Yesterday (17 July), Stephanie appeared on Loose Women to give her first televised interview since she found out she is expecting. The former Hollyoaks star opened up about the tough start she has had with her pregnancy, thanks to the drama she has had with ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell and the negative comments she has been subject to from online trolls, and showcased her baby bump and a scan photo of her little one onscreen.
After stopping by to see the Loose Women ladies, Steph, who is nearly 14 weeks pregnant, embraced the London sunshine and treated fans to yet another baby bump photo on Instagram.
Steph first unveiled her baby bump on the front cover of a weekly magazine last week, and since then, there's been no stopping her. The mum-to-be has been proudly flaunting her blossoming tum on social media, silencing those that doubted whether Stephanie was actually pregnant.
In her latest snap, Steph can be seen wearing a stylish off-the-shoulder dress, that's fitted design perfectly highlighted her bump. The 23-year-old cradled her stomach while pouting for the camera and gushed alongside her post: "Out for dinner with bump and gang. London I love you it's like being abroad! Feel amazing."
She received a slew of compliments from fans, with one user commenting: "U look amazing pregnancy suits u (sic)." Another said: "You look so good pregnant."
Others sent Stephanie plenty of support, telling her they had tuned into her Loose Women interview.
On the show, Steph came over all emotional as she discussed the criticism she has faced from trolls. She told the panel: "I just had these disgusting trolls. I think because I was so emotional at the time and dealing with stuff... they were saying stuff like, 'I hope she loses the baby.'
"I was getting bullied because I wasn't posting anything, but because of the stress I wanted to make sure I got to the 12 week safe mark because anything could happen. With all the stress that I was going through, I didn't want to put that out there and jinx it.
"I did post stuff and then it was, 'Oh, she's faking it.' It was really awful. That one comment can stick you with all day."
Stephanie did add, though: "The bad comments are out of thousands and thousands of amazing comments that have really lifted me up."
Steph first confirmed her pregnancy back in May. She revealed it had been a "shock" to find out she was expecting, shortly after she split with boyfriend Jeremy McConnell. They had started dating after appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in January, but split for the fourth and final time five months later.
Fans then saw the exes bitterly fallout on social media as Steph's pregnancy came to light, but now brushing that aside, Stephanie has insisted the "baby is her priority" and she is now focusing on herself.
