Lacey's on-screen best friend, Louisa Lytton, who plays Ruby Allen, commented: "I couldn't love her more!!"

Tilly Keeper (Louise Mitchell) posted a series of purple heart emojis and Lorraine Stanley (Karen Taylor) went for the double heart emoji option.

"How beautiful is she?" added one fan.

I couldn't love her more!!

Another said: "What a little beauty. She's just so cute. Perfect photos."

"OMG she is so sweet," added a third.

Earlier this week Lacey Turner delighted fans with a glimpse into their home life with gorgeous pictures of Dusty's nursery.

The star has opted for neutral colours for her little girl, including a unique cot that has ombre bars.

Dusty also has a blanket with her name embroidered on it, and a simple wooden memory box with the letter D on its lid.

Lacey was sharing the pictures to thank her sister, Daisy, for the gifts she and her husband Christian sent to their new neice.

"Thank you for Dusty's lovely gifts!" Lacey wrote. "Can't wait to fill her memory box with lovely memories! We love you guys."

Fans loved the decor: "Stunning blanket," wrote one.

"Oh my goodness I LOVE her blanket," added another.

A third said: "Lacey, that is so beautiful."

"I hope you're enjoying motherhood," said someone else.

Lacey introduced her daughter last month after she and her husband Matt Kay welcomed the little one into the world.

Lacey, 31, showed her off in a photo shoot with OK! Magazine and revealed her unusual name: Dusty Violet Kay.

Lacey, who plays Stacey Fowler in the soap, told the publication: "Dusty's our little miracle – we call her Special Kay!"

Speaking about the little girl's name, Lacey added: "It wasn't on our original list but we did an internet search for 'pretty girls' names' and we both said it at the same time!

"Her middle name is Violet, which I also love. We've had mixed reactions, people either think it's really cool or they don't really know what to say!"

Matt said he was "over the moon" that they welcomed a daughter.

Lacey announced her pregnancy in February.

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

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."
