“Thank you sooo soooo much for all your lovely messages [sic] .”
Ryan too broke his silence on the engagement, posting and image of the pair preparing to smooch as Lucy showed off her dazzling ring to his 943,000 followers.
He simply captioned the image: “Welcome to the family,” tagging his stunning fiancée alongside a ring and love heart emoji.
Ryan and Lucy opened up about their relationship for the first time to OK! magazine and spilled their plans to get married in August 2018.
The actor said: “We’ll have a massive wedding. It would be huge and one big party. It would be bigger than my brother Adam’s!”
He also revealed how he instantly knew Lucy was pretty special, telling her he loved her almost immediately.

Ryan added: “I’m a softie and I wouldn’t have her around my daughter unless I knew she was going to be around for a very long time.
“I said the love word straight away. It gets used very frequently in my life – I’ll tell my mates I love them daily. Lucy isn’t as open as I am.”
The hunk also said he “had his eye on her for about three years”.
