Irish model Jeremy McConnell has hit back at trolls who claim he has negated his responsibilities towards son Caben-Albi George, 2, since learning he is to become a father for the second time.
“A lot of people say I don’t care about my child because I’m moving on but what options was I left with? I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t.
“People say to me “Why are you acting like you have just one child?” But there’s a time and a place. Any one that has half a brain cell needs to understand the reason I am not part of Caben’s life is because not every situation can be fixed.”
The 35-year old who is expecting a baby girl with girlfriend Katie McCreath, says he’s agreed to step back from Caben’s life to ‘protect him,’ and right now his main focus is on his unborn daughter.
“I protect my son as much as I can. It’s not neglecting, it’s protecting. I’m a very loving father. This is better for Caben.
‘My priority is my baby girl because it’s in my control – I have rights over that. My main focus is my girl.”
The once reality TV star spent who’s relationship with Caben’s mum, actress Stephanie Davis, was volatile and wildly covered in the press, readily admits that he can’t fault her at all in the way she is raising their son.
‘I can’t speak about it much for legal reasons, but Steph is doing a great job. She’s doing really well and I know she’s a good mum.”
