Chloe Madeley has revealed that she’s not yet sure if she ever wants children with long-term boyfriend, James Haskell.
While talking to the Loose Women panellists, Anna Richardson asked Chloe, daughter of TV legends Richard and Judy, about whether or not she wanted to have children with her partner, James, as she’s previously spoken about fertility and possibly freezing her eggs in the past.
Chloe replied: ‘I’m 30 now and I really don’t know if I want kids.
‘And I think as a woman, being a 30-year-old woman saying that is quite a big deal to some people.’
Chloe explained that the reason she’s not ruled out freezing her eggs is because it’ll keep her options open, should she change her mind in the future.
‘I think a lot of people, my mother [Judy Finnigan] included, turn around and say, “What if when you decide you do, it’s too late?”
‘So I’m definitely considering freezing my eggs, just in case, just to hedge my bets’, she added.
However, one huge factor of the decision is how much it’ll cost to go through with the procedure.
Chloe revealed it’s ‘a lot of money’ – in fact she said it’s ‘tens of thousands’ her and James would have to save in order to do it.
Weighing in on the discussion of the couple’s future, Nadia Sawalha asked James how he felt about Chloe saying she’s ‘not sure’ about children, because the decision would heavily affect him too. But it seems the pair are both very much on the same page.
‘Well I guess it’s the same answer. I’d probably rather have a Lamborghini than a kid at the moment’ he replied.

Chloe confirmed that the couple have been together for the last three-and-a-half years, so when probed about whether or not marriage is on the cards for the them, James was quick to assure the panel that tying the knot will happen, possibly even sooner rather than later.
‘I love Chloe, I’d love to get married to her,’ he said, ‘100%. 2018 could be the year.’
