Bookies think Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton will name new baby Alexander or Alex

by Lisa McGarry

 Following the happy news that Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid are expecting a baby, Paddy Power has opened betting on the name of the new arrival.


The boy or girl is favourite to follow its father in name terms, with Alexander or Alex at 5/1, with Chantelle being an option at 10/1.


Alex’s Big Brother nickname, Rocky, is a 16/1 shot. But you have to go a long way down the book to find the odds for names of former lovers to appear. Katie is 50/1 and Chantelle’s ex Preston at 500/1.


Paddy Power from Paddy Power said: “Congratulations to the happy couple and we look forward to seeing which of the names below will make the grade.”
