The adorable post was liked more than 300,000 times in the first few hours and fans clearly want to see more of their little boy.
It comes after Ryan's dad Dougie sadly died in November last year.
The soul singer, who toured with the Jackson 5 before settling down to have his boys, Ryan, Adam and Scott Thomas, died suddenly at the age of 72 in November.
Ryan took a social media break to cope with his grief before returning last month.
He lets fans in on how much Dougie meant to him after posting a black and white photo of them together.
The actor paid an emotional tribute to his late dad and says he will miss him every day.
He wrote: "You are the reason I’m proud to be a Thomas, since being a young child I’ve always been in awe of you.
"Growing up watching you on the stage to people stopping me in the street saying 'are you Dougie James’s son?' is something I love more than you will ever know."
Mourning Ryan said he was "overwhelmed" by the number of people who came to say goodbye to his dad.
"He added: I’ve not had chance to reply to everyone’s messages.
"But I want you to know your love & support has really helped me get through this extremely tough time thank you."
