Lacey Turner has announced she's expecting her second child with husband Matt Kay.
The EastEnders actress confirmed she's 16 weeks pregnant, and due to give birth in February.
Lacey and Matt are already parents to 1-year-old daughter Dusty, and revealed their joy at expecting again so soon.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, Lacey said: "After last time, we learned the best way was to have the attitude of 'if it happens it happens' – and then it did!
"It was a lovely surprise. It took so long with Dusty, but now they're coming along like buses!
"After the heartbreak we went through, it’s a miracle to fall pregnant so quickly."
Matt added: "We didn’t know if it was going to take years again so it was an amazing surprise."
Lacey previously had two miscarriages at seven weeks, before finding out she was expecting Dusty.
"I didn't know how long it would take and you worry you may suffer more heartache, but, thankfully, everything's been fine," she added.
"I don't think pregnancy will ever be an exciting experience for me as I always have that worry in the back of my mind, but the further along I go in the pregnancy, the less I worry. Matt's more positive than me."

Lacey, who first joined the soap in 2004, added that none of her co-stars guessed she was going to become a mum again.
"I think a few people looked at me and thought I was still carrying my baby weight," she said.
"I'd just had a year off and everyone said how well I looked. I was back about four weeks before I found out I was pregnant.
"I told James [Bye] and Louisa [Lytton] first of all as I'm closest to them."
