Former Celebrity Big Brother star Stephanie Davis gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Friday 13th January – and now she’s finally revealed his name.
Stephanie has chosen a double barrelled option, Caben-Albi, for her son, and given him the middle name George.
The ex-Hollyoaks star, 23, told OK! magazine that the name paid tribute to her grandfather Albert, who passed away last year.
‘It’s not actually a name I’d heard before, but it popped into my mind and stuck there. I wanted to give him an unusual name but I also wanted him to be called Albi after my granddad, so I decided to combine the two,’ she explained.
She also shared the first full picture of her son with the magazine, although just a day after the birth of her baby, she’d already taken to Twitter to share a more intimate snap of his hand with her friends, family and fans.
She used the social media site to share a gorgeous photo of her little boy and thanked followers for their support along the way. The baby boy was dressed in a white baby grow and snuggled in white blankets.
The sweet tweet showed how full of love the new mum is feeling, reading, ‘The day my world became complete. Ive been overwhelmed & so in love with you. Words could never describe.. Thank you for all your support!❤’
Followers flooded Stephanie’s tweet with warm wishes and messages of congratulations, liking the tweet over 17,000 times. One Twitter user wrote, ‘you did it steph! Lovely precious picture ❤❤❤ enjoy every second and take it all in, congratulations, big love to you both 😘xx’ while another agreed, ‘oh wow Steph, this pic is unbelievably precious, enjoy her single second with him, lots of love always ❤️💙 xx’
The relationship between Stephanie and her ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell has reportedly been turbulent since coming to an end last year, with the male model openly disputing that Stephanie’s baby is his.
A statement from Jeremy since the birth reads: ‘I am delighted that Steph has safely had the baby, of course if he is my son I will absolutely step up and do what I can to support him.
‘Any timescale for that is in Steph’s hands now. I did reach out to her some weeks ago but didn’t hear back.’

Speaking to OK! magazine about the father of her child Stephanie said, ‘I’m not really bothered about him any more. I don’t think he ever loved me, because you don’t lie to or abandon someone you love.
‘A baby doesn’t fix a toxic relationship, but if he hadn’t lied and cheated, it wouldn’t have been toxic. He also shouldn’t have decided he wanted a child.’
Thankfully Stephanie seems very happy with her little bundle of joy, we think a big congratulations is in order!
