brown sign could be seen surrounded by cardboard cut-outs of different animals, such as giraffes and zebras, and it had the words 'Roman turns two' written across it in gold.

Brown, blue, and yellow balloons had been scattered around, and a table had been set ready for Roman and his guests.

Each spot at the table had a different animal mask, and a light-up sign had been placed in the centre, which sweetly said 'Feeding time at the zoo.'

Ashley, 34, took to Instagram to share snaps of the stunning decorations, as she revealed that it was the first children's party she and Alfie had ever attended.

The former MIC star wrote: "Alfie (and our) first children's party! Happy birthday Roman @lucymeck1 @ryanthomas84."

As well as their friends, many of Lucy and Ryan's family members were in attendance, including Ryan's mum Gail and Lucy's sister Lydia.

Lydia had created a delicious spread of snacks for all of the couple's guests, and posted several clips of her work on her Instagram Stories.

Roman's incredible birthday cake was also visible in the video, which was covered in light yellow icing and decorated with blue, pink, and gold balls.

After an afternoon of non-stop playing, everyone gathered around to see Roman blow out his candles, as doting dad Ryan presented him with the celebratory cake.

Ryan could be seen carrying the cake over to Lucy, who was holding Roman on her hip, with a huge sparkler placed in the centre.

Ryan's daughter Scarlett, 13, then joined the trio as everyone sang happy birthday.

Lucy looked radiant as she modelled an orange striped midi dress with long sleeves, which she paired with beige ankle boots.

The star's blossoming bump was visible as she cradled Roman, who wore a white t-shirt and an adorable pair of grey and white checkered dungarees.

Following on from Roman's lavish birthday bash, Lucy took to her own Instagram the following day to share footage of her son opening his presents.

A series of gifts had been laid out across the floor ready for Roman, who was dressed in grey pyjamas covered in dinosaurs, to unwrap.

Lucy helped her two year old son open each present, before posting a picture of him alongside the caption: "How is my baby boy 2!!!"

She later marked Roman's birthday with an adorable video made up of several clips of him over the past two years.

Lucy's followers flooded her social media with birthday messages for Roman, with fellow TOWIE star Debbie Bright writing: "Happy birthday to the loveliest kindest little boy I have ever met being you and. the will fall in love with YOU."

Caroline Thomas added: "Can't even deal happy birthday baby boy," while Ryan's brother Scott said: "Wow", alongside a red heart emoji.
