Chantelle Houghton is enjoying the single life it seems.
The reality star has been spotted looking pained and emotional over the last couple of months following her bitter split with Alex Reid.
But the new mum was all smiles as she stepped out to attend Caudwell Children charity event The Winter Butterfly Ball at London's Embankment Gardens on Thursday night.

She said in her New! magazine column: 'Katie Price recently contacted me via my management.
'It’s so nice to talk to someone who’s been through the same thing with Alex as what I’ve been through. It’s hard for my other friends to identify with. Speaking to her has been a real comfort.
'She’s come out the other side and it gives me hope that I’ll be OK to meet another bloke one day.'
