Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid are celebrating after welcoming a baby girl on Father’s Day.

Cage fighter-turned-stage star Alex, who found fame when he wed glamour girl Katie Price, announced the news on Twitter on Sunday.

He said: “I’m delighted to announce the arrival of my beautiful baby daughter early this morning. Both mother and baby doing well.”

Later in the day Alex, 36, 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!”

So far, former Celebrity Big Brother winners Alex and Chantelle haven’t revealed what they have named their arrival, their first child together.

Last month, it was reported that there had been tension between the couple over Alex’s well-documented love of cross-dressing.

However, Chantelle, 28, recently wrote in her New! magazine column: “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.”
