‘Didn’t think I would get through it, but I did’ Stephanie Davis shares intimate video of her labour with son Caben

Stephanie Davis has taken to social media to share an intimate video of her in labour with son Caben, after giving birth to her first child almost a year ago.

The former Hollyoaks star gave birth to son Caben in January, and now she’s been giving her fans and followers an exclusive glimpse on how giving birth was like for her.

Taking to Instagram, the actress shared a video of her while in labour, as well as a series of pictures before and after welcoming her baby boy.

Writing on Instagram, she said: ‘So I felt this was the right time to share these precious moments with you guys. This was me going through what I can only describe the SCARIEST but most AMAZING experience of my LIFE!

So I felt this was the right time to share these precious moments with you guys. This was me going through what I can only describe the SCARIEST but most AMAZING experience of my LIFE! I couldn't believe that I was going to finally see him after my whole pregnancy was very tough and didn't think I would get through it, but I did. I could never imagine my life without him. My best friend in the whole wide world arrived, and now it's nearly a YEAR since he was born!! It's flown SO fast! That was god knows what time in the morning the video, with my mum who was my ROCK, my Aunty gill and 77!!! Year old nanny who sat up with me all night and rubbed my back and got me through them god awful contractions ha , I don't know what I would have done without these strong women in my life during labour haha. It's been me and Caben from the beginning and he will always be my one love, he truly is my best friend and my little prince I may not know what it's like to sleep anymore, brush my hair have a hot cup of tea or eat properly or have just ONE minute to my self haha but I wouldn't change it for the WORLD! . I'm so SO blessed! I'll never forget the day I seen him come into this world… that… NOTHING can buy or ever replace, truly a miracle and blessing from above❤ and now he's this chubby cute little character growing and doing more each day, and I don't know how we got from there to here, but we did, together, and I'm so excited to see what a beautiful caring young chap he will grow into. Can't believe one day he will be bigger than me ha ( he nearly is😂) anyway, so proud of my little one, he's just a ray of sunshine who brings so much happiness in my life❤ I love you son, our very little but powerful team/ family❤ Thankyou for giving me a reason to live and showing me the wonders of life again❤ I love you Caben-Albi George Davis❤ love Mummy❤ me and you till the end baby❤ps, excuse my hair and my shaky lip ( weird shakes them) hahaha😂😂 state of me😂😂❤

The 24-year-old also shared details about how she felt giving birth, and thanked her family – including her mum – for being there for her during the experience.

‘That was god knows what time in the morning the video, with my mum who was my ROCK, my Aunty gill and 77!!! Year old nanny who sat up with me all night and rubbed my back and got me through them god awful contractions ha , I don’t know what I would have done without these strong women in my life during labour’, she wrote.

Stephanie then went on to praise her ‘little prince’, who’s her ‘best friend’ and makes sleepless nights worth it.

‘It’s been me and Caben from the beginning and he will always be my one love, he truly is my best friend and my little prince I may not know what it’s like to sleep anymore, brush my hair have a hot cup of tea or eat properly or have just ONE minute to my self haha but I wouldn’t change it for the WORLD! . I’m so SO blessed! I’ll never forget the day I seen him come into this world… that… NOTHING can buy or ever replace, truly a miracle and blessing from above.’

Stephanie welcomed her first child with Irish model Jeremy McConnell, but the pair are no longer together.

The two met on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother in January 2016, and confirmed they were going to welcome a child together just a few months later, in May.
