Sharing a video on Instagram, Ryan and his family could be seen taking a picture together, before Scarlett was presented with a white box.

When the girl, who is now 10, opened the box, she was greeted with a balloon reading “you’re going to be a big sister”.

Ryan and Lucy ran to hug the little one as she realised what was happening, and Scarlett burst into tears.
