The mum suffered two devastating miscarriages in the past so there's no doubt she's over the moon by the arrival of her little one.

She told OK! "I can't wait to nurture our baby – we've dreamed of having a family for so long. When you've lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat - we've had about 12 scans."

Speaking about her past miscarriage heartache, the actress shared: “It felt like my whole world had fallen to pieces and there’s nothing you can do apart from try and put it back together.”

Lacey confessed: “I blamed myself thinking that I’d done something wrong. I’d think, why me? What did I do? But, of course, I hadn’t done anything wrong – it’s all down to chromosomes and luck, really.”

We couldn't be happier for Lacey and her husband Matt. We can't wait to find out her daughter's name.
