Jeremy McConnell's father has died.
The 27-year-old Irish model has been left devastated after his father passed away on Friday (03.03.17), following a short battle with cancer.
A representative for Jeremy told The Sun Online: "On Friday 3rd March 2017 Jeremy McConnell's father passed away after a short battle with cancer.
"We ask that Jeremy is given space and privacy at this incredibly sad time."
Jeremy previously revealed that his mother, brother and sister died within months of each other, when he was a teenager.
He said: "When I was 15 I was at my cousin's and my mum fell asleep.
"I got back about two hours later and she was gone - she had a brain haemorrhage.
"Shortly after that my brother broke his neck in a motorbike accident.
"After that, my sister had a heart attack - she suffered with epilepsy. All in the space of 15 months.
"Of course I miss them, I loved them dearly, but I think that's what levelled me out a bit - I express myself the way I want to. I just grew up really fast."
Meanwhile, news of Jeremy's sad loss came just hours after he shared the first picture of himself with his newborn son Caben-Albi.
Although Jeremy had denied he was the father of his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis' baby throughout her pregnancy, he recently relocated to Liverpool to be near the tot after a paternity test revealed the baby is his.
Jeremy shared a picture of himself cuddling the baby on his Instagram page and added a simple heart emoji.
