Stephanie Davis has released an intimate video of her in labour with her son Caben.
The 24-year-old actress has kept details of the baby's birth under wraps since he was born at the beginning of January but, as he fast approaches a year old, the brunette beauty has decided to share a clip of her in hospital awaiting his arrival.
Alongside the footage, in which she's got numb legs from an epidural and appears to be heavily-sedated on medication, Stephanie wrote: "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 (sic)"
The former 'Hollyoaks' star also posted a picture of her in tears as Caben nestled into her chest, a photo of him breastfeeding and one of him now in his buggy.
Stephanie split from Caben's father Jeremy McConnell, 28, before she found out she was pregnant, but he refused to believe she was carrying a baby until he was born.
A few weeks after his birth, the 'Celebrity Big Brother' hunk requested a paternity test to prove that he was Caben's biological father and, once he got the result he wanted, he and Stephanie decided to give their relationship another go for their son's sake.
But their romance came crashing down again a few months later when Jeremy was charged with battering the wannabe pop star at her home in Liverpool and he was subsequently dished out a three-year restraining order and community service.
