Jeremy McConnell: 'If Stephanie's baby is my son I will absolutely step up and do what I can to support him'
Former Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis has given birth to her first child, a baby boy.
Her manager, Adam Muddle, said: "We are delighted to confirm that our client Stephanie Davis gave birth to a baby boy on Friday.
"Mother and baby are doing fine."
The news follows reports that the 23-year-old had been in labour for around 48 hours before giving birth naturally in Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Davis's ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell came under fire for holidaying in Thailand in the lead-up to the birth of his son.
The pair first got together after appearing as fellow contestants on Celebrity Big Brother in 2016, after Davis finished a five-year run playing Sinead O'Connor in Hollyoaks.
While Jeremy is refusing to confirm if he is the father of his estranged partner's son, he has reached out and wished her all the best.
"I am delighted that Steph has safely had the baby. Of course if he is my son I will absolutely step up and do what I can to support him."
Ex-Bohs and Shelbourne player McConnell was one of Ireland's most in-demand male models and moved to the UK in 2013 to star in TV show Beauty School Drop Out.
He previously claimed to have slept with "every good-looking Irish model" but insists he is "no player".
