Lucy Mecklenburgh says juggling two kids is like a ‘military operation’June 6, 2022
Lucy Mecklenburgh has opened up on being a new mum-of-two.
The former The Only Way is Essex star, 30, who admitted she and partner Ryan Thomas have yet to name their baby daughter following her birth last week, shared her candid experience with her 1.7million followers on Instagram.
As part of a Q&A with fans, one asked: “Is it hard juggling 2 so young!?”
Lucy replied with a photo of both her children, with fiancé Ryan, 37, changing their son Roman’s nappy while she was midway through changing her daughter’s outfit.
“Feels abit like a military operation sometimes but me & Ryan just work as a team,” she wrote.
“I’m breastfeeding, changing etc baby girl and Ryan’s changing, bathing, feeding & playing with Roman.”
The reality star welcomed her second child at the end of May.
Lucy and Ryan are already parents to young son Roman, who turned two in March, with Ryan also father to 13 year old Scarlett, who he shares with ex Tina O’Brien.
Their daughter was seven days overdue, with Lucy sharing a countdown to her daughter’s arrival with her fans and followers on Instagram.
She posted a sweet snap of her and her bump ahead of her grandmother’s 90th birthday party, which she expected to be taking her newborn daughter to.
She wrote: “Nanny’s 90th birthday celebrations I thought I would be here with her 1st great granddaughter but she’s keeping us all waiting a little longer! 40+6 now.
“Best nanny & great nanny in the world love you lots Nanny Meck.”
Since her daughter’s birth, Lucy has since shared several updates on her new baby girl with fans, including a sweet snap of her sleeping in a Moses basket in a white outfit with orange flowers.
“Thank you for all your kind messages!” she wrote.
“To answer some of your questions she was 7 days over her due date, the birth was positive & honestly magical, Roman adores her, I’m doing really well recovery wise and she’s the dream!!
