For months she and ex Jeremy McConnell have sparred publicly over the paternity of her unborn child. But late on Tuesday evening Celebrity Big Brother star Stephanie Davis let her 550,000 Instagram followers know that she is pushing past the pain when she uploaded a bedtime selfie along with a self-affirming caption.’Steph is well and truly back!’ she wrote. ‘I feel like I have my spark back in my eye, which for so long the lights were switched off.’
The Instagram post came just hours after Steph appeared on Loose Women, where she spoke candidly about her pregnancy.The actress admitted she sobbed on her ‘hands and knees’ after telling her ex she was pregnant and questioned bringing the child into such a ‘toxic relationship’.Stephanie – who met Jeremy whilst on Celebrity Big Brother inJanuary – admitted that after falling pregnant whilst on holiday in Cape Verde, her relationship with him became increasingly traumatic.And following a series of vile phone calls, in which she rowed extensively with the Irish model, 26, she revealed that she broke down on her bedroom floor and considered an abortion.’At one point I broke down and I was on my hands and knees and I couldn’t take anymore,’ explained Stephanie fighting back tears.’I thought he was going to save me from my past but he turned out to be just the same.
‘I just lost it and I thought I’m living the same nightmare. I thought to myself it wasn’t fair to bring this baby into such a toxic relationship.’ Casting her mind back to how the baby was conceived, she conceded: ‘Looking at it now – outside the situation – it wasn’t the right thing to do considering the relationship and what was going on.
‘But, it just kind of happened… And it was a bit of a shock, because I never would have got pregnant if i thought I was going to go it alone.’ MailOnline has contacted a representative of Jeremy’s for comment. However, the former Hollyoaks actress sought help form a therapist – although she only visited the professional for help once – the next day, and decided to keep her unborn child.And though she has the support of her closeknit family, she explained Jeremy has been adamant about ignoring her pregnancy. Explaining that she has been honest with her former love, Stephanie revealed she and the model were actively trying for a bay – and ironically it was his idea.’Jeremy is 100 per cent the father, he knows that. He was trying to have a baby with me.’I cried my eyes out, because Jeremy wanted a baby and we were trying for one,and kept saying, “I want to get you pregnant”.
