Alex Jones and husband Charlie Thomson are on cloud nine after welcoming a daughter on Saturday, the third child for the couple.
The couple welcomed their first child, a son called Edward, in January 2017. Their second son, Kit, was born in May 2019.
Alex revealed the happy news on Instagram on Tuesday, posting a picture of her newborn’s tiny feet and adding her name will be shared ‘soon’.
The One Show host wrote: ‘We have some news………Our beautiful daughter came safely into the world on Saturday afternoon 21.08.21.
‘Tiny, but perfectly formed we are all beyond happy and besotted by her, especially Ted and Kit. Watching them with their brand new little sister is just the best and we can’t believe how lucky we are to have the 3 of them and to be a family of 5.
‘It still doesn’t feel real!!! Thank you to everyone at the Queen Charlotte hospital for all your support again, especially super midwife Audrey. ? Name will be incoming soon.’
Further, more intimate photos showed Alex in hospital shortly after giving birth, cradling her daughter to her chest.
The mum-of-three announced her pregnancy live on The One Show – of course – in March this year as she hosted alongside Ronan Keating.
After the Boyzone star made a quip about ‘lockdown babies’ and asked if Alex had anything she wanted to say, Alex, 44, made the big reveal.
It just seems like a good time to share some news with everybody, and the crew in the studio for the first time.
‘I mean lockdown has been anything but predictable and we’ve had some really unexpected news – baby number three is on the way.’
‘We didn’t see that one coming but we’re delighted,’ she added.
The TV star also revealed she was pregnant with Kit on The One Show in 2018 before his birth the following year.
The presenter has spoken about expanding her family in the past, previously explaining how difficult it was to conceive Kit.
‘I have to say, the first time – absolutely fine. Luckily, God, it happened,’ she told The Sun.
‘But second time, not as easy. I suppose I’m older now, but we took it for granted that it would be OK. But you don’t really know until you start trying how it’s going to go, do you?
‘The majority of couples I know have had something, not always IVF, but some problem that needs to be sorted out.’
