Chloe Sims is one of the ITVBe series’ top stars, but she has taken steps to keep her only child out of the limelight as much as possible
Chloe Sims has declared that her daughter Madison is “her best achievement in life”.
The 39-year-old TOWIE star, who has been on the show since 2011, was answering fans’ questions on Instagram when she made the adorable declaration.
Along with the proud statement she shared a never seen before picture of her and the 16-year-old in matching personalised baby pink pyjamas.
Chloe joined The Only Way Is Essex in 2011 alongside her cousins Joey and Frankie Essex.
Her brother Charlie was also on the show, as the boyfriend of Ferne McCann.
While they are all long gone, she has continued to be a main character, and has brought her sisters Demi, 22, and Frankie, 24, on to the show too.

Last December, Madison made her official TOWIE debut as part of the show’s Christmas special.
Despite being a regular on our TV screens for a decade, Chloe has strived to keep Maddie out of the limelight, although she has never hidden being a mum or the parenting struggles she has faced.
Chloe previously revealed that Madison “has ADHD and a little bit of autism”, and although she is no longer with her dad Matthew, they have remained great pals so they can efficiently co-parent her.
Shedding light on why they went their separate ways, Chloe said in a past interview with New! magazine: “I was with Maddie’s dad, Matthew, for seven years, but we ended up like brother and sister and that isn’t what I want.
“I’ve only ever been in love once and that wasn’t with Madison’s dad. It was with the most amazing man I ever met – he was so funny with perfect looks. I really fancied him.
“She [Madison] has a good relationship with her dad. I’m very close to her dad’s parents. She is surrounded by people who love her.”
Speaking in her autobiography The Only Way is Up- My Story, Chloe shared her struggles of raising Maddie as a single parent as she tried to make ends meet in a string of jobs she despised.
Chloe’s special bond with her daughter is all the more poignant as the star was abandoned by her own mother at the age of just three.
She previously said: “I have so few memories of mum that I can barely even remember her face.
“I’ll never know why she left and we’ve not seen her since. What sort of woman just walks out and leaves her child?
“I don’t think what happened that day will ever sink in. Why mum left me, I’ll never know. As far as I’m concerned I will never meet her.”
