Alex Reid had a Father’s Day that he’ll never forget yesterday, after his first child with fiancée Chantelle Houghton made her arrival in the world.
The cage fighter, who was previously married to Katie Price for 11 months, took to Twitter to confirm the news – and speak about his excitement over the arrival of the bouncing baby girl.
Alex wrote: “I'm delighted to announce the arrival of my beautiful baby daughter early this morning. Both mother and baby doing well. X”
He added: “This really is the most amazing day ever for the 3 of us. Life isn't good, it's great. I love my girls so much. Happy ecstatic Fathers Day! X”
The couple are yet to release other details, including the much-anticipated name, time of birth, or the weight of their baby girl.
Chantelle will no doubt be relieved that she has finally given birth, after recently admitting that she was “petrified” of being in labour.
Writing in her new! magazine column, the former Celebrity Big Brother star said: ''I must admit, I'm petrified. I told the midwife I don't feel mentally prepared and she said, 'I've been worried about you because every time I mention the birth, you go all bleary-eyed and quiet!'”
Poor Chantelle also revealed she’d been struggling to sleep throughout the night, as her due date grew ever closer too. We hate to say it but those sleepless nights aren’t about to stop any time soon!
The baby’s arrival comes after Alex and Chantelle went through a turbulent time in their relationship, which included a brief stint apart during which Chantelle moved back into her old flat for some “time out”.
