Last week, Alex shared a heartwarming photograph of her and Teddy back together after her day at work. Taking to her Instagram page, she confessed she was "close to tears" as she was reunited with her baby. "Back at home after my longest week of work since Teddy arrived," she wrote. "It was great to dip my toe back in, but I'm so relieved and grateful to have the rest of the week with Ted. He's now asleep in my arms and I could cry I'm so happy!!"

Alex and Charlie welcomed Teddy - full name Edward Alan Burrell Thomson - in January. He was born at the Hammersmith and Fulham hospital weighing 7lbs 11oz. On her new arrival, she said: "It was all very straightforward. Charlie was with me and mum and dad were in the waiting room… We're in this bubble the three of us. It's just the best time." Shortly after the birth, Alex called The One Show and said on air: "We're a bit behind on the whole name thing because we didn't know if we were having a boy or a girl. We thought, 'When we see him we'll know what he looks like', but actually it's really hard."
