Jeremy McConnell feels "blessed" after meeting his five-week-old son Caben
Jeremy McConnell is "feeling blessed" after finally meeting his baby son.
The 26-year-old 'Celebrity Big Brother' star denied he was the father of ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis' child Caben until he was born five weeks ago but now that he has met the newborn, Jeremy is completely smitten.
He tweeted: "Had an amazing few days, feeling blessed."
And he previously shared a picture of the tot and wrote: "I'll love this monkey with every bit of me."
Jeremy travelled to Liverpool, from his home in Dublin, Ireland, earlier this month to spend some time with Stephanie, 23, and the baby.
A source explained: "Jeremy is still in Liverpool with Stephanie at the moment. They're using this time to get to know each other again away from the cameras and things are going well. It's been an emotional couple of days for them both but they're beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. Jeremy was keen not to miss any more time with Caben and Stephanie agrees it's important for him to be there."
The heartthrob jetted to Liverpool as soon as he got the results from the paternity test, which revealed he was the father of little Caben, because he didn't want to miss anymore time with the tot.
An insider explained previously: "Jeremy finally got to meet his son for the first time - and spent some time with Steph too.
"Caben is well and truly their priority now - nothing else matters other than the health and happiness of the baby."
The brunette beauty fell in love with the heavily-inked heartthrob on 'Celebrity Big Brother' last year, but after months of breaking up and making up over allegations he'd cheated on her, they decided to call time on their romance in April.
