HOLLY Willoughby praised Ryan Thomas’ “sweet” baby son as the new dad revealed how “tough” it is that his family haven’t met him yet.
The former Coronation Street actor showed off baby Roman on This Morning today.
“He’s so sweet,” said Holly.
“Oh it’s so lovely to see the baby too.
“Lockdown babies, it’s just so nice.”
She then asked Ryan how old baby Roman was, but he had to turn to partner Lucy for help answering.
Former Towie star Lucy Mecklenburgh shouted: “Eight weeks” before playing tapping Ryan.
He went on to say how the family were coping in lockdown.
“I think the toughest thing of all is that my brothers haven’t even met my son yet,” said Ryan.
“We’ll be doing a ‘Simba’ moment when we bring him into the Thomas family.”
Alongside his famous brothers Adam and Scott, Ryan made a documentary called Absolutely India: Mancs In Mumbai, where they will explore their family roots.
The boys retrace their beloved grandad Nolan’s footsteps in his country of birth, before he emigrated to the UK in 1947, with their dad.
The month-long trip enabled the family to make some new and incredible memories and also helped to cement their bond with each other, especially that the boys’ father wasn’t always around during their youth.
The documentary – which airs on ITV tonight – shows Adam confront their absent dad.
Speaking to Star TV mag, Adam, 31, said: “My dad left us for years when we were younger and then he came back into our lives and we never really talked about it.”
He added: “There were a lot of unanswered questions, which we touched on and I The think we needed to. It got quite emotional.”
