Steph is preparing for more than just motherhood...
Stephanie Davis is busy making final preparations for her new life as a mum, with the birth of her baby boy just weeks away.
But the pregnant star has made it clear in a new Instagram message that she’ll be taking on more than just motherhood when her son arrives…
Steph, 23, appeared to make a dig at her ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell on Wednesday when she posted an image reading: ‘It takes one rad mama to be a father too’
This of course refers to the fact that the actress will be a single parent as she split from 26-year-old Jez shortly before announcing she was expecting in May.
Not only that but he has publicly denied that the child is his despite Steph saying so, and the former couple appear to have had no contact at all for several months.
Fans have been showing their support for Steph following the emotional message, with one commenting: ‘You be a great mammy & daddy all the best to u @stephaniedavis88 x’
Another wrote: ‘your going to be a wonderful mum 💗x #singleparentsrule’
Steph recently experienced a bit of a scare during her pregnancy when she had to be admitted to hospital after waking up with ‘excruciating pain’.
This didn’t have an effect on her frosty relationship with Jeremy though. When asked during an appearance on Loose Women if he’d called her during the incident, Steph replied: ‘No, don’t be silly.’
She’s also made it clear that she doesn’t want to talk about him and their feud shows no signs of dying down.
Jeremy recently denied rumours that he might want to reunite with his ex – who he met and fell for on Celebrity Big Brother at the start of the year – and stressed that he’s still untrusting of her claim that he’s the father of her baby.
‘I will never be getting back with her, to clarify what I’ve said for months,’ he told The Mirror. ‘[I am] definitely getting a paternity test.’
Despite this ongoing war of words, Steph is excited about the impending arrival of her son and has said that she’s been working extra hard so that she can provide for him once he’s here. Awww.
