RYAN Thomas has spoken candidly about being a new parent amid the coronavirus lockdown – admitting he is “full of fear and loneliness.”
The 35-year-old recently became a dad for the second time when his fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh gave birth to their son Roman, but they have been in isolation since.
His family and daughter Scarlett – from a previous relationship – are yet to meet the baby, which has led him to think about other parents in the same situation.
The actor, who is best known for playing Jason Grimshaw on Corrie, has vowed to help those who are struggling and has offered to help people who need any baby supplies.
Alongside a stunning image of him and Roman, he wrote: “I’ve been thinking a lot about parents who are soon to bring a baby or just had a baby like ourselves into this crazy world we live in right now, something none of us imagined.
"What is suppose to be one of the most special times in your life is full fear and loneliness.
“Everyday is a new challenge with a new born, luckily me & lucy have each other & work hard as a team to look after our baby in our little bubble.”
He continued: “It is unsettling not having support and reassurance from loved ones and the knowledge of normal medical care available if needed and it makes you feel very vulnerable.
“To all parents out there you need to know you are doing such an amazing job.”
The star added: “It’s only small gesture but if you need anything nappies, baby grows, formula things maybe I can send in the post that we have or I can order for you online please dm me your address & what you need and I’ll try and do as much I can to help as know it must be a difficult time right now.”
