has revealed that his partner, former Celebrity Big Brother
star Chantelle Houghton, has given birth to a healthy baby girl earlier today (June 17).
"I'm delighted to announce the arrival of my beautiful baby daughter early this morning," tweeted
the 36-year-old former cage fighter. "Both mother and baby doing well..X".
28-year-old Houghton and Reid first got together 13 months ago, and have admitted to having frequent arguments
since. However, Houghton recently admitted in her column for New
magazine that things were now going much more smoothly
between the pair.
Houghton first announced her surprise pregnancy in November
, after being previously told by doctors that she could be infertile after battling bulimia during her teens. The couple have yet to reveal the baby's name.
"This really is the most amazing day ever for the 3 of us", added Reid in a further post. "Life isn't good,it's great. I love my girls so much. Happy ecstatic fathers day! X"
