Alex Reid has welcomed his second child after his fiancée Nikki Manashe has given birth to a baby girl.

Nikki, 36, took to Instagram to share a sweet image of herself holding the tiny hand of her new arrival with her 24,000 followers.

The blogger, who has been on a seven year long IVF journey, wrote a poem to her baby, beginning: "Welcome to the world little Miss Reid."

The poem reads: "I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun, You're part of me my little one.

"As mother with child, each day I grew, My mind has always been with thoughts of you. As you lay next to me I dim the light, I whisper, 'I will always say I love you' every night.

"I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. As mother and child our journey has just begun, My heart's yours forever my perfect little one."

Celebrity Big Brother winner Alex is yet to break his silence on the birth, but has shared the image of Nikki holding his daughter's hand on his Instagram story.

The 45 year old is already dad to nine year old daughter Dolly, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Chantelle Houghton.
