STEPHANIE Davis has poured her heart out to fans about the harsh reality of being a single mum.
The actress, 25, said she’s been through “a hell of a lot” but credited her son Caben-Albi with getting her through the tough times.
Stephanie posted a picture her carrying her son home from the hospital after he was born.
She wrote alongside it: “This photo Means A lot to me.
“Caben you are the light of my life! It’s not been easy, from the start even our pregnancy was really tough…
“When it’s suppose to be one of the happiest times of someone’s life…
“But you kept me going, you got me back up again whenever I fell down and I carried on fighting…for you…”
Stephanie went on to thank him for being a “beautiful amazing… loving young boy.”
She went on to confess the struggles of raising him alone, writing candidly: “Not every day is smooth sailing and sometimes we struggle and we just about get through a day…
“But we get each other through it…
“We have been through a hell of a lot son… but we have done it and got through it… together . I love you son!”
The actress split from Caben-Albi’s dad Jeremy McConnell shortly after finding out she was expecting their baby.
She went through the pregnancy and birth alone last year, but later reunited with Jeremy.
The relationship later crumbled again after a bust-up at a hotel in London, which left Jeremy, 28, with an assault conviction.
He served 34 days behind bars for attacking Steph.
