Maybe Alex isn't so tough after all...


Alex Reid‘s mum has revealed she shared a bed with her son until he was a teenager.

Carol, who describes Alex as the ‘baby of the family’, says we shouldn’t be fooled by the cage fighter’s tough exterior.

‘I suppose you could call him a bit of a mummy’s boy,’ says Carol, 70.

‘He slept in my bed until he was 13.’

Alex, who was heartbroken after his split from Katie Price, 33, in January, had quite a liberal upbringing.

‘My husband Bob and I weren’t strict with our 6 children, and Alex never had to go to bed until I did,’ Carol tells Best magazine.

‘He comes across as a hard case but he’s tough on the outside and squidgy on the inside.’
