Lacey recently announced she's pregnant with her first child with husband Matt.

Confirming the news to OK! Magazine - where she said she was due in mid-July - Lacey said the couple have "dreamed of having a family for so long".

Lacey told the publication: "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 former Our Girl star tragically suffered two miscarriages before her current pregnancy, and told OK! she felt as though her "whole world had fallen to pieces” when she lost her babies.

She said: "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."

And although she’s thrilled to be starting a family of her own now, Lacey admitted the morning sickness has been tough to deal with, as she says special bands worn to combat sea sickness became her "best friend".

She added: "Sea sick bands were my best friend! I’d only take them off to have a bath. When I was wearing them, I’d time it so I’d get up 20 minutes earlier, throw up and then drive to work. I was okay as long as I was eating constantly!"

Matt and Stacey tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Ibiza in September 2017.
