CHLOE Madeley revealed her baby’s gender neutral name on Loose Women today as she introduced the one-month-old to viewers.
Richard Madeley’s fitness trainer daughter appeared on the ITV show earlier and admitted: “Everyone thinks it’s a boy’s name …
“It’s gender neutral!”
According to Babynames.com, Bodhi is “primarily a gender-neutral name of Indian origin that means Understanding Of True Nature.
It continues: “Bodhi, in Buddhism, is the understanding possessed by a Buddha regarding the true nature of things.”
Bodhi’s middle name, Georgia, is thought to have an English origin and means “farmer”.
She delivered her daughter via an emergency C-section and the star also shared a polaroid picture to discuss it.
The 35-year-old wrote shortly after the birth: “The thing I was most apprehensive about my whole pregnancy? It wasn’t the childbirth, which I was quietly certain would go to plan.
“It wasn’t the fact we were moving house at 37 weeks. It was breastfeeding, which I was absolutely certain would fall apart for me in a matter of days, if not hours, like it did for so many friends and family members of mine.

“What I learned throughout my pregnancy, and what I’ve learned since in the postnatal period, is not to take your body personally (even though your visceral reaction will likely tell you to). Don’t do it.
Don’t think that because you expect your body to do something, it will, and don’t think you should attach any kind of emotion to that whatsoever.”
She said: “After a decade long love affair of action / reaction between myself and my body respectively, I can safely say that the tables have turned. Expectations…lol.”
