Jeremy McConnell is 'happiest man alive' as he reveals he's the father

Jeremy McConnell is "the happiest man alive" after discovering he's the father of Stephanie Davis' baby.

The 26-year-old hunk had a DNA test live on TV earlier this week to find out whether three-week-old Caben-Albi was his biological child and it seems the results have returned confirming he's the dad and he's over the moon.

Writing on Twitter, he captioned a sweet close-up photograph of Caben-Alibi: "I'll love this monkey with every bit of me...

He added on Instagram: "Happiest man alive , my new focus."

Jez previously said he'll fight Stephanie for joint custody if her newborn turned out to be his and is adamant he won't just fade into the background.

He said: "If I am the father of Stephanie's baby then I 100 per cent want joint custody. I am serious about being a good dad if the child is mine.

"If I need to go through the courts to get access to my son then so be it - I will take the necessary action to make sure I am a part of my son's life."

The heavily-inked heartthrob - who currently resides in Dublin, Ireland - is also willing to fly to Liverpool, where Stephanie is based, "every weekend" because he wants to make sure that he has a strong relationship with the little one.

Jeremy and Stephanie began dating after they met in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in January last year but their relationship came to an end in April following a series of blazing rows on holiday.

However, they could be set for a reunion if reality TV bosses get their own way as the pair are reportedly "in talks" for an explosive return to the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house this summer.

A source said: "They aren't on speaking terms at the moment but going back to where it all started for them in the Big Brother house may be exactly what they need to move forward - and viewers would love it."
