Alex Reid's Giraffe Encounter

Alex Reid almost had his "head caved in" by a giraffe.

The cage fighter - who is stepfather to wife Katie Price's three children, Harvey, eight, Junior, five, and three-year-old Princess Tiaamii - enjoyed a day out at London zoo with his family recently, but narrowly escaped serious injury after one of the giant African animals attempted to kick him.

He said: "I had a day off recently and Katie, me and the kids went to London Zoo. It wasn't exactly relaxing, as everyone wanted to visit different animals, get food, different ice creams. but it was great fun!

"The best bit was feeding the giraffes, although I leant over too far into the enclosure at one point and one of the giraffes went to kick me. Their keeper said it could have killed me, as their kicks can make your head cave in!"

As well as enjoying a day out with his family, the 35-year-old star is making plans to move house and is most looking forward to designing his own gym for the property.

Alex added in his column for Star magazine: "We are still living in our old house, and starting work on the new one before we move in. I want to build a gym in there. I have a gym at the minute, but I want this new one to be really state of the art - I can't wait!"
