The curves: Chantelle Houghton shows how much she has grown during her pregnancy with her first child
Pregnant Chantelle Houghton was looking bigger than ever as she and Alex Reid stepped out to buy some new things for their unborn child.
The glamour model looked radiant as she showed off her bump and walked round Mamas and Papas in London yesterday evening.
The 28-year-old was seen looking at baby clothes in the popular store and even picked up a few items which would suggest that she already knows if she is expecting a boy or a girl.
Chantelle was glowing as she strolled through the store and her proud fiancé was never far away from her.
She wore a tight dark grey T-shirt that emphasised just how much she had grown since announcing her pregnancy and it also showed how much bigger her already ample chest had increased.
The former Big Brother star also wore a pair of black leggings with brown snake skin boots and a grey jacket.

Alex, 36, was clearly enjoying the experience and build up to fatherhood and was smiling as he browsed the various prams on sale.
The cage fighter, who is used to wrestling men into submission, got to grips with the pushchairs and made sure he tested them out before he would make a purchase.
Chantelle showed signs of strain from the pregnancy and was holding her lower back before joining Alex while he inspected the prams.

All the hard work of looking for the perfect pram was taking its toll on the 6ft mixed martial artist and at one point he had to remove his cardigan because he was getting too hot.
After several minutes spent pushing, pulling and shunting, the couple decided not to buy any of the prams but they had a good time together joking around and left in high spirits.
Their celebrity offspring is due in the spring and may already be signed up to be the star in its own reality show.

According to the Daily Star they are reportedly set to be followed by cameras as they prepare to welcome the tot into the world.
TV bosses are hopeful a series featuring the pair will be as successful as reality show What Katie Did Next, which followed the lives of model Katie Price who was then married to Alex.
Earlier this year, doctors had told Houghton, 28, that she was running out of eggs and had to conceive in the next three years if she wanted to become a mother.

She announced her pregnancy last month, just five weeks after Reid proposed on Irish TV.
The couple, who have been dating for eight months, had been planning to start a course of IVF treatment before their 'miracle' pregnancy.
Houghton said last month: 'I'm 11 weeks gone. I don't know exactly when the baby was conceived. I can't even believe I'm pregnant.

'We were a week away from starting IVF. The thought of conceiving naturally had gone out of my mind completely - I didn't even think it was possible. I had my fertility injections in the fridge.'
The former Celebrity Big Brother winner confessed she had no idea she was pregnant and had gone on roller coasters during a trip to Orlando.
In a recent interview with new! magazine, Houghton said: 'Everyone is waiting on me hand and foot. It's brilliant!

'Alex is so supportive. He won't let me carry anything heavy and he's always asking if I want anything.'
The couple met at the Fate Awards in Belfast last April, just a few weeks after Houghton's high-profile split from TV presenter Rav Wilding.
She was previously married to singer Samuel Preston after they met in the Big Brother house in 2006.
Cage-fighter Reid separated from Price in January after only a year of marriage. Their divorce is still pending.
