EastEnders star Lacey Turner is expecting her "miracle" second child with her husband Matt Kay, exclusively announcing the happy news to OK! magazine.

The pair, both 32, are already parents to daughter Dusty, one, and can’t wait to welcome their second child.

The pair’s journey to parenthood was a long and heartbreaking one for the couple. Lacey sadly suffered two miscarriages before becoming pregnant with Dusty. Both were at seven weeks.

Lacey, who is 16 weeks pregnant, tells OK! she was concerned when they started trying for another baby and are delighted to have fallen pregnant so quickly, calling it a “miracle.”

Lacey told us: “I didn’t know how long it would take and you worry you may suffer more heartache, but, thankfully, everything’s been fine.

“I don’t think pregnancy will ever be an exciting experience for me as I always have that worry in the back of my mind, but the further along I go in the pregnancy, the less I worry. Matt’s more positive than me."

Matt, who is a barber, added: “I try not to let any negative energy creep up.”

Stacey Slater actress Lacey continued to say: “I don’t think Matt thinks too deeply about things, whereas I’ll go straight to the worst possible scenario!”

The actress says it was a “huge relief” to get past the seven-week point of her pregnancy.

She said: “I still feel nervous but I think I always will. I got past seven weeks, then nine weeks, and so on. They’re all milestones.

“The 20-week mark is the point I feel like I can breathe a bit easier, as it’s the halfway point. Although I went straight onto progesterone as I think that helped last time.”

The popular actress is hoping to have a water birth with her second child as she says: “It depends on the Covid-19 rules. I’m thinking of having a home birth because of the virus.

“I was so lucky with Dusty’s birth so I feel quite relaxed about it. I just hope it goes the same way!”
