Richard Madeley almost leaked daughter Chloe’s baby news weeks ago in major slip-up

Richard Madeley has admitted that he almost accidentally revealed his daughter Chloe’s exciting pregnancy weeks before she and her husband James Haskell shared it themselves.

Chloe, 34, and James, 36, announced on social media yesterday thatthey’re expecting their first child together.

The soon-to-be mum shared a series of snaps on Instagram, including one of her with her TV presenter mother Judy Finnigan who was holding up a baby scan photo while Chloe showed off an adorable pink onesie.

James was also a guest on yesterday’s Good Morning Britain where he shared the news that they're expecting a little girl.

The soon-to-be father gushed: “Chloe and I are so excited to announce we are expecting our first child!

"From the moment I saw her and heard her little heartbeat I fell in love! Let's hope she looks like her Mum."

James added: "I've seen Richard with his other grandson Kit and he's the best grandfather in the world so I'm very, very happy."

A day on from their announcement, doting grandfather Richard, 65, admitted that he nearly ruined the surprise earlier on in Chloe’s pregnancy.

Thanking fans for their congratulations, Richard said on today’s Good Morning Britain: “Before we go on, can I just say a huge thank you to all of you who sent such really lovely messages yesterday, after we announced the impending birth of my… fifth, fourth is it? Fourth grandchild, a daughter.”

“James Haskell, Chloe’s husband was here and he announced it. You all flooded in with just lovely comments,” he went on.

Revealing how he almost gave their news away, Richard explained: “Well I nearly gave it away. When she was about two and a half months pregnant, she was doing a podcast at home, she’d come home for a couple of days.

"She was doing a podcast, and I didn’t know, and I walked in, and she said, 'Dad, I’m just doing something here,' and I didn’t know we were live. I said, 'Oh, is it your hormones?'."

Luckily no one appeared to cotton on to his faux pas, and Chloe and James were able to reveal the surprise themselves.

At the beginning of the year, Chloe insisted that she and James weren’t actively thinking about having children just yet.

Shetold OK! at the time: “We’re not not trying, but we’re also not trying. There is absolutely no pressure, but we’re also not doing everything we can to stay safe. Who knows what the next couple of years will bring.”

“If it happened it would be a lovely surprise. I’ve watched that happen to my brothers and I think they’re very lucky, because it doesn’t happen for everyone and it may not happen for me. We’ll see what happens,” Chloe went on.
