The actress & reality star has been noticeably absent from social media

By now, there’s one thing that many consumers of celebrity gossip are well aware of: the fact that Stephanie Davis loves using social media.

The ex-Hollyoaks actress has been giving her fans frequent little updates on her life – the good and the bad – all throughout 2016, as she’s been through the dizzying highs of love to the heartbreakingly lows of a very public split from her Celebrity Big Brother ex, Jeremy McConnell.

And ever since the discovery that she’s having a baby, her followers have been with her every step of the way. However, a sudden silence from Twitter had fans speculating on her well-being – and whether Baby Davis had made a shock early arrival!

Since Steph, 23, normally makes use of the micro-blogging site daily, fans grew concerned late last week when they noticed that she hadn’t Tweeted since Tuesday 1st November.

‘Hope you and baby ok Steph… we miss you x’ reads a message left by a fan on Friday, with another agreeing a day later that her absence from the site was suspicious.

And despite the fact that she’s not due to give birth until the new year, Steph’s silence even had some speculating that she’d gone into an early labour!

However, a representative for Steph cleared up all the rumours to OK! Online on Sunday (6th November), stating that she’d been admitted into hospital for an undisclosed illness.

‘Stephanie Davis has been subject to a number of rumours online the last few days regarding her pregnancy,’ the statement begins.

‘We can confirm Stephanie has been in hospital since Wednesday 2nd November due to an illness and is currently undergoing further tests.

‘We would like to confirm that Stephanie has not given birth and her unborn baby boy is doing well.’

That settles that, then! For now we’ll all keep watching and waiting – and we hope that Steph and baby make a recovery asap.
