Daily Mail reports: She spent the last half of 2012 in a public and distressing war of words with former partner Alex Reid.
But it seems that former reality star Chantelle Houghton is back on track now that it’s a new year, and is focusing all of her energies on baby daughter Dolly.
Chantelle was seen doting over her bouncing baby girl as the pair enjoyed a shopping trip to Lakeside Shopping Centre in Thurrock on Thursday.
The single mother pushed her around the Essex shopping mall before picking her up and rocking her back and forth in her arms.
Seemingly in a much more calm and happy place, Chantelle visited a local library with her seven-month-old before making her first trip to the shops since Christmas.
With her long blonde hair extensions making her instantly recognisable, the 29-year-old wore a baggy grey T-shirt over a pair of black leggings and a furry gilet for her day out.
She added one of her favourite pairs of over-the-knee leather boots and kept her make-up minimal and natural-looking.
