It’s a bit different, but we love it!

Earlier this month, actress Lacey Turner gave birth to her first child.

The EastEnders star and husband Matt Kay welcomed a baby girl on July 12, just a few weeks after celebrating the pregnancy with a baby shower.

OK! Online reports that the parents are “over the moon.”

Lacey has now revealed the name of her newborn on the cover of OK! Magazine – her name is Dusty Violet Kay.

Gushing over her little one, the new mum told the mag: “Dusty’s our little miracle – we call her Special Kay!”

Turner and Kay married in 2017 in Ibiza.

The pair first met when they were teenagers and have been trying to start a family for the past few years.

Turner, who is best known for playing Stacey Slater in the BBC soap, experienced two miscarriages before becoming pregnant with her daughter.

She said recently that she felt “so lucky” to be expecting for the third time.

“I can’t wait to nurture our baby – we’ve dreamed of having a family for so long,” she said before Dusty was born.
