Stephanie Davis' son's umbilical cord falls off
Stephanie Davis couldn't stop crying when her newborn son's umbilical cord fell off - exactly a week after he was a born
Stephanie Davis' baby son's umbilical cord fell off today (20.01.17).
The 23-year-old actress cried with happiness when the stump attached to her little one's belly button, which connects the placenta to the fetus, dropped off - exactly a week after he was born on January 13 - and he marked the occasion by peeing on her.
Taking to her Twitter account on Friday (20.01.17), the brunette beauty said: "OFFICIALLY ONE WEEK OLD!Celebrated by his umbilical cord fallen off and a big wee on mummy Tears of happiness My world! My baby boy (sic)."
The former 'Hollyoaks' star was discharged from hospital three days ago with her little bundle of joy, whose name is not yet known, and she squealed with excitement at the fact she and her newborn can now start the first chapter of the rest of their lives together.
Taking to her Twitter account earlier this week, the brunette beauty uploaded a black-and-white photograph of her carrying her baby in his car seat as they made their way out of the maternity suite at a hospital in Liverpool alongside the caption: "We did it little one... By far my favourite chapter yet... (sic)," followed by a red heart emoji.
Stephanie gave birth to her son on January 13 following a gruelling 48-hour labour and, although mother and baby were said to be doing well, doctors requested she stay in so that she could keep an eye on her and her brand new beautiful addition.
Her representative said at the time: "We can confirm our client Stephanie Davis today gave birth to a baby boy in Liverpool. Mother and baby are doing fine."
Stephanie didn't have the easiest of pregnancies as she was struck down with acute morning sickness in the first and second trimester and then she experienced some bleeding, which she feared was a sign of her losing her baby, in the third trimester.
However, doctors quickly established that her baby was fine and she had colitis.
Stephanie then started experiencing Braxton Hicks - irregular practice contractions that can be felt around mid-pregnancy and increase in frequency and strength as the pregnancy progresses - and pressure at the bottom of her stomach last month.
And things are set to get even more complicated for the actress as her ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell - who has denied he's the father of the baby - is determined to have a paternity test done as soon as possible in order to know if he's really the dad.
