Jeremy McConnell is "delighted" by the news Stephanie Davis has given birth to a baby boy.
The 26-year-old hunk has always denied being the father of the former 'Hollyoaks' star's child, but after the 23-year-old actress welcomed her son into the world on Friday (13.01.17), he has vowed to "step up" and support the little boy if paternity tests prove he is the dad.
He told The Sun Online: "I am delighted that Steph has safely had the baby, of course if he is my son I will absolutely step up and do what I can to support him."
And Jeremy insisted he has been in touch with his former girlfriend, but she has snubbed his attempts to speak about the situation.
He added: "Any timescale for that is in Steph's hands now.
"I did reach out to her some weeks ago but didn't hear back."
A spokesperson for the actress confirmed yesterday she had given birth in Liverpool following a 48-hour labour.
They said: "We can confirm our client Stephanie Davis today gave birth to a baby boy in Liverpool. Mother and baby are doing fine."
Stephanie previously claimed she had reached out to the 'Beauty School Cop Out' star on a number of occasions but never heard from him, and so stopped contacting him about her pregnancy.
She said last year: "He doesn't deserve to be there [at the birth]. I don't think he wants to be there either. I don't think I could ever forgive him for how he's been.
"I used to send him scan photos but he doesn't care and he never has. It's just me and my son now. I never thought he'd be that type of guy."
