Lacey Turner has given birth to a baby girl.

The "EastEnders" actress and her husband Matt Kay welcomed their first child into the world on Friday (12.07.19) and, according to OK! Online, the new parents are "over the moon and filled with joy".

It is not yet known what the baby's name is or her weight and time of birth.

The 31-year-old actress previously admitted she felt "really nervous" about having a baby after suffering two miscarriages in the past, both seven weeks into the pregnancy.

She said: "We were really nervous, but you have to say to yourself, "Right, we really want this, let's try again".

"We tried and tried, and we were just getting nowhere, and 18 months had gone by, still nothing. You get to the point where you think, I don't know if this is going to happen to us."

After taking monthly pregnancy tests, the couple - who got married in 2017 - found out they were expecting a baby in November last year, and Lacey admitted she couldn't wait to "nurture" her baby.

She said: "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."

The star - who is best known for her role as Stacey Fowler in BBC soap "EastEnders" - previously admitted she felt as though her "whole world had fallen to pieces" when she lost her babies.

She added: "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.

"Speaking to other people about it helped me. Women shouldn't feel ashamed to talk about it as it happens to so many women."
