Calling it a “movie moment”, Chloe told the magazine: “I got the email through. I scrolled down and it said ‘Female’. I jumped up and my mum dropped her fork on the plate.

“I said: ‘I’m having a girl!’ It was very emotional and I know my parents secretly wanted me to have a girl, and they’re seeing it as their second experience of raising me.”
