‘I didn’t want to be here’ Steph Davis says her pregnancy saved her


Love her or loathe her, there’s no denying that Stephanie Davis has had a fairly rough 2016.

After being publicly derided for cheating on her partner, Sam Reece, with Jeremy McConnell while in the Big Brother house, the former Hollyoaks star became public enemy number one at the beginning of the year.

However, things started to look up for the aspiring singer when her relationship with Dubliner Jeremy appeared to flourish outside the house, before it all went downhill in the glare of the media spotlight.

After more ups and downs than a seesaw, the couple finally called time on their relationship just a few weeks before Stephanie revealed she was pregnant with Jeremy’s child.

While the 23-year-old indeed used social media as a platform to give her side of the story, this decision left her vulnerable to online trolls who poured scorn on her posts and even questioned the validity of her pregnancy claims.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Stephanie confessed that her ex-boyfriend’s attitude in the aftermath of their split left her at her lowest ebb.

"I wouldn’t be alive now if it wasn’t for this baby,’ she revealed during the interview. "Not only was I heartbroken about our split but I was pregnant and all by myself.”

“Then he was throwing all sorts of accusations at me, both privately and on social media, and I couldn’t handle it,” she added.

Exceptionally close to her family, Stephanie revealed that she confided in her parents, saying: ‘I told my parents that I didn’t want to be here anymore and they were so worried that I was going to do something stupid."

"It’s been the worst time of my life – I was suicidal but it gave me something to live for," she added.

Proving that she’s picked herself up after the public fall-out, Stephanie says she's now focused solely on her future, insisting: “I feel like a strong independent woman, I’m going to be the best mum ever.”
