Loose Women viewers were treated to the first on-screen introduction of Chloe Madeley and James Haskell’s baby, and the adorable tot looked content as she slept through the whole segment.
In their first TV interview since welcoming little Bodhi into the world in August, Chloe and James joined panellists Charlene White, Nadia Sawalha, Carol McGiffin and Sophie Morgan to talk about all things parenting.
Fitness guru Chloe, 35, who is also the daughter of Good Morning Britain’s Richard Madeley, spoke on her apprehension during the third trimester.
She explained: "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!’"
She also said that grandfather Richard takes Bodhi for an hour every day to sit in bed while his wife, Judy Finnigan, reads the paper.
“I get an hour to just have a showerI Just that, is incredible,” Chloe gushed.
Chloe has been staying with her parents while her house is being redone, something which Judy is over the moon about.
“My mum – because I was heavily pregnant at the time – thought her birthdays and Christmases had all come at once,” she joked.
She continued: “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.”
Rugby legend James, 37, spoke on how fatherhood has essentially turned him into a “qualified midwife.”
“We had this emergency C section, so I changed the first nappy," he recalled.
He added: “I could see this midwife was on me, ready to correct me. I'd honestly sat through six hours of hypnobirthing antenatal classes – if you ever need any advice, I’m basically a qualified midwife.
“I changed this nappy and she went, ‘You know what, I'm going to give you five out of five, that is the best nappy change ever’. I’d been practising on a doll.”
Despite sleeping through the whole show, fans flooded social media with supportive messages.
“Little Bodhi Haskell is such a beautiful baby girl,” wrote one fan. Another added: "Awww cute baby!"
