Stephanie Davis has said she's finally starting to enjoy her pregnancy after it was "hell" at the start.

The former Hollyoaks actress, 23, announced in May that she's expecting her first child, but has been faced with accusations she's faking, a health scare and ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell publicly doubting he's the father.

But now she's finally released photos of her baby bump and silenced her critics, Stephanie says she's thriving.

In a tweet to fans, Stephanie said: "Thank U for all my lovely comments,my pregnancy has been made hell up untill recently & now im Loving it. At least I can sleep easy at night (sic)."

Was that last remark a dig at Jeremy?

After the baby news was announced in May, he claimed he couldn't be the father as Stephanie had her period following the couple's last split. They met on Celebrity Big Brother in January and split in May.

But she's consistently insisted he IS the dad.

Following her baby bump pictures and interview this week, Jeremy tweeted: "Everything will be dealt with accordingly and mature, but a baby doesn't fix a toxic relationship, end of discussion."

He also said of those quotes he wasn't the father: "Article I done months ago, time will tell, I don't need to reiterate again. We were broke up for weeks."

Stephanie reacted by tweeting and deleting a message that read: "Ps… U were that conceded u would be a dad u could have asked for a pre DNA test, don't pretend u give one f**k. Only piping up for the press."

She also tweeted: "Gob sh*te. Right off for a nice day. Only 1 with egg on their face now is him. Hope every1 has a fab day. Thank you SO much for [lovely]comments (sic)."

Meanwhile, Stephanie told fans on Instagram this week she was looking forward to her next scan appointment. Alongside a photo of a baby's foot, she said: "Cannot wait to hold my own little baby's foot! So excited! Roll on my next scan Thursday! Cannot wait to see my beautiful baby wriggling about again."
