Prior to her big announcement, Lucy Mecklenburgh began a weekend of celebrations for her 28th birthday party on Friday evening.
Seeing in her birthday, Lucy was joined by Ryan and her immediate family for dinner at Sushi Samba in London on Friday.
The small group indulged in copious amounts of sushi and champagne, before the birthday girl was presented with a scrumptious chocolate cake.
After blowing out the candles, Lucy and her family appeared delighted as they took a ride across London in red tuk-tuks, laughing all the way.
The celebrations continued at Flight Club Darts, where the reality star and her fianceé beat her family in a game of darts.
Friday’s celebrations were rounded off with not one, but two birthday cakes as Lucy was presented with an extra slice at a second venue during the evening.

Next up, Lucy was taken to The Ned rooftop pool, accessible only by members of the swanky venue.
Meanwhile, Lucy and Ryan are no doubt still on cloud nine following their lavish, star-filled engagement party at the end of last month.
The lovebirds hired a boat for a fun-filled party on the River Thames, with the bash featuring balloon installations, a six-tired cake and a live band.
The soap actor popped the question to Lucy in the picturesque Italian resort of Positano in June.
