'Corrie' hunk Ryan Thomas says he still cares about his ex-girlfriend Tina O'Brien, the mother of his daughter Scarlett, and they have a great relationship despite splitting up
Ryan Thomas has a great relationship with ex-girlfriend Tina O'Brien.
The 'Coronation Street' hunk has a five-year-old daughter, Scarlett, with his former co-star and while they've long split up, the pair - who are both in new relationships - have a strong bond due to their shared parental responsibilities.
Ryan said: "I care about Tina a lot and she's the best thing in the world. I'm very happy with the set-up and everyone gets on. It's really good."
The 30-year-old star admits he felt "negative" when the couple first split, but he's learned to get along with his ex, who played Sarah-Louise Platt in 'Corrie'.
He told Britain's OK! magazine: "I appreciate the good things in life and appreciate how beautiful Scarlett is. It's not about me and my problems and my issues. I was a bit negative and now I know I've got to get on with people. I was a really young dad and now I've grown up a bit."
Ryan is now dating Bollywood star Amy Jackson, 23, while Tina is six months pregnant with her second child, with new boyfriend Adam Crofts.
The 'Corrie' star says he is willing to have Scarlett's half-sibling stay over and gets on great with Adam.
He enthused: "I said to Tina, 'When Scarlett comes over to stay, I've got two of them to look after now!'
"Course I will [look after the baby] - whatever Scarlett wants. The point is to make her happy."
