The One Show’s Alex Jones has announced she is PREGNANT!

The 39-year-old was scared she couldn't have children

Alex Jones has revealed that she is pregnant with her first child.

The One Show presenter, 39, married her husband Charlie Thomson in December last year.

She tweeted: “Charlie & I are very happy to confirm that we’re expecting a baby in the new year. Feel so lucky that we’re about to become parents.”

The Welsh TV personality said in an interview recently that she did not regret leaving it late to start a family.

“My mum went through the menopause early (at 43), but I don’t regret leaving it late,” she told the Radio Times.
