In the latest issue of New! magazine – Chantelle Houghton, 28, and Alex Reid, 36, talk about the glamour model’s pregnancy and divulge other revealing tidbits in the interview. Houghton – who is due in June – shares how she and her fiancé found out the sex of their baby.
She said, “We got the wrong day for the appointment and Alex was working, so I ended up going to the doctor’s on my own. I asked them to write it [the sex] down and put it in an envelope. I got home and Alex wanted to open it straight away but I didn’t want to. So we ordered a Chinese, ate that, and I still wasn’t ready.”
When they finally opened it after much deliberation, Chantelle said she was shocked as she was convinced she was having a boy.
I was so shocked and he didn’t speak for an hour. I cried. It was so shocking. I felt like I knew that little boy. When I found out it was a girl, I missed him. It took a while to sink in… we didn’t have a preference. It was just that I had a strong feeling it was a boy. I didn’t expect it.”
When asked if she will breastfeed the baby, her fiance jumped in and said, “I definitely will! 100 per cent. Breast milk has a lot of colostrum in it, which is great for athletes. I’m going to try it!’
The pair opened up on their sex life too. Chantelle said her bump is not going to stop intimacy in the bedroom.
She said, “No, not at all! Obviously, you can’t go mental. That’s the only bit that has changed! It’s a bit… nicer. I’m going to keep on going [through this pregnancy]. You’ve got to keep your man happy. If not he will go somewhere else!”
