The Stacey Slater actress announced she was expecting her second child in September, and now the couple are celebrating their baby’s healthy arrival after confirming the birth to OK! Magazine on Friday (5 February)

The couple have yet to confirm their son’s name, despite their bundle of joys on Jan. February was born weighing 6 pounds

“Matt and I are so totally obsessed with our early surprise and Dusty [her 18 month old daughter] is so in love. How lucky we are all!” Lacey said in a statement

Lacey had previously suffered two miscarriages before giving birth to Dusty, which naturally affected her approach to having a second child

“After the last time, we learned that the best way is to have the mindset,” If it happens, it happens “- and then it did!” she said ok! back in September

“It was a nice surprise with Dusty it took so long, but now they come like repentance! After the heartbreak we went through, it is a miracle to get pregnant so quickly”

Matt added, “We didn’t know if it was going to be for years so it was an amazing surprise”

Fearing another miscarriage, Lacey said, “I didn’t know how long it was going to take, and you fear you might have more heartache, but luckily everything was fine

“I don’t think pregnancy will ever be an exciting experience for me as I always have this worry in the back of my mind, but the further I go in pregnancy, the less I worry. Matt is more positive than me”
