Pregnant Alex Jones shares excitement at becoming a mother: 'I can't wait for the baby to arrive'

by Sharnaz Shahid

She's due to give birth to her first child within the next few months. And before the impending arrival, Alex Jones has shared her excitement about becoming a first-time mother.

"I can't wait until the baby arrives," she told chat show host Lorraine on Friday morning, before adding: "We just hope it doesn’t come too soon as we haven't got anywhere to live yet! We're still renovating."

When talking about sleepless nights as she prepares to adjust to a new lifestyle, Alex remarked: "Everybody says you’re not going to sleep ever again and my husband keeps asking, 'Al, do you think that’s right?'"

 Alex Jones has talked about her excitement at becoming a first-time mother

The One Show host, 39, and her husband Charlie Thomson announced their pregnancy news on Twitter in September. They are expecting their little one to arrive shortly after their first wedding anniversary - which is at the end of the year.

"Charlie and I are very happy to confirm that we're expecting a little baby in the New Year," wrote Alex. "Absolutely delighted and feel very lucky that we're about to become parents. #andbreatheout #newbabyalert."

Alex's baby news came just before she revealed her fears that she may not be able to get pregnant during an appearance on This Morning. "My mum went through the menopause at 44 and that's six years older than me. I wasn't pregnant when I filmed the documentary. I was 38 and it was terrifying. I was naive. I knew age impacts your fertility but I didn't realise to what extent."

"Mum and I never talked about it, it never came up," she continued. "I always wanted a family. Mum never put pressure on me or my sister to have kids. She probably thought I didn't need to know it."
