EastEnders star Lacey Turner has announced she's pregnant with her "miracle" second child after previously suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage.

The actress has confirmed she's expecting baby number two with her husband Matt Kay after it was revealed she's taking a break from EastEnders.

"We feel so lucky to be expecting our second baby, as it took so long and there was so much heartache getting Dusty here," shared Lacey, 32, in an interview with OK! magazine.

Lacey endured two miscarriages at seven weeks before welcoming her daughter in July last year.

Following her miscarriages, lacey underwent tests to find out if there were any medical issues and then went through a period of six months where she didn't get pregnant.

She then discovered she was expecting for a third time with Dusty arriving safely in July 2019.

"We didn’t know if it was going to take years again so it was an amazing surprise,” said barber Matt, also 32.

"When Lacey told me, I was so happy. Having Dusty was the best thing that ever happened to us, so to have another baby is only going to be amazing," he added.
