Chantelle Houghton wore full make-up to give birth

Chantelle Houghton has revealed that she is "happy and excited" after giving birth to her daughter on Sunday.

This is the first child for Chantelle and her partner Alex Reid.

Houghton wrote in her new! magazine column: "I'm so happy and excited my baby is finally here!

"She's so beautiful! In the days leading up to the birth, I had been waking up at 5.30am worrying about it - I was so frightened."

She added: "I had a hospital appointment last Tuesday and they told me that her head was engaged.

"At that point, the doctor actually decided against giving me an internal examination because she didn't want me to freak out if she had to tell me that my cervix was opening!"

Chantelle admitted she was so worried about the birth that she wanted to stay pregnant.

She said: "It's funny - a month ago, I couldn't wait to have the baby, as I was so fed up of being pregnant but, as my due date got nearer, I decided I was actually happy for her to stay in there for a bit longer!"

However, Chantelle is still planning on keeping up appearances.

She said: "I popped into Selfridges last week and bought a couple of tops and some make-up because I want to look nice for when people come to see the baby.

"I actually put a full face of make-up on before I went to the hospital to give birth - I had to have my armour on so that I was ready for battle!"
