Lacey said their good news was a ‘miracle’ a day after it was announced she would be taking another extended hiatus from the BBC EastEnders soap opera.
Speaking to OK !, Lacey said, “We feel so lucky to be expecting our second baby because it has taken so long to have Dusty. The star, 16 weeks pregnant, had two miscarriages before conceiving her 14-month-old daughter.

“It took so long with Dusty,” Lacey explained. “But now they’re coming like buses! After the heartbreak we have been through, it is a miracle to get pregnant so quickly.
Lacey’s two miscarriages happened at seven weeks and she admits it’s a “huge relief” to be further into the pregnancy and hit the heartbreaking milestone.
She admitted: “I still feel nervous but I think I always will be. I spent seven weeks, then nine weeks, and so on. These are all milestones …
“The 20 week mark is when I feel like I can breathe a little easier because it’s the halfway point. Although I went straight to progesterone, I think it helped last time.
