The soap star removed the comments from the post.
Meanwhile, Greg last appeared on Jennifer’s social media during a family day out in July.
When did Jennifer and Greg start dating?
Jennifer started dating former Geordie Shore star Greg back in 2012.
The couple welcomed their son Daye in June 2017, with Jen sharing the news on Instagram.
She captioned a photo: “My boys” with two blue heart emojis.
The Channel 4 star previously revealed she was relieved Greg didn’t proposed to her on her birthday in 2018.
The actress confessed on Loose Women: “I actually thought he proposed to be on my birthday.
“I thought he was going to and I was like, ‘I’m too tired for this, can we do it another day?’
“He bought me this ring, a gorgeous ring for my birthday from him and Daye. He got out the ring box and I was just a mess.
“I had just finished work, finished bathing Daye and I was so tired. I thought, ‘Please don’t do this now,’ and he said, ‘No, It’s just a ring!’”
What has Jennifer said about motherhood?
Jennifer is a proud mum to three-year-old son Daye – but it isn’t without its struggles.
During an interview with The Mirror, Jen admitted: “It is really, really hard. You feel like you are constantly on a conveyer belt and I can never ever stop.
“Even when you have a night off, you don’t really have a night off.”
