Lacey Turner reacted to negative reactions she received after taking second maternity leave 14 months after giving birth

The 32-year-old gave birth to her first child, a girl named Dusty, in August 2019 and recently revealed that she is now expecting her second child

EastEnders star Lacey, who plays Stacey Fowler on the hit BBC One show, has just returned to screens as a fiery character but, rightly so, will soon be leaving once more as she is preparing to give birth for the second time

The brunette beauty joined Kaye Adams, Nadia Sawalha, Jane Moore and Coleen Nolan on Friday on Loose Women and admitted that she considers it a « compliment » that people are angry that she is disappearing again

Lacey was unaware of the fact that she had received complaints about taking more maternity leave until she saw a debate on the matter on a previous episode of the ITV daytime show the last week

She said: « It’s funny because I actually had no idea, because I was actually watching Loose Women with my dad in the kitchen and I was like, ‘Wait a minute daddy i have to watch this’ cause i had no idea what was going on so i did

« I don’t read anything about myself I post things on Instagram every now and then and kind of see the little piece you see below

« I don’t really get a chance to read all the reviews and they are all adorable, the tracks below

« I had no idea before watching your show so I took a look after finding out I was really in shock

« I was surprised people were I was trying to figure out why people were so angry, but at the same time I took it as a compliment that maybe you miss having Stacey so much on the place that, you know, I just take it as a compliment

« I don’t know if people thought I got paid while I was gone You know I just don’t know why they were mad But people are going to get mad at everything these days »

Lacey announced her second pregnancy in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine alongside her husband Matt Kay last month

She told us: « I was in heaven I had an idea that I was pregnant, so I did the test at home and it was positive

« We feel so lucky to be waiting for our second, because it took so long and there was so much heartache getting to Dusty here »

Stay home, Daddy Matt added, « When Lacey told me I was so happy Having Dusty was the best thing that ever happened to us, so having another baby will only be amazing »
