Chantelle Houghton has admitted that she regrets spending three weeks of her pregnancy worrying about her relationship with Alex Reid.
The reality star has said that the couple have "put their troubles behind them" and are concentrating on the upcoming arrival of their baby girl.
After weeks of rumours that the couple had split, the pair now seem to be back together.
Chantelle told new! magazine: "After the worst three weeks ever, things are a lot better between Alex and me.
"Any suggestions in the press that I know my relationship with Alex is over are completely untrue.
"For a time, my mind was focused on all the other stuff, and I feel sad that I'll never get that time back.
"I'm literally about to have the baby and I have to concentrate on that."
However, Houghton admitted that she is not able to relax in her last few days of pregnancy.
She said: "I'm so close to giving birth now and I've been in a lot of pain because the baby's legs seem to be pushing against my hip bone."
Chantelle added: "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!'
"However, my mum told me I was born within an hour, so I'm hoping my little girl takes after me and comes quickly."
