Alex Jones from The One Show has revealed she’s going through a rough patch with her eldest son.
Taking to Instagram, the presenter said the toddler is currently in a “horrendous phase” but she’s getting herself through it with the help of a parenting podcast hosted by TV’s Fearne Cotton.
Alex, 42, shared a screenshot from her phone of Happy Place’s latest episode with child psychotherapist Philippa Perry.
She wrote alongside the snap: “We’re going through a horrendous NOOOOO phase with 2.5 year old Teddy and I found this really helpful…
The podcast chat looks at how parents should talk to their children to enable them to find their own ‘happy place’ and be their best selves as they grow up.
Alex welcomed her second child, Kit, with husband Charlie Thomson earlier this year.
She announced the birth of the tot, who arrived on May 13, with a sweet Instagram post, telling fans: “Teddy, Charlie and I are absolutely besotted by baby brother and are enjoying this special time as we get used to being a foursome and generally breathing in that lovely newborn smell!!!
“A huge thank you to the midwives at the birth centre, Queen Charlotte Hospital for everything you did for us. #nhsheroes.”
Two-and-a-half year old Teddy has been a great big brother to Kit, as Alex revealed in May that he had taken to the role “like a duck to water”.
During a live phone-in on The One Show soon after the birth, she said: “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.’
“He thinks that we’re going to call the baby Thomas after Thomas the Tank engine so breaking the news is going to be tricky.”
Last week, Alex shared a cute pic of the toddler doting on his little brother.
She obscured Kit’s expression with an apple emoji but his face can be seen turned towards his big bro.
