Speaking as she called in to The One Show to speak to co-host Matt Baker, Alex 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."

And Alex says her eldest son is already the best big brother Kit could ask for, although he's not convinced on his sibling's moniker just yet.

Little kit Thomson arrived safely and very speedily last Monday at 2.21am weighing a healthy 7lbs 3.

She added: "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.”

The Shop Well For Less presenter also shared the news on social media, where she posted a picture of the tot's hands.
