EastEnders Lacey Turner got back into bed after her waters broke because she felt ‘too tired’ to give birth

EASTENDERS star Lacey Turner got back into bed after her waters broke because she felt "too tired" to give birth.

Lacey and husband Matt Kay welcomed adorable after baby boy Trilby in February.

Lacey, 32, who plays EastEnders Stacey Slater, spoke about the birth of son Trilby on today's Loose Women.

She confessed: "I was sitting here minding my own business, I'd gone up to bed – I hadn't packed a hospital bag or anything.

"I'd got the case down ready to pack it that week but, you know, with the second one you're just so laid back.

"I'd washed a few babygrows but that was it. I went to go to bed and it was like whoosh! I thought that only happened in films so I was like, surely not."



Lacey, who was much more laid back with her second birth, added: "And I thought, 'no, I can't, I'm so tired,' so I got into bed and pretended it wasn't happening.

"Then I thought, 'I can't do this, I'd better phone them up,' and they said 'come up now,' so I threw some Mini Eggs and a nighty in the case and off I went."

Trilby is baby brother to Lacey's daughter Dusty, who turns two this year.

She told OK! magazine of the birth: "He came at 36 weeks! It was around 11pm and I was just about to go to bed and my waters broke like something out of a film.



"I had no idea that would happen, as my waters didn't break with Dusty. I didn’t know you could have that much water, I thought it was for TV purposes only!"

Lacey melted hearts with her first photo on Instagram of newborn son Trilby with husband Matt Kay in February.

The little boy, who weighed 6lb when he was born, looked adorable wearing a grey romper and wrapped in a cable-knit blanket with his name embroidered in white.

Her followers were overwhelmed with the sweet photo and rushed to congratulate the soap star.

One said: "He’s so beautiful Lace."
