Jeremy McConnell wishes he could have helped Stephanie Davis choose her baby name - if it turns out he's the father
Jeremy McConnell thinks it's "disgusting" that his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis has named her newborn baby son after some "random" guy she met at a nightclub.
The 26-year-old Irish hunk - who is yet to find out for definite whether he's the father of the tot - is devastated that the former 'Hollyoaks' actress has given her three-week-old son Caben-Albi his forename after she met someone with the odd moniker last year.
Speaking to The Sun Online, he said: "Regardless of the name, if she met a fella on a night out and named the baby after him then it's disgusting and hurtful.
"If that's my child, he's been named after a guy she met in a club and I'll be calling him that for the rest of his life. I wish she could have waited until after the DNA test. It doesn't matter what the name it, it's the principle."
Stephanie revealed she'd chosen Caben's name before he'd been born after she met someone with the unusual moniker while holidaying in Jersey over the summer period.
She said at the time: "I've picked my boy's name! It's not Albi but that will definitely be a middle name. I'm going to keep it a secret for now but I will say it's something different - I've not heard it before! It's like a movie star name. We got it when a guy started talking to me while I was with my friends recently and he said his name when he left - we just all looked at each other and knew, so thanks to him! My mum loves it but my brother's weren't so sure to start with - but I think they want a proper lad's name."
Meanwhile, Jeremy - who started dating Stephanie after they met in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house last January - is patiently waiting for a DNA test to be carried out on the 23-year-old beauty's behalf so that he can know for sure he's the father.
However, he's already convinced the tot is his because he looks like his sister.
He explained: "The child is beautiful I can see a resemblance to myself. But he looks more like my sister. He looks like me and I want to be the father, but I just need that reassurance, just for myself."
