EastEnders' Lacey Turner shares snap of her sister meeting gorgeous baby Dusty

The star posted the touching family moment on Instagram

While Lacey Turner is on maternity leave from EastEnders she has been melting fans' hearts by sharing pictures of baby Dusty.

Now she's posted an emotional shot of her sister, Daisy, meeting her niece for the first time.

The actress gave birth to her first child, a daughter, last month and has shared several images of the cutie to her social media.

But the latest picture has to be the most emotional - and one of the most special - as Daisy's eyes are filled with tears as she meets the little one.

Lacey captioned the shot: "When Dusty met Auntie Day Day."

Lacey's co-stars Scott Maslen (Jack Branning), Jessie Wallace (Kat Slater) and Patsy Palmer (Bianca Jackson) all commented the same thing: "Beautiful."

And Lacey's mum, Bev Harvey wrote about the special moment: "Money can't buy memories, my heart is now content."

Daisy is also an actress, having appeared in Hollyoaks before now.

Last week Lacey delighted fans with a glimpse into their home life with gorgeous pictures of Dusty's nursery - including gifts Daisy had sent for her niece.

When Dusty met Auntie Day Day

The star has opted for neutral colours for her little girl, with 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 Daisy for the gifts she and her husband Christian sent.

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

Last week, Lacey also shared images of Dusty having a photoshoot done.

In one image the baby is surrounded by flowers, and in another she's wearing an adorable bow in her hair and resting her sleeping face on her hands. So cute!

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."
