Chantelle Houghton Gives Birth To Baby Daughter - Alex Tweets His Delight!

Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid welcome baby girl PA

Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid have announced the arrival of their baby daughter!

Alex tweeted the couple's happy news, writing:

"I'm delighted to announce the arrival of my beautiful baby daughter early this morning. Both mother and baby doing well..X"

"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!"

Indeed - what an amazing Father's Day present for Alex!

Let's hope the proud new mummy and daddy can put their recent reported troubles behind them and enjoy life with their new little daughter.

(Obviously we are all desperate to know the name - what do you reckon - something v showbiz like Victoria Beckham's Harper, or quirky and old-fashioned like Lily Allen's Ethel?)
