EastEnders star Lacey Turner has given birth to her first child.

The soap star, 31, welcomed her first child with husband Matt Kay, who she married in Ibiza in 2017.

Lacey and Matt welcomed a baby girl on Friday 12 July and the new parents are said to be over the moon and filled with joy.

Lacey celebrated the pregnancy just weeks ago with a baby shower in her north London home.

She captioned a picture of the day: “I’m a lucky girl.

“Thank you to all the lovely ladies for making today so special but most of all thank you to @daisy90 @bevharv @lily_harvey @nannychick!! My gals did good.”

The happy news of their birth comes after the Stacey Fowler actress devastatingly suffered two miscarriages in the past.

She also heartbreakingly detailed how she thought she was having a third miscarriage during the early stages of her pregnancy.

Speaking on This Morning earlier this year, Lacey revealed that she didn’t allow herself to get excited about her pregnancy until she passed the 20 weeks stage.

She told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby after she discovered she was pregnant for the third time, she thought: “Oh, well don’t get excited.

“I ignored it until I was 10 weeks. I thought maybe that would work.

“I got to seven weeks and thought, ‘don’t get excited,’ then eight, nine, my family would say it was time and I told my mum not to talk about it.

“It wasn’t until I got to about 20 weeks and then I thought, ‘ooh, maybe we are going to have a baby.’“
