Washington, Nov 15: Chantelle Houghton has announced she and her fiance Alex Reid are expecting their first baby.
The former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner has announced she is 11 weeks pregnant and she and her fiance – the estranged husband of Katie Price – are thrilled with the news, because Chantelle had been told by doctors she would need IVF (in vitro fertilisation) to conceive.
“I’m 11 weeks gone. I don’t know exactly when the baby was conceived. I can’t even believe I’m pregnant. I went to Orlando and went on loads of rollercoasters not knowing,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“I found out four weeks ago – it’s been so hard keeping it secret … I definitely want to find out the sex, I can’t wait nine months!” she added.
Just a few months earlier, Chantelle had been informed by medical experts that she was running out of eggs and had to conceive in the next three years if she wanted to become a mother.
The 28-year-old blonde had already started having fertility treatment and was just seven days from beginning IVF when she took a test on a gut feeling and received the happy news. (ANI)
