Ryan Libbey embraces daddy duties on a stroll as Louise Thompson recovers at home
Ryan Libbey has embraced daddy duties after he and his fiancée, former Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson, recently welcomed their first child together.
Louise, 31, announced on Thursday 23 December that she’d given birth to a baby boy five weeks ago, whom she and Ryan have named Leo-Hunter.
Louise was late to give the announcement as she’d been recovering in hospital ever since Leo was born, after having endured a difficult birth and ended up in intensive care.
Leo also spent time in newborn intensive care, but fortunately made a “fairly quick recovery” and has since be discharged from hospital.

It was only five weeks after giving birth that Louise was discharged from hospital, and she informed her 1.3 million Instagram followers that she’s now resting at home.
With this in mind, Ryan has been spotted out on his own with baby Leo while Louise recovers.
In snaps taken on the day of Louise’s announcement, Ryan was seen pushing his son in his pram around Chelsea as he wrapped up warm for the cold British weather in a long black puffer coat and jeans, coupled with a cap and Vans.
Announcing the arrival of Leo, Louise wrote on Instagram: “This post isn’t an easy one for me to write. I have so many things that I want to say but at the same time I’m struggling to find the words to explain what has happened to me and my family so for now I will keep it quite simple.
“The reason I have been absent for weeks is because I have been very unwell.
“5 weeks ago I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy Leo-Hunter Libbey weighing in at 7lbs. Unfortunately it wasn’t the easiest start for either of us. One ended up in NICU and the other ended up in ICU.”
She continued: “Whilst Leo made a fairly quick recovery. I have been recovering in hospital for a month with various serious complications.
“In all honesty I never imagined that so many bad things could happen to me, but to dance with death twice brings a whole new view of the world – a stark reminder of how short and sacred life really is.
“We need to start living, we need to start loving, we need to start enjoying every minute detail in life (certainly easier said than done when you’re stuck in mental and/or physical purgatory or dealing with serious illness, depression or the fear of the unknown), but if you DO have the capacity, then try and cling onto any nuggets of good… and please please please be grateful for good health.
"The hard truth is that you don't know how lucky you are to have it until it's too late.”
The new mum went on to say that she’s currently “in a bit of a strange place mentally and physically” and, while she understands her recovery is “not going to be very easy or linear”, she’s happy to be able to go home for Christmas and to start living as a family of three with Ryan and Leo.
