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, her 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, months after Stephanie finished a five-year run playing Sinead O’Connor in Hollyoaks.
She first came into the public eye when she took part in the BBC talent-spotting show Over The Rainbow in 2010.
Steph Davis’ pregnancy timeline…
This is the pic that Steph posted to drop the major hint that she was expecting. Shortly after she deleted it but it did leave fans wondering…
Early in her pregnancy, the actress was knocked to the ground in an assault – her attacker took pictures and shared them on Twitter. He wrote: “Just rock bottomed that big brother s**g, pass it on.”
After ex boyfriend Jeremy McConnell denied knowing that Steph was pregnant, her followers bombarded her with messages claiming that she wasn’t really pregnant.
Because at this point, Steph hadn’t revealed her bump, followers claimed she was having a ‘fake’ pregnancy for attention.
How wrong they were!
These pictures of Steph drinking what appeared to be pints of lager only added fuel to the fire of the speculation that she was pretending to be pregnant. She hit back, claiming she was only drinking orange juice.
Having kept her body under wraps, she finally revealed her bump on the front of OK! magazine.
Steph then treated fans to the first ever shot of her bare bump; forming a heart around her belly button, this shot was super duper cute.
Steph continued to receive abuse from internet bullies, with one particularly disgusting tweet being: “I hope you lose your baby.”
Steph was strong, and hit back at the trolls by writing: “Yano, lately I’ve had to accept that some people online & in general are down right evil and heartless…I don’t let it get to me anymore.”
