She captioned the shot: "Four years later and a new addition. Dusty Doo we love you."

She hashtagged the Fullerton Bay Hotel, which is in Singapore, so it seems she's braved a long-haul flight with a little one! Well done, Lacey.

Fans were quick to comment, with one writing: "The cutest!"

Four years later and a new addition.

Another added: "Excellent family picture."

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.

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.

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!

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."

"Thank you to all the lovely ladies for making today so special but most of all thank you to @daisy90 @bevharv @lily_harvey @nannychick!! My gals did good."

Lacey is said to have made a brief return to EastEnders recently to film a few scenes.
