Lacey Turner Expecting Second Childby Laura Driver
EastEnders star Lacey Turner has shared the lovely news that she is pregnant with her second child.
The announcement comes amid confirmation that she will take a break from the soap for up to a year. Lacey will return to screens as Stacey Fowler next week after her last maternity leave was slightly extended by the closing of production on set due to the pandemic. Last year Lacey and her husband Matt Kay welcomed the arrival of their daughter Dusty.
Lacey told OK! Magazine: ‘We feel so lucky to be expecting our second baby, as it took so long to get Dusty. After last time, we learned the best way was to have the attitude of ‘if it happens it happens’ – and then it did! It was a lovely surprise. It took so long with Dusty, but now they’re coming along like buses! After the heartbreak we went through, it’s a miracle to fall pregnant so quickly.’
Stacey’s exit storyline has not been confirmed, although fans have speculated that the character will depart with her on/off love interest Max Branning (Jake Wood).
