The 30-year-old actress – who is best known for her role as Stacey Fowler in BBC show – announced she was pregnant back in February.

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.”
