Jeremy McConnell is adamant he'll support his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis if he finds out he's the father of her baby
Jeremy McConnell will "step up" and support Stephanie Davis if he's the father of her baby.
The 26-year-old heavily-inked hunk - who is convinced he isn't related to the child - is determined to get a paternity test done on the newborn, whose name is not yet known, as soon as possible following his birth 10 days ago because he's adamant he'll do all he can to ensure the little one has the best upbringing if it turns out that he belongs to him.
He told Star magazine: "I am delighted that Steph has safely had the baby. If he is my son, I will absolutely step up and do what I can to support him. Any timescale for that is in Steph's hands now. I did reach out to her some weeks ago but didn't hear back."
The Irish heartthrob was in Thailand when the 23-year-old beauty - who he split from in May last year following a series of blazing rows - went into labour but he caught the first flight back to Dublin, where he lives, so that he could kick start the paternity test when he heard she had given birth.
A source said: "He's told friends he really wants to sort the situation out and find out if he is the father. If he is the dad of his child, then he's determined to step up to the plate."
But it seems Jeremy isn't the only person who thinks he may be the father of the little one as 'Ex on the Beach' star Josh Ritchie - who the actress had a fling with last year - is worried he may be the dad of the baby and has been in contact with Stephanie regarding his concern.
He said while the star was in labour: "I have spoken to Steph. I slept with Steph a year ago. I'm worried - she could turn up on my doorstep with the baby any time soon."
