EastEnders’ Lacey Turner announces unusual baby name

by Mother & Baby |

Lacey Turner has described her daughter as a 'miracle'.

EastEnders star Lacey Turner welcomed her baby girl into the world earlier this month and has finally revealed her daughter's unusual name - Dusty Violet Kay.

The yummy mummy gushed to OK! magazine: "Dusty's our little miracle – we call her Special Kay!"

She went on to say: "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!"

Her husband Matt Kay, added: "The only other Dusty I know is Dusty Springfield. We do like Dusty Springfield but she wasn’t named after her!"

How adorable!

We wonder if they checked out our long list of pretty girl names...

Before falling pregnant with baby Dusty, Lacey had two miscarriages and bravely spoke out about their heartbreak.

"When you’ve lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat, we’ve had about 12 scans. It felt like my whole world had fallen to pieces and there’s nothing you can do apart from try and put it back together.

"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."

The happy couple, who met when they were teenagers, tied the knot in Ibiza surrounded by friends, family and EastEnders stars.

In 2018 Hollywood actress Rachel Weisz, 48, had her second child, a baby girl, with James Bond star Daniel Craig. It was the couple’s first child together - Rachel already has a son from a previous relationship and Daniel has a daughter from his marriage to Fiona Loudon.

Speaking to the Mirror about having a child later in life, Rachel said: "The preciousness of a new life and family means so much more now I’m more mature and older. My son was a miracle and it was an incredible experience. But doing it again now I’m older is very deep and very precious. I am very lucky."
