Judy Finnigan says Chloe was ‘an accident’ after she called parents’ marriage ‘not normal’ Judy Finnigan has revealed she had no idea that she was pregnant with daughter Chloe during her wedding to Richard Madeley, as she spoke about the ‘sort of accident’.
The popular presenting duo tied the knot in 1986 when their son Jack was just six months old.
The TV stars were stunned to discover Judy was expecting again so soon afterwards, joking that a ‘happy accident’ allowed all four of them to make it to the wedding.
Speaking on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast Happy Mum Happy Baby, Richard, 64, said: “The morning after the wedding day we were having breakfast in this hotel, married now, rings on fingers and all the rest of it.
And I always remember saying to Judy, we both remember this, do you feel any different?
“We had been living together for two years by then, so I said do you actually feel any different now that we have both put a ring on it?
Does it make in here you feel any different?

“And we would later discover that Judy was in fact already pregnant with Chloe so actually all four of them were at the wedding which was great,” joked the star.
Judy, 72, chimed in : “I look at Chloe as she was a sort of accident and she was conceived only a few months, when Jack was only a few months old.”
As well as her two children with Richard, Judy is also mum to Tom and Dan Hershaw from her first marriage.
During her chat with I’m A Celeb winner Giovanna, Judy spoke about how she had suffered a miscarriage at four months before falling pregnant with third son Jack.
“I went for a scan and they just showed the baby heart had stopped beating,” recalled Judi.
“That was terrible, just really awful, and I had to go into labour anyway and it was just awful.”

She told Woman’s Own: “I grew up watching my parents do everything together.
“It took me a really long time to realise that’s not normal.”
Comparing her parents bond to her relationship with James Haskell, fitness trainer Chloe added: “I’m really lucky that I found James when I did – because he was a rugby player, so I wasn’t going to come first.
“With a rugby player, it’s them and their career – and you like it or lump it.”
