Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton announced their engaged last month, with the pair reportedly looking at rings last week according to the UK's Daily Mail, over two weeks after the cage fighter had popped the question live on national television.
With Houghton saying yes live on Ireland's 'The Saturday Show' - on Irish network Rte - all eyes were on Reid's still-current wife Jordan aka Katie Price as she appeared on the UK's 'This Morning' show. However, reports that, with many expecting the former glamour model to fight back with her customary verbal bite, Price surprised by many by turning towards the camera when the issue was raised and saying "congratulations by the way". Quite how sincere it was isn't really clear, and Price is still married to the 36 year-old Reid so she may well decide to dig her heels in a little longer, but throughout the interview she did make several references to her increasing maturity and this may be a sign of that.
Last week the Mail had spotted Reid and Houghton looking for rings in Tunbridge Wells, Kent after the former had proposed with no ring at the beginning of the month. Looking in Wessex Jewellery & Pawnbroke's Store, they sat down and 28 year old Houghton tried on an array of rings, though they ultimately left empty handed.
