Alex Reid records personal video message to Chantelle Houghton - watch
The cage fighter recorded the message for Now magazine as part of his interview with the magazine's reporter Dan Wootton.
"Chantelle, I love you," Reid said.
"I really love [baby daughter] Dolly and I really want us to work, but things really have to change.
"I'm talking today because I love you and I love Dolly and I want it to work and there's been so many untruths said."
He added: "I feel if I don't say something, it's going to get worse and worse. Things have to change.
"You can't keep venting your anger on me in your column. It's not helping. I'm trying to work things out... every couple argues. You don't need to tell the world our problems.
"I know you love me. I hope you love me. Let's sort this out."
Houghton writes a regular column for New magazine, and is currently suing rival Now for its report on her split from Reid.
