Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid still haven’t named their baby girl, one month to the day after the reality TV star gave birth to their first child together.

The couple welcomed their bouncing baby girl to the world on Father’s Day last month (June 17), with Alex confirming the happy news on Twitter.

But since then they have truly struggled to name their daughter, with Chantelle revealing all about their attempts to find a moniker truly fitting for their bundle of joy.

“We have got a couple that we're still choosing from, but I'm so bad at making decision and I know this is for life. I wanted a strong name but now I want a cute name,” the former Celebrity Big Brother star told new! magazine.

The star also revealed that she took inspiration from the names of fellow celebs' kids, adding: “We loved the name Parker but it's a bit masculine.

“I thought it was a bit like Victoria Beckham's daughter's name Harper. I really liked Piper as well but I just don't think she looks like either of them so I've ruled them out.”

Chantelle continued: “A lot of people have asked if I'd name the baby after my mum or Alex's mum but I wouldn't do that. She's a new baby with a new life ahead and she deserves her own name.”

The daughter is the first child for both Alex and Chantelle, who got engaged in October last year and revealed their baby news in November, following a whirlwind romance.

The pregnancy came as a lovely surprise for the couple who were just about to embark on IVF treatment after being advised that Chantelle could face fertility issues.
