Rugby star James Haskell has almost come under fire from his pregnant wife Chloe Madeley when he called her a “giant manatee” in her latest bikini snap.
The 36-year-old made the joke below his wife’s Instagram photo – where she showed off her growing baby bump.
On her social media page, Chloe was spotted underwater making a peace sign for her followers.
She looked cheerful in the photo while her husband made fun of her.
In the comments, James joked: “Damn it, you go snorkeling and the first thing you see is a giant manatee mating!
“She seems to think I’m her partner. I didn’t know whether to harpoon it or feed it.”
The 34-year-old personal trainer excitedly announced last month that she and husband James are expecting their first child, a baby girl, later this year.
Chloe – the daughter of TV icons Richard Madeley and Judy Finnegan – said she first realized she wanted to start a family with James when the former rugby player was in the Australian jungle and working on the series ‘I’m A Celebrity” participated… Get Me Out of Here!
However, her path to parenthood was not easy as the couple struggled to conceive a child for over two years.
Chloe opened up about her difficult journey to motherhood in a recent interview with OK! magazine where she showed off her blossoming belly.
During the candid chat, Chloe opened up about her fertility struggles, saying it’s “really complicated.”
She said they hadn’t used birth control in “months” and were concerned early last year when she wasn’t pregnant.
“We picked up the pace in terms of attempts and that nervousness turned to utter fear. Like, ‘Wait, I don’t want that option taken away from me,'” she explained.
“I woke up in the middle of the night and it hit me like a ton of bricks. And that made me make a decision and that I really wanted to have a family,” Chloe added.
The mother-to-be revealed the couple was attending a fertility clinic and Chloe was given the all-clear by doctors.
However, she began to worry when she still wasn’t pregnant after months of trying.
“I’ve come to terms with the fact that it may have to happen that way for me,” Chloe shared as she said she and James consider IVF an option or adoption.
Chloe revealed she knows how lucky she is to have gotten pregnant with the extra support.
But she admitted it was “really sad months” when she was “scared” that becoming a mother was out of reach for her.
Chloe discovered she was pregnant with her first child two days after her dad Richard finished his stint on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.
