She welcomed her second child, a son named Trilby Fox, with husband Matt Kay last month.  

And Lacey Turner spoke about being a mum-of-two and her labour story as she appeared on Loose Women on Tuesday. 

The EastEnders actress, 32, said their daughter Dusty, 19 months, is an ‘amazing’ big sister to Trilby but can be ‘incredibly bossy’.

At the start of the interview, host Ruth Langsford suffered an awkward gaffe when she confused Lacey’s name for her EastEnders character, Stacey Slater. 

But conversation soon turned to motherhood and how the family has adapted since the arrival of Trilby. 

Speaking about how Dusty is doing, Lacey said: ‘She’s so amazing, incredibly bossy. She is the best babysitter I’ve ever had. I’ve got her a pram that is her height, so she pushes him around the kitchen.

‘It’s hard, I miss my sleep but it is so lovely. It’ll be so lovely when we’re able to go out. It’s lovely seeing them together. It just fills your heart.’

Lacey added she ‘still can’t believe I had a boy’ as she explained that she comes from a family of mostly girls. 

Explaining her son’s name, she told the panel: ‘We worked with someone and she had a sister called Trilby Fox and I just loved the name and saved it for when I had a boy which I never thought I would.’

Lacey said she went into all of a sudden when her waters broke when she went to go to bed. 

‘It was like whoosh. I went into bed and pretended like it didn’t happen, before I went to hospital.

‘I was one month early as I wasn’t too scared, but the scary bit was after as he was so tiny and had loads of tubes and everything.’

Explaining what labour was like amid the coronavirus restrictions, Lacey continued: ‘I had to go in by myself but he was there throughout the whole birth. 

‘It would be so hard and horrible to do that on your own. Two hours after, he had to go. Trilby was whisked away straight away. 

‘I saw myself panicking as I needed him to come to the shower with me to help me. I rushed myself out of bed and showered in case I needed anything.’ 

Back to work: Because of her early labour, Lacey hadn't finished shooting scenes for EastEnders and so was spotted on set just eight days after Trilby's birth to tie up the loose end

Because of her early labour, Lacey hadn’t finished shooting scenes for EastEnders and so was spotted on set just eight days after Trilby’s birth to tie up the loose ends.

The actress explained: ‘I had such a quick birth so I didn’t really have a tough time. I had a whole night’s sleep so I actually felt really good. I gave myself five days, called them and told them not to panic as I could do a couple of scenes. It was lovely actually.’

Of her maternity leave, Lacey previously explained to OK! Magazine: ‘EastEnders were amazing and accommodated the times I could work. The plan is to have six months off and go back in August.

‘So please, God, we’ll be able to travel to Ibiza so we can have a few months at our home there!’  

Lacey and Matt have been together since they were both 15, with the romantic proposal taking place in September 2016 during a break in Venice. 

Lacey and Matt married in 2017 with a wild ceremony in Ibiza, with the partying continuing until 5am.
