Lucy carefully placed her palm on her stomach and took a black and white photo, which she subsequently shared on her account with the comment “Hi baby.”
As she documented her pregnancy, fans and friends flocked to congratulate her and give good comments about the soon-to-be mother.

Lucy shared: ‘So many questions about veganism, whether I’m still vegan etc… for me veganism is a promise I made to the animals, one I will never break. no matter what.
‘In terms of my diet, I’ve made a conscious effort to eat less processed food and more whole foods. Also – protein. I made sure I got at least 60g a day, protein is the building blocks of life and essential to grow a baby..
‘Very achievable to get everything you need on a vegan diet, you just need to make a conscious effort, such as with any diet, to meet all nutritional needs…’
Amongst the questions, she also answered one put to her about becoming pregnant following which she admitted her struggles.
The star explained: ‘There were times when it felt like bad news after bad news, it was never ending and the light at the end of the tunnel felt faint…
‘We have seen so many specialists over the last few years and there were times when I wasn’t sure if this could ever happen for us.
‘We know there are people out there who have it way worse and for everyone struggling, I see you and feel your pain.’
