In her new! magazine column, Chantelle Houghton said: "I popped into Selfridges last week and bought a couple of tops and some make-up because I want to look nice for when people come to see the baby.

"I actually put a full face of make-up on before I went to the hospital to give birth — I had to have my armour on so that I was ready for battle!"

Chantelle Houghton also said: "I'm so happy and excited my baby is finally here! She's so beautiful! In the days leading up to the birth, I had been waking up at 5.30am worrying about it — I was so frightened.

"I had a hospital appointment last Tuesday and they told me that her head was engaged. At that point, the doctor actually decided against giving me an internal examination because she didn't want me to freak out if she had to tell me that my cervix was opening!"

We're glad to hear everything's worked out well for Chantelle.  Bless.
