Lucy – who kept the baby news a secret following a miscarriage at seven weeks in March – shared a sweet picture of the ultrasound scan.
She posted a video of the moment she found out she was pregnant and the reactions of her close friends and family when she revealed the news.
The Bethany Platt star also shared clips of her growing baby bump, cleverly hidden with oversized garments.
She wrote: “I just can’t wait for this next chapter with you @ryanledson8 Baby Ledson, we’re going to have a ball.”
Overjoyed with the news, footie star Ryan Ledson, 25, uploaded a photo of the scan and wrote: “Mum and dad to be, can’t wait for the next year.”
Fans gushed over the image and raced to congratulate him.
The actress told OK! about her pregnancy: “I’m scared but excited” as she posed with her bump and footballer boyfriend Ryan Ledson.
Ryan told the magazine: “I’ve always wanted to be a young dad so I can be active with them.”
But it hasn’t been plain sailing for the couple who, earlier this year, were left heartbroken at losing an unplanned baby.
It has led to a lot of anxiety after Lucy fell pregnant again five months ago.
“It was a traumatising, horrendous time,” Lucy said.
“Even though so many people go through it, you never expect it will happen to you. I had imagined this little person who was going to come into our lives and then they were taken away from me.
“It was really mentally challenging and really horrible to deal with, but Ryan was so supportive.”
The former soap star played Bethany Platt on the ITV series for five years.
She’s been dating Ryan since May 2021 and briefly split in December just three months after moving in together.
She turned to celebrity dating app Raya to get over the heartbreak before patching things up with Ryan.
In August 2020, Lucy split from her boyfriend of four years Tom Leech — because lockdown “drove them apart”.
During Lucy’s time on the iconic cobbles she won a National Television Award for Outstanding Serial Drama Performance in 2018.
She was praised for her role after her character became embroiled in a toxic, grooming storyline.
It also earned her Best Female Dramatic Performance at the 2018 British Soap Awards.
Lucy announced her departure in 2019 and was last on screen early last year.
After leaving the hit ITV soap, Lucy went on to star in the channel’s challenge series Don’t Rock The Boat.
