Alex Reid would love his daughter to take up cage fighting
Alex Reid would "love" it if his daughter were to take up cage fighting.
The retired mixed martial artist and kickboxer - who was married to Katie Price from February 2010 to January 2011 - has confessed he's keen to train his three-year-old daughter Dolly from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Chantelle Houghton once she's older.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'd love that. Absolutely. It's a good way for her to empower herself and to develop her mind - it's like mental chess, continually having to overcome problems.
"It would teach her to be strong, to be a good human being, community, respect and I'd like that because she could look after herself and be like her dad."
The 39-year-old star - who is launching his own fitness retreat in Marbella, Spain - also admitted he'd be more than supportive if she decided to follow in his footsteps by pursuing a career in the sport.
He added: "Absolutely, yeah, if that's what she wanted I'd love that."
Meanwhile, Alex is hoping to help customers achieve their weight-loss goals with his unique Roll & Flow exercise regime and juice diet.
