James Haskell lovingly calls wife Chloe Madeley a ‘star’ and shares intimate labour pics

James Haskell has called his wife Chloe Madeley “a star” after welcoming their daughter, in a sweet tribute posted online.

This week, the couple exclusively announced with OK! the news of the arrival of their first child on 10 August, as they posted a snap on Instagram of their baby girl’s hand.

James, 37, showed just how in awe he is of his wife days after their child’s birth, as he shared an intimate photo of a pregnant Chloe sat up in a hospital bed, prior to their bundle of joy arriving.

The new dad captioned: “8 days ago, when we had some semblance of a birth plan. @madeleychloe ready to be even more of a star than usual.”

James posted a second photo taken during Chloe’s labour on Instagram Stories, which showed the pair holding hands as she lay in another hospital bed, writing: “Birth throwback @madeley chloe.”

James and Chloe have been married since 2018 and have been together for eight years.

As the pair announced their baby girl’s arrival, they captioned: “Born 10/08/22 8.36am. We are delighted to welcome to the world our daughter. We are utterly besotted and beaming with pride.”

It had taken a while for James and Chloe’s daughter to get here, as Chloe’s dad presenter dad Richard Madeley revealed earlier that his granddaughter was due to arrive on 7 August.

The little one is finally here now though, to her parents’ delight.

Chloe and James opened up exclusively to OK! back in March about finding out the gender of their first child, after they announced they were expecting in February.

Chloe discovered she was having a girl in the middle of a meal with dad Richard, 66, and her mum Judy Finnigan, 74, at their family home.

She told us at the time: “I got the email through. I scrolled down and it said ‘Female’. I jumped up and my mum dropped her fork on the plate.

“I said: 'I’m having a girl!’ It was very emotional and I know my parents secretly wanted me to have a girl, and they’re seeing it as their second experience of raising me."

Expectant dad James was just as excited by the news, as he added: "That’s when I welled up and nearly cried.

“It was pretty exciting. I actually wanted a little girl — I’ve been around enough men my entire life.”
