Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid, 36, have had a turbulent few months of their relationship.

But the Essex lass recently revealed that things were back on track with the pair - and that they were happier than ever.

She wrote in her new! magazine column: "After the worst three weeks ever, things are a lot better between Alex and me.

"Any suggestions 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."

Chantelle left the home they share together in Essex, but returned after two days.

She said of the wobble: "To confirm I did take time out from alex and stay at my flat last week after an almighty row. Last couple days been trying to sort things."

The two are yet to announce a name for the little celebrity newcomer. Congrats Alex and Chantelle!
