Chloe wrote: ‘Forever grateful that even though my childbirth did not go to plan, I was surrounded by compassionate, skilled, knowledgeable and experienced women from start to finish.

‘Here is my deepest, most heartfelt thank you to all the midwives out there who pull long shifts, have to make difficult decisions under pressure, have seen a hell of a lot of good and bad, and exercise compassion and reassurance every single day for those under their care.

‘Also to the obstetricians who are exactly where they need to be, exactly when they need to be there, and who manage to see the whole thing through with what seems to be complete ease.’

Chloe also shared a loving tribute to her husband James, who she described as her ‘dream’ birth partner. 

She said: ‘And James Haskell, after I nearly fired you from your post for fear you would be at another DJ gig when I went into labour, you were the DREAM birth partner. 

‘I couldn’t have wished for anyone better to hold my hand and talk me through everything from start to finish, thank you. I love you. We DO make cute babies.’

Earlier in the day, James, 37, took to Instagram where he shared an intimate hospital snap of his wife Chloe in labour, and branded the new mum ‘a star.’

The former rugby player’s photo showed Chloe sitting up and smiling, wearing a black crop top with her bare bump out and a towel protecting her modesty.

James penned alongside: ‘8 days ago, when we had some semblance of a birth plan. @madeleychloe ready to be even more of a star than usual.’

Chloe announced she was expecting her first child with a sweet Instagram post in February.

In the announcement she shared a picture of her ultrasound as she posed with her mother Judy Finnigan, 73, and held up a pink onesie.

James also appeared on GMB – alongside Chloe’s father Richard who was presenting – to make the announcement at the same time, where he joked he hopes the baby ‘has her mother’s looks’ and said to Richard he would ‘be a grandad once again’.

Chloe looked thrilled in the snap posted to her social media while Judy beamed beside her. 

In the slew of images uploaded she also shared an up close image of her ultrasound as well as a loved-up snap with former rugby union player James, 36, who she married in 2018. 

She then showed off her growing bump in a series of selfies as she posed in grey underwear and a T-shirt at 11 weeks, before changing into a white flowery body suit for a snap taken at 14 weeks.

She captioned the images: ‘Little one’, and was quickly flooded with well-wishes and congratulations from her followers.

The couple married in an intimate ceremony held at Berkshire’s All Saints Church on December 15, 2018.

The fitness guru said ‘I do’ in front of friends and family after proud father Richard drove her to the church.

The Body Blitz author was also joined by mother Judy Finnigan at the ceremony – which was blighted by rain – with guests sheltering themselves from the storm battering the country.

The new parents announced their engagement in April that year, after the sports star decided to pop the question to his girlfriend of three years.

He had got down on one knee during a romantic trip to Paris, with Chloe later admitting she was stunned by her beau’s gesture.
