Natalie Cassidy, who plays Sonia Fowler agreed: "He is so beautiful, Lace".

Fans also rushed to congratulate the actress, with one commenting: "Oh look at him... absolutely beautiful."

Lacey recently revealed that Trilby's arrival took her so by surprise that she hadn't even finished filming at EastEnders.

The soap star had to then go back to the EastEnders set just days after welcoming Trilby into the world to finish her final scenes before officially going on maternity leave.
