TOWIES Lucy Mecklenburgh shares trauma over son Romans health problem

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed her trauma after a health scare left her young son needing daily medication and an inhaler.

The ex-reality TV favourite, 30, faced two-year-old Roman being rushed into hospital last year after he was found "blue in his cot"

She told followers on Instagram Stories that the toddler was placed on a ventilator in intensive care, and earlier this year was diagnosed with a condition that caused fluids he drank to get into his lungs.

The toddler underwent a videofluroscopy, an X-ray taken as a patient consumes fluid and now needs a special thickener instead of thin liquids to combat the problem.

Lucy shared a snap of her son's medication and inhaler and said: "After a really positive few months with Roman have a diagnosis & on the thickened fluids."

She added: "He has a little wheeze & cough so we are back here it's still a win if we don't end up in a&e."

Earlier this year the star, who shares Roman with fiance Ryan Thomas, 37, reportedly said of her son's attendance at hospital: “It was to check that there wasn’t any fluid when he drinks going down the wrong way and into his lungs.

"I honestly thought that it wasn’t going to show that, so I kept my days’ work in and he went with Ryan.

She added: “I like to be at all the appointments and Ryan rang me and said it was showing there is fluid going into his lungs. I feel really weird about it because I’m sad for Roman."

Lucy's update on Roman comes after she and Ryan revealed the name of their second child, a girl born back in May.

She announced on Instagram, alongside a picture of the child: "Yay!! I finally have a name!!! Lilah Rae Thomas."

Lucy and former Coronation Street star and Celebrity Big Brother winner Ryan have been together since 2017, with the actor popping the question two years later during a romantic trip to Italy.

The couple welcomed Roman in March 2020, with their newest addition being Ryan's third child, with the actor having his eldest, Scarlett, 13 years ago in a previous relationship.
