Alex Jones shares cute snap of older son doting on baby brother

Brotherly love!

When Alex Jones was pregnant for the second time, she admitted she was concerned about how her eldest son would react to having a new sibling.

But it seems she had nothing to worry about after sharing a sweet snap of Teddy holding hands with his younger brother.

The One Show host posted the adorable moment on her Instagram Stories, showing Teddy, two, looking down at six-week-old Kit, cradling his tiny hand within his.

Alex obscured Kit’s expression with an apple emoji but his face can be seen turned towards his big bro.

The presenter previously revealed the boys are getting on well after she called The One Show to announce Kit’s birth in May.

She said: “We are now a family of four. He was born last Monday morning. We’ve had a lovely week getting used to being a family of four and introducing him to Teddy.

“I was a bit worried but Teddy has taken to it like a duck to water, being a big brother. He says: ‘Love you baby.'”

The 42-year-old added that their biggest problem was going to be breaking it to Teddy that they weren’t going to be naming his brother after Thomas the Tank Engine like he wanted!

Kit is Alex’s second baby with husband Charlie Thomson. The couple are delighted to now be a family of four after Alex once feared she’d left it too late to have children at all.

She’s currently on maternity leave from The One Show and has not yet confirmed her return date, saying only that it will be in the Autumn.

She previously admitted she went back too soon after the birth of Teddy as she feared being replaced.

He was just three-and-a-half-months-old when she returned to the sofa, while she also spent her maternity leave writing her parenting book Winging It.

“In hindsight, five-and-a-half months would have been better,” she said on Lorraine. “But you don’t know before going off on maternity.

“I think women find it hard to be able to admit that they want to go back to work, and that they are going to go back a bit earlier than everyone thinks is acceptable.”
