Nobody ever expected Chantelle Houghton to drape herself in shapeless tunics and stretchy leggings during her pregnancy.

But the glamorous reality star took maternity chic to a whole new level today at the launch of her new fake eyelashes line.

The 28-year-old wore a dazzling gold strapless gown to the event in Soho, central London, with a daring slit that showed off her legs.

The mother-to-be's dress was embellished with sequins and trimmed in crystals.

The low neckline put Chantelle's pregnancy cleavage on prominent display.

She proudly cradled her bump as she posed for photographers at the Fake It! launch.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star kept the glamour stakes high with cascading blonde curls and heavy eye make-up to draw attention to her fluttering lashes.

The range of Fake It! lashes includes 12 different styles, including Mystique, Siren, Raven and Starlet and a duo 'day and night' pack.

Chantelle is just three months into her pregnancy but already showing a prominent bump.

She proudly showed off her bump during an underwear shoot with new! magazine this week.

Miss Houghton told the magazine that doesn't care how much weight she gains during her pregnancy.

Chantelle announced her pregnancy last month, just five weeks after Reid, who was married to Katie Price, proposed to her on Irish TV.

And speaking to the magazine, Chantelle, who has battled with her body weight and had breast implants, said being pregnant has helped her get over her body issues.

She said: 'I don’t care how fat I get. I’ll get as fat as a house as long as everything’s OK.

'I’m not worrying about losing the weight afterwards. I’ll just do it gradually. I’m in no rush to snap back into shape. I’m not putting any pressure on myself. And Alex will help me.'

Chantelle, who was married to singer Samuel Preston after they met in the Big Brother house in 2006, said her pregnancy is a miracle after she was told by doctors that in-vitro fertilisation was her only hope of getting pregnant.

She said: 'What’s the saying? Where there’s a sperm, there’s a way.

'I only release an egg three times a year, so the chances of me actually getting pregnant naturally were one per cent – slim to none. I think maybe it happened because we weren’t just having sex to get pregnant any more.'

But while she is embracing her pregnancy, she said it will be weird not being able to celebrate Christmas this year with alcohol.

She said: 'I love Christmas, and not being able to drink will be strange. I can’t wait to have a drink, but I’m all right with it.

'I’m going to get something so special at the end of all this that a glass of wine or going out getting smashed means nothing.'
Excited much? Chantelle and her fiancé Alex Reid couldn't stop smiling as they attended a book launch party last week
