Lucy Mecklenburgh has kicked off her lavish 30th birthday celebrations in style, marking the special occasion with a spot of lunch with partner Ryan Thomas and their son Roman.
The former TOWIE star was filmed on the balcony of a swish restaurant with mum Linda and sisters Lydia and Christie as she toasted her birthday.
The footage was shared on partner Ryan Thomas' Instagram stories with the caption: "Me and Roman gate crashed mums birthday lunch."
The brunette beauty was wearing an off the shoulder blue and white checked waterfall dress enjoying the summer sunshine as a musician played music in the background.
Son Roman, aged 18 months, was captured in a high chair enjoying a sweet treat.
Lucy and Ryan were spotted boarding a train in Essex on Tuesday morning as they headed off for a birthday break.
The couple are currently living in Essex with their son while they work on doing up their new Cheshire pad.
Although Ryan now has two homes in the UK, he recently confessed that he would love to live abroad.
However, it looks unlikely that the family will move in the near-future, as Ryan recently said he wouldn't want to leave his daughter Scarlett, who he shares with his ex-partner Tina O'Brien.
Talking to brothers Adam and Scott for his Mancs on the Mic podcast, he said: "What it comes down to is the weather. The weather changes everything, if it's not nice weather you stay indoors.
"In California the weather is good all year round so what do people do? They spend their time outside. Playing basketball, on the beach, going for runs. I feel like that is a happy life when you have the good weather. It keeps people motivated.
"The only thing that stops that happening, is Scarlett. She lives in two homes. I would like her to have a base, where she can feel it is her "other home".
"Otherwise for six months of the year I could live abroad and work from home."
Earlier this month, Lucy enjoyed a staycation with her pal and former co-star Lydia Bright, who brought along daughter Loretta, at a sprawling nature reserve in Suffolk.
As they arrived at the Wilderness Reserve, Lucy wrote on Instagram: "Let the staycation begin
"I’ve wanted to stay at @wildernessreserve for so long we luckily got a last min cancellation. Can’t wait to show you guys what we all get up to on my stories."
