Richard Madeley has revealed that his daughter Chloe hasn’t spoken all day after he introduced her to Britney Spears.
Richard, 65, was hosting Good Morning Britain on Tuesday with Ranvir Singh when he shared an anecdote.
The presenting duo were discussing the news that Britney was pregnant when Richard decided to recall his experience hanging out with the pop star.
Holding up his phone to show an old photo of him and his daughter Chloe, Richard said: “This was my daughter Chloe when she was about 10 years old, and this is when she was at the height of the Britney fandom.
He continued: “And we interviewed Britney Spears on one of our shows and obviously we had to let Chloe off the morning school.
“So she walked in and Britney Spears came on the studio floor during commercial breaks and by arrangement went up to Chloe and said, ‘Hi Chloe, nice to meet you’ … she so sweet.
Then Ranvir burst out laughing, saying, “Isn’t that really adorable?”
Richard added: “And Britney is clearly used to this kind of reaction. And now my daughter is expecting too, so there you go, circle of life!”
Britney announced her happy news via Instagram on Monday night, revealing that she took a pregnancy test after her partner Sam Asghari suggested she take a test after their trip to Maui.
The singer told her followers she was left baffled after appearing to gain weight following a trip to Maui, leading her partner to think she might be pregnant.
Britney also admitted that she was worried because she had suffered from perinatal depression in the past.

She wrote: “I lost a lot of weight to travel my Maui just to get it back… I thought ‘Geez… what happened to my stomach??? ” My husband said ‘No, you’re stupid pregnancy food!!!’ So I took a pregnancy test… and uhhhhh… I’m having a baby… 4 days later I ate a little more and I got pregnant It growing!!! If 2 of them… I might lose it… (sic).”
Britney added: “It was hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression… I have to say it was absolutely horrible… women didn’t talk about it back then… some people say that it’s dangerous for a woman to complain like that to a baby in her belly… she… but now women talk about it every day… thank Jesus, we don’t need to keep our pain private that… This time I will do yoga every day!!!
