People Divided After James Haskell Makes 'Cow' Remark About Pregnant Chloe Madeley

People Divided After James Haskell Makes 'Cow' Remark About Pregnant Chloe Madeley

Yikes. What do you think?

Social media users are divided after James Haskell called his pregnant wife, Chloe Madeley, a 'huge sea cow' on Instagram this week.

The couple, who announced last month that they're expecting their first child later this year, were taking part in some underwater activities on Wednesday, when James snapped a photo of Chloe posing in the sea.

"Bloody hell you go snorkelling and the first thing you see is a huge sea cow doing a mating display! 😂😂 She appears to think I’m her partner. I didn’t know whether to harpoon it or feed it," he captioned the snap.

And it's fair to say followers were divided over the comments, with one person writing: "You are going on the naughty step I reckon."

While another said: "I know this is meant as a joke but bloody hell, how insensitive to call a pregnant woman who’s growing your child a huge sea cow."

And a third added: "Even if it's a joke that's not nice."

Meanwhile, others found the funny side, with one commenting: "Best sleep with one eye open henceforth fella!"

While another added: "You're a brave man 😮😮."

And a third wrote: "You're pushing your luck here mate 😂."

Tyla has reached out to James' reps for comment.

Recently, Chloe, 34, has opened up about her and James' journey to becoming pregnant, explaining she became worried after months of trying.

She told OK!: "We picked up the pace in terms of trying and that nervousness turned into utter fear. Like, ‘Hang on, I don’t want this option taken away from me.

“I woke up in the middle of the night and it hit me like a ton of bricks. And that pushed me into making a decision and that I absolutely wanted to have a family."

Speaking about the possibility of IVF and adoption, she added: “I was getting to grips with the fact it might have to happen like that for me."

Congrats to James and Chloe! (
