Ryan shared a photo of his two kids alongside the caption: "Been waiting for this moment, finally got all my family together....(Roman wore the T-shirt just incase Scarlett forgot who he was)".

Scarlett met Roman for the first time over FaceTime soon after he was born, with Ryan telling his fans: "Thank God for technology! I’m finding it really tough being away from my family and sad this is how my daughter met her baby brother.

"To any other broken families I feel your pain and it’s killing me being apart from my daughter and family for so long, especially at this special time.

"BUT we all need to take social isolation and social distancing seriously and it’s a sacrifice we have to make to save lives."
