Jack Fincham was every inch the proud dad as he shared a sweet snap with his baby daughter Blossom on Thursday.
Jack’s post came just weeks after Blossom’s mother Casey Ranger accused him of deceiving fans by presenting himself as a doting father, and claimed he’d only seen his daughter three times in eight months.
Cute: Jack Fincham, 29, was every inch the proud dad in a sweet snap with his baby daughter Blossom on Thursday, as he urged his fans to ‘stay strong’ during lockdown
Holding his adorable daughter, Jack penned the caption: ‘Lockdown 2, sending positive vibes and lots of love. Stay strong we’ve got this.’
On Thursday the UK was plunged into a month-long lockdown to try and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The reality star had been hit by accusations that he’d barely seen his daughter and had been deceiving fans through snaps he shared of Blossom on social media.
Drama: Jack’s post came just weeks after Blossom’s mother Casey Ranger accused him of deceiving fans by presenting himself as a doting father
Casey said she felt she had ‘no option’ but to speak up after watching Jack discuss their daughter during an appearance on Love Island: What Happened Next.
In an impassioned post, she said: ‘The older I get the more I realise the important of protecting my own inner peace, I started to realise the beauty of not reacting to certain people & certain situations.
‘In the last week I’ve also realised that keeping certain things so close to my chest isn’t always the best thing to do and that suppressing certain emotions to ‘keep the peace’ will only have a negative impact on my own emotional well being.
‘After keeping quiet for so long I now feel like I’m being backed into a corner and have no option but to speak up for the sake of my little girl & my own peace of mind.
‘It was extremely difficult to watch Jack speak about Blossom on the TV show earlier this week, he spoke in such a deceiving way that tried to present himself as a ‘father’.
Speaking out: 10-month-old Blossom’s mother Casey accused Jack of deceiving fans, and claimed he’d only seen Blossom three times in eight months
Her version of events: Casey said she felt she had ‘no option’ but to speak up after watching Jack discuss their daughter
‘A father who hasn’t gone out of way once to buy his daughter a teddy bear.
‘Any one who watched it may have been fooled, but the truth is, he’s seen Blossom three times in eight months!!!!
‘The image on his phone (that he kissed on the show) was a photo I’d sent to his mum a couple of months ago. Also, his ‘gratitude rock’ shown on his story is a rock my sister helped my niece paint for Blossom during lockdown (this must have been left at his Mums in June when he last saw Blossom as it was in her baby bag)
‘It angers me how someone in the public eye can easily twist & manipulate a situation, especially one that involves my daughter.
‘I will not tolerate Jack using Blossom’s name to try and rebuild his public profile as a ‘dad’ and I think it’s only right to speak the truth he puts on such a deceiving act
‘An insider has also said in the paper this week that “he’s also a father so any girlfriend he welcomes into his life needs to be understanding of this” this is complete & utter nonsense as the last time he was Blossom was in June so I’m not quite sure where this false information has come from.
Love: Since Casey gave birth to Blossom earlier this year, Jack has shared photographs with his daughter on his Instagram page on several occasions
‘Don’t be fooled by what you see. I’ve kept quiet for far too long and had to sit back and watch this person use my daughter for his own self gratification. I hope you can understand how difficult it’s been to write this and to speak publicly about such a private matter involving my daughter.’
Since Casey gave birth to Blossom earlier this year, Jack has shared photographs with his daughter on his Instagram page on several occasions.
He announced her arrival in January with a sweet snap where he cradled the newborn in his arms, alongside a lengthy post.
Jack, who was previously in a relationship with Dani Dyer, described the arrival as the ‘best thing to ever happen to him’ as he shared the news.
Surprise! He stunned fans in January when he revealed he’d become a dad for the first time to Blossom, explaining he was still ‘great friends’ with ex Casey
