Katie Price's ex Alex Reid welcomes baby with fiancée Nikki Manashe after IVF journey
Alex Reid's fiancée Nikki Manashe has given birth.
The brunette beauty - who has been open about her fertility struggles - shared the happy news on her Instagram page on Wednesday with a sweet post.
She told that she is a mother to a little girl by sharing a poem about the joys of welcoming a baby.
The lyrics read: "Welcome to the world little Miss Reid 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."

Under the lovely update, fans took to the comments to send the couple and new addition well wishes.
One penned: "Amazing news! Congratulations have been waiting for your news today so incredibly happy for you."
Others joined in: "Congratulations this is so beautiful" and "Congratulations both, what a journey."
Last year, Alex and Nikki shared that they were expecting twins following several IVF treatments but tragically in December Nikki miscarried one of the babies.
MMA fighter Alex shared the devastating news on Instagram by posting a sonogram that showed their baby.
He wrote: "Please don’t comment congratulations if you haven’t read this post ..... @ivf_chasing_dreams has now announced the sad news. We lost one of the twins. I am [heartbroken].
"Today was a scary day for Nicola. Emergency call out and bleeding but thank god for the kindness of @hsfc_uk Dr Venkat who calmed a self isolating worried pregnant lady down at 5 am followed by the kind act of pure love from @ultrasound_diagnostic_centre who helped us and saw us straight away, checked the healthy little fighting baby over, made sure the bleeding wasn’t anything sinister and confirmed the baby was well with a due date I can happily say mum and baby are home resting and shielding.
"Baby Reid due July 16th. We will never forget the other baby. Who will now be a guardian angel for his/her twin #ivfjourney #ivfwarrior"
At the time Nikki opened up about the loss to MailOnline.
She said: "I haven’t planned on ever having twins - who does? But once I was pregnant with two babies I wanted them both so much. I had started planning to move to a new house in the countryside and visualised and dreamed of two babies growing up together.
"I felt like all this hard work had paid off and I had two amazing babies at the end of a very dark sad tunnel."
She continued: "I put Alex on FaceTime to hear the heartbeat because that was the good news. I didn't really speak after that. He was actually in the car because we knew the week before that one baby had a strong heartbeat and the other one had to catch up. In my head, without being negative, I had been here before."
Nikki said she later told Alex what had happened and he was "devastated".
She said it was a "surreal" moment for her as she and Alex dealt with the loss of one of their babies.
