The re-invention of Jeremy McConnell from baby-denying party boy into Dilf Du Jour continues apace this weekend, after the reality star and sometime model posted a photo of himself cradling his son, Caben-Albi.
Jeremy famously questioned whether he was even Caben’s real father just a few months ago publicly slamming his ex and mother of his child, actress Stephanie Davis.
However, following the birth and a rumoured DNA test, the pair have buried the hatchet and are now co-parenting together.
Earlier this week, Stephanie’s rep thanked fans for their support and claimed that she and Jeremy were doing what was best for Caben: “Stephanie wants to address the rumours that have been reported in the press over the last few days regarding herself and Jeremy.
"At this present time they’re co-parenting and it works.
"Together they’re discussing Caben’s wants and needs and deciding what’s best. Caben will always be their number one priority and being the best parents to their little boy is paramount to them both.
"Stephanie would like to thank everyone for all the support that they continue to give”.
The three have been spending time together in Liverpool in order for Jeremy to bond properly with his son and work out their next steps.
Last Friday, Jeremy tweeted: ‘Had an amazing few days, feeling blessed’.
A source said at the time: “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 out on any more time with Caben and Stephanie agrees it’s important for him to be there.”
Jeremey – who met Stephanie on Celebrity Big Brother, claimed he was the child’s father after a paternity test was taken. He then took to Twitter after receiving the results, posting a picture of Caben and writing: “Happiest man alive, my new focus.”
“I’ll love this monkey with every bit of me.”
