Former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ star Jeremy McConnell, who has two-year-old son Caben-Albi with his ex Stephanie Davis, is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Katie McCreath.
The former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ star – who has son Caben-Albi, two, with ex Stephanie Davis – and his girlfriend Katie McCreath are expecting their first child together, and they told their family and friends their happy news over the weekend, revealing their baby is due in December.
A source close to the couple told The Sun Online:
“Jeremy and Katie are ecstatic. The baby marks a brand new chapter in their lives.
“They are both so excited and can’t wait to welcome their little son or daughter. Jeremy has found someone that he really loves and wants to be with forever. They can’t wait to become parents and start a family together.
“Katie has really supported Jeremy through the tough times and helped him grow as a person. Anyone who knows Jeremy knows that having a family and being a dad is a dream he has always wanted.”
The couple – who have been together for more than a year – shared a number of images with pals, including one of their pet pooch Patsy sitting in front of a black board which contained the message:
“Mum and dad are getting me a human for Christmas.”
It comes just days after the 29-year-old model admitted he feels “sick” when he looks back at his past mistakes, as he opened up about his problems with cocaine abuse, describing the Class A drug as “the devil”.
“I feel sick when I look back at myself, I’m so ashamed. I was p***ing money up against the wall to get that buzz. I was only focused on was good looking women and drink.
“Then I was offered cocaine when I was 20 at a party and it took over. I remember the feeling it gave me, it was a buzz.
“I didn’t even start drinking until I was 18 as I was so into my football and fitness but cocaine was easy to fall into as it was everywhere – I didn’t have to go to any lengths to get it as it was so cheap and easy to get. I started using it more and more.”
Jeremy was jailed for 34 days over Christmas 2017 for breaching a community order, and he was previously given a 20-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, after he was found guilty of assaulting his then-partner, ‘Hollyoaks’ star Stephanie.
