Chloe Madeley34, was born in Manchester, before going to school in northwest London.

The youngest sibling was entirely unplanned, being conceived only “months” after her brother, Jack, was born.

Speaking on The Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast with Giovanna Fletcher, Richard revealed: “I look at Chloe as if she was a sort of accident and she was conceived only a few months … when Jack was only a few months old.”

When Jack was six months old, the pair tied the knot at a Manchester registry office, completely unaware Judy was already pregnant with Chloe.

Chloe has enjoyed a varied career so far, with roles including TV presenter, freelance journalist and model.

The fitness star has spoken out about suffering from “meltdowns, vomiting and headaches” while pregnant.

Speaking to the Sun, the star said, “I love that I’m pregnant. I really love the bump, I really love the curves, I’m really into it.

“It’s magical and I love it, but it’s f *** ing hard on your body. I’ve had more than one melt down where I’ve just sat there like hysterically cried because it’s a lot of hormones, a lot of emotion . Every day isn’t always pleasant but I love it. “

Taking to Instagram recently, the media personality displayed her growing baby bump while marking the sixth month of her pregnancy.

In the photo, Chloe donned a white crop top and matching underwear while raising her arms to show off her incredible bump, with the caption “13 weeks to go.”

She announced to fans in a social media post last month that the couple were moving back home to London.

She revealed: “We have our first marital home! Six years after moving to the midlands for the Wasps relocation, James’ subsequent Saints’ finisher ‘and a few lockdowns later I’m finally going home to my city, my friends and my family.
