Stephanie Davis has thanked fans for their support during her pregnancy, suggesting she could be ready to break her silence.

The former Hollyoaks actress, 23, revealed in May that she's expecting her first child, but her ex-boyfriend, Irish model Jeremy McConnell, 26, has publicly claimed he doesn't believe the unborn baby is his.

So far, Stephanie hasn't publicly responded to Jeremy or given any interviews about her pregnancy.

But could that change?

Today she tweeted – and deleted: "Thanks for all your love and support. Stephanie." Alongside hashtags including "happy", "healthy", "laughing", "over everything" and "will be revealed soon."

Does that latter mean she's getting ready to talk?

Stephanie and Jeremy met in Celebrity Big Brother in January and began a relationship once the show ended, but it was a rocky romance with several splits in the public eye, before they ended things for good in May.

After Steph announced her pregnancy in May, Jeremy has told Irish magazine TVNow that Stephanie informed him she'd had a period since their most recent split, so he doesn't believe her baby is his.

Jeremy said: "I'm not going to be a dad. If she is pregnant, it's not mine. If I was a dad, I'd be 100% no, 110%, the best dad in the world. But you'll see in the future that it's not my kid, and she'll look like a mug."

"Look, if she is pregnant it's not my kid. She had her period. We had been broken up."

Stephanie has so far kept silent… but she did favourite a tweet overnight from @Panderoona that read: "He's just an ill informed idiot. He thinks it's not his and it is. He's going to look the mug."

Is that her way of responding to Jez?

Sources close to Stephanie have told Reveal that Jeremy's denial is "totally unfair."

"These accusations are causing great stress to Stephanie. Treating a pregnant woman like this is totally unfair, given all the changes she is going through," said an insider.

"For Jeremy to say he isn't the father is going to backfire on him totally," they added. "He should reign in what he is saying because he will have serious egg on his face when the baby is born.

"Women so early on in their pregnancies are very vulnerable, and to publicly attempt to shame Stephanie like this has taken what should be a happy time for her into misery."

A rep for Stephanie had no comment to make, but they have previously confirmed Stephanie is pregnant. Steph's rep told the Daily Star: "Our client is categorically pregnant. We do not need to continue repeating this."
