She wrote on Instagram: “Greg and I decided to go their separate ways a few months ago. We remain friends and we will both continue to be happy to cosponsor Daye and would appreciate privacy during these times.
“Thank you to everyone who supported us before, during and after this. ”
Jen, best known for playing Mercedes McQueen in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, started dating Geordie Shore, the original Greg in 2012.
They welcomed their son in June 2017 and Jen described him as her ‘miracle baby’.
She said the nurses who gave birth used the term after finding a knot in the umbilical cord.
Speaking of Lorraine’s dramatic birth, Jennifer said, “As far as the job goes, I really enjoyed it. It was a bit of a challenge. These midwives came along that was absolutely amazing, they came when her heart rate dropped. I think the contractions came a little too early and were long enough
“Her heart rate dropped and those midwives came in and held my hand and made me feel like a super woman. They said: ‘Come on, you are the best pusher in the North East’. Even if there was something wrong, I wouldn’t do it. I didn’t know.
“When he came out, our beautiful little boy, his rope was knotted, and pretty tight too. They say it happens to one in 100 babies. It doesn’t end very well, it can end in a stillborn. It was a pretty tight knot and it keeps oxygen and food from reaching it. But our little man defied all odds and here he is. ”
Former Dancing On Ice star Jennifer said the serious illness started when the rope grew and could have been fatal if the knot tightened.
The most recent photo of Jen and Greg together on her Instagram page is from July 12, and it is not known if they had separated at this point.
She shared a series of adorable family snaps from their day at the park with Daye, captioning them, “Having fun in the sun.”
Greg, who appeared on the MTV show’s first series alongside Vicky Pattison, Gary Beadle and Charlotte Crosby, shared a very similar statement on his own Instagram page.
He also still has pictures of Jen on his Instagram account, proving that they remain close despite their breakup.
