Chloe Madeley has welcomed a baby girl with James Haskell.

The 35-year-old star - who is the daughter of former 'This Morning' presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan - announced back in February that she was expecting her first child with husband James, 37, and explained on Sunday (14.08.22) that the pair were "beaming with pride" at the new arrival.

She told OK! Magazine: "We are delighted to welcome to the world our daughter. We are utterly besotted and beaming with pride!"

The former 'Dancing On Ice' contestant has been married to the former England rugby star since 2018 and was due to give birth on 7 August, with her father Richard - who has grandson Kit through his son Jack Finnigan and partner Issy - explaining that there was something "different" about seeing his daughter welcome a little girl.

He said: "She was due on the 5th of August and they've moved it to the 7th of August. She's in France at the moment, she's coming up to 34 weeks Of course I am [excited] because she is having a little girl. There's something about your daughter having a little girl, it shouldn't make a difference, but it kind of does."

The happy news for the couple comes just months after the gym instructor took to Instagram to reveal that she and her husband were expecting.

Alongside a picture of the scan photo, she wrote: "Little one."

Meanwhile, James appeared live on 'Good Morning Britain' - which Richard was co-hosting at the time - to surprise his father-in-law with the news that he was going to become a grandfather again.

James told Richard: "Chloe and I are expecting our first child, we're going to be having a little girl. You are

going to be a grandad once again!"
