James Haskell has said he is "appalled" by fellow new dads who still don't "help" by changing their baby's nappies in 2023.

The former sportsman, 37, welcomed his first child, a daughter called Bodhi, with wife Chloe Madeley 35, last year.

Speaking on the Channel 4 show Steph's Packed Lunch, the couple were asked how they were finding parenthood so far.

The ex-rugby star said: "I think I'm always slightly appalled by men in 2023 who don't change a nappy, don't get up, don't help.

"I'm not a saint but I think you've got to help as much as you can."

Haskell added: "I've loved it because Chloe has been so good at it, and so committed and so organised."

It comes after Madeley told OK! magazine earlier this month that their friends Mike and Zara Tindall were the first to meet their newborn.

She said that Princess Anne's daughter had offered to change Bodhi's nappy to give her a "break".

In August, Haskell announced on Instagram that his other half – who is the daughter of Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan – had given birth to a little girl.

He wrote: "Welcome to the world my beautiful daughter Bodhi Rae Georgia Haskell – yes I cried like a baby when she came out.

"I knew love but not like this! I finally understand what people have been banging on about when they talk about having children.

"To my mega wife @madeleychloe you have given me the best gift anyone could ever ask for. You were a proper machine during this period and are a natural-born mum."

The couple married in 2018 after reportedly meeting on social media back in 2014.
