Jeremy McConnell Takes A Paternity Test On Live TV To Determine If He's The Father Of Stephanie Davis's Baby
Jeremy McConnell takes a paternity test on This Morning.
Appearing on ITV's This Morning to discuss the ongoing situation with Steph and baby Caben-Albi, he took the opportunity to make some headway on that DNA test Steph Davis was so keen on.
Revealing that if the results come back positive he will 100% step-up to being a dad, Jeremy said: "I’ve never once said I wasn’t the father, I’m not fame hungry."
He added: “I want to set the record straight, I just said there was a month from April to May I didn’t know about and I want reassurance. When she makes it public it has to be dealt with, I have to defend myself."
So, with the help of AlphaBiolabs DNA Testing - the same company used by the Jeremy Kyle Show - Jeremy willingly took a paternity test live on the show at 9am.
All that's needed now is a sample from baby Caben, which is something that Steph will have to approve when she's ready to get the process going.
Then, once Caben's sample has been submitted, it will take roughly twenty-four hours to work out if their DNA is a match, and if Jeremy really is the father.
If the results are positive, Jeremy has announced he wants to be involved in the baby's life: “I hope I am the dad, people are thinking that I’m a bad person, thinking I won’t step up and I would.
He added: "I want to be a dad I want to stand up [and be there] but I’m not being given the opportunity.”
Now all we can do is wait.
