In one photo, Lucy, 27, lovingly gazed into Ryan’s eyes as she sat on his lap after an alfresco dinner.

It comes after Lucy took to Instagram on Saturday to post the smitten snap from the Amalfi coast as she leaned in to kiss her other half while flashing her new sparkler.
‘I said YES❤️,’ Lucy wrote alongside a ring emoji as she informed her fans of their relationship’s status update.
Ryan, who shares daughter Scarlett, 10, with ex Tina O’Brien, had clearly pulled out all the stops for the proposal as he wined and dined the stunner with a romantic al fresco dinner by the sea.

Ryan also took to his Instagram shortly after with two romantic snaps, with the caption: ‘Welcome to the family @lucymeck1 ❤️.’
The couple met on Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls in early 2017 and confirmed their romance in July after months of speculation.
Lucy also showed her fans the sequence of events that led to the proposal as she stated: ‘So this is what happened last night.’
She uploaded a black and white clip of her and Ryan enjoying a romantic boat ride across the Italian waters.
‘I said YES!’ The couple are now engaged after two years of dating after Ryan popped the question last week
They then arrived to their destination where Lucy confessed she ‘still had no idea what was going on’ and that the proposal had taken her by a complete surprise.
The fitness guru recently shared that she was keen to take the next step in her relationship with Ryan by becoming engaged.
In an interview with OK! magazine in late 2018, Ryan said: ‘She’s always dropping hints about what she wants to happen. I think Lucy wants me to propose next year!’
Overjoyed: Lucy posted another photo of the ring Ryan gave her and admitted she ‘can’t stop looking at it’
Blinding: The sparkling ring effortlessly caught the light as she panned the camera over her perfectly manicured hand
TV personality Lucy added: ‘You’d better get saving because I want a really heavy left hand!’
‘I wouldn’t waste my time with someone if I didn’t believe we were on the same page about children and getting married. I know we both want the same things in the future.’
And despite their new engagement news, it appears that the pair were already planning their wedding months before.
