MADELEYHOOD: Chloe Madeley says motherhood made her closer to mum Judy Finnigan

CHLOE Madeley says motherhood has made her closer than ever with her This Morning mum Judy Finnigan.

The former ‘Dancing on Ice’ star – who is the daughter of married presenting duo who hosted the axed Channel 4 morning show ‘Richard and Judy’ – has bonded more with her 74-year-old mother since having her two-month-old daughter Bodhi.

While appearing on ITV’s  ‘Loose Women’ on Friday, the 35-year-old television personality told the panel: “I would say since getting pregnant,  I’ve never had such a strong relationship with my Mum. I’ve always been a bit of a daddy’s girl and I feel a bit guilty saying that but it is what it is.”


Chloe detailed how she and her rugby player husband James Haskell, 37, were living back with her parents while theirs was getting remodelled.


“We’re having our house redone and we needed somewhere to live. I tentatively asked Mum and Dad, ‘How would you feel if we were to come and stay just for a week?’ My mum – because I was heavily pregnant at the time – thought her birthdays and Christmases had all come at once.

The fitness fanatic called their new lifestyle “cute” as she described how her 66-year-old father would watch the little one in the morning.
Chloe said: “It’s really cute – Dad will take her for an hour every morning upstairs just to lie in bed with my Mum while she reads the papers. I get an hour to just have a shower. Just that, is incredible.”


The ex ‘I’m A Celeb’ star revealed she was “nervous” to have children.


Chloe said: “I spent a long time not sure if I wanted children, and I think a lot of women don’t necessarily talk about it. In the third trimester. I was really nervous, like, I hope I’ve made the right decision and I kind of thought that would go away. It didn’t, and I was really nervous about it. As soon as I saw her I just fell madly in love and thought, ‘This is the best thing I’ve ever done!’”
