EASTENDERS star Lacey Turner has melted hearts with her first photo on Instagram of newborn son Trilby.

The actress, who plays Stacey Slater in the BBC soap, gave birth to her second child with husband Matt Kay in February.

Lacey, 32, shared the snap of her sleeping son with her 422,000 followers and simply captioned it with a heart emoji.

Her followers were overwhelmed with the sweet photo and rushed to congratulate the soap star.

The star introduced baby boy Trilby Fox in OK! magazine earlier this month.

Speaking about the moniker she and Matt chose for their second child, the TV star said: "I always thought it was such a cool name.

"I knew a girl once and her sister was called Trilby Fox and I always thought it was such a cool name, and I quite liked it for a boy, so I've had it in my head for a really long time!

"It’s nice because when people say, 'What's his name?' you say, 'Trilby, like the hat.'

"When we had Dusty, we said, 'Dusty, like Dusty Springfield'."

The soap star also opened up on her son being premature and their scary the experience in hospital.

Trilby was born at 36 weeks and spent two days in a a special care unit for babies after it was discovered he had fluid on his lungs.

"It's so strange to see your baby strapped up to loads of wires but he's doing really well now.

"I texted work saying, 'I won't be in tomorrow or the next day but I'm happy to come in next week.

"I had such a quick birth and my recovery was so quick, I just popped in a few days later to finish my couple of scenes.

Lacey previously admitted she ignored her pregnancy for three weeks over fears she would miscarry.

Lacey and Matt had two heartbreaking miscarriages before conceiving her daughter Dusty, who was born in July 2019.
