Jeremy McConnell took a DNA test live on telly to find out if Stephanie Davis' baby is his

This time last year we were engulfed in the saga of Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis' on-and-off again relationship.

The pair met and fell for each other on Celebrity Big Brother, but what followed afterwards was a rake of very public breakups and social media digs, leading to April when Stephanie found out she was pregnant and insisted it was Jeremy's child.

From what we have seen, the Dublin model has stayed clear from Stephanie since and has questioned whether the child is even his, leading to a major backlash from the public. However, Jeremy went on This Morning today with Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to finally give his side of the story.

Jeremy defended his reasons for staying away from Stephanie, insisting the relationship was too toxic for him to be around her while she was pregnant. He also says that he absolutely wants to be part of the baby's life (Caben-Ali who was born on January 13) but that there is no way he could sign the contract that has been proposed to him by Stephanie about the child's future.

"No man in their right mind would sign that. It's disgusting. She's puppeteering the public. I'm sorry, I just can't," Jeremy said.

While they weren't allowed discuss the terms of the contract, Philip agreed, saying,"I've read it and I wouldn't sign it. It would have an impact on your entire life."


They showed Jeremy taking part in a DNA test earlier in the show, and while Philip said they would not be putting the result out there publically, the test would be there if Stephanie wanted to continue with the process.

We did it little one...❤

Jeremy went on to say, "I hope I am the dad. I 110% could be. I would step up. I have never said I am not the father. I'm not fame hungry. I just want reassurance.

"I didn't want any of this. She's made everything so public so now I feel like I have to defend myself. Maybe my silence has been taken as weakness, but that's not the case.

"I've always wanted to do the right thing. I would never let my own flesh and blood get away like that."
