Stephanie Davis confessed that she felt it was the appropriate time to share the “precious moments” from the birth of her son Caben-Albi with fans on social media.
The former Hollyoaks actress, who shares her son with Jeremy McConnell, posted the series of emotional hospital photos from last year, almost a year on, ahead of his first birthday.
The Celebrity Big Brother star shared several pics of herself in the delivery room before the big moment, as well as a video building up to his birth.
Stephanie also posted a photo of herself crying while cradling her newborn and breastfeeding him for the first time.
The actress and singer wrote in a long caption alongside the images: “This was me going through what I can only describe the SCARIEST but most AMAZING experience of my LIFE!
After confessing that she didn’t think she’d get through her “very tough” pregnancy, Stephanie gushed: “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!”

The 24 year old took the time to thank her family for their help, especially during her labour, including her 77 year old grandmother who: “Sat up with me all night and rubbed my back and got me through them god awful contractions.”
Stephanie admitted that her life has changed beyond recognition, leaving her little time for sleep or even “have just ONE minute to my self”, but stressed that she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“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”, she gushed.
“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 [heart emoji]”, continued the actress.
Bursting with pride over her growing “little one”, Stephanie praised his character and the man he’ll grow into, confessing: “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”, concluded the mum-of-one.
