Alex Jones has opened up about her desire for children in the future, but has revealed that she is worried she may have left it too late. The One Show host has recently completed a documentary about fertility, and spoke at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists about how important it is to teach girls about fertility.
The 39-year-old said: "Safer sex is important but so is learning about fertility otherwise you end up where I am now saying: 'Oh egg freezing, I don't know about that'.
"As most girls I spent all of my teenage years, twenties, thirties, doing everything I could to avoid getting pregnant and then… a day arrives and then you go 'gosh, maybe we should have a baby'."
Alex revealed how she feels she only has five more years to have children
The presenter then talked about her own relationship with husband Charlie Thompson, revealing that she was 34-years-old when they met, and was immediately asked about their plans to have children after their beautiful wedding last year, which was featured exclusively in HELLO!.
"We met when I was 34, I had just moved to London to do the job of my dreams. We dated and messed about a bit," she said.
"The penny hadn't dropped for me, I had just met this boy, I had a lovely job although it's not more important than a family. I want to make that clear. People say 'oh, you're one of those career girls'. No, I just happen to have a career… We got married and less than two days later the first person said 'So, when are you going to have a baby?' It's a very personal question."
Alex married her husband Charlie in 2015
She went on to explain that her own mother went through the menopause at the early age of 43, and so she has "a five-year window potentially to get this done." However, she also revealed that she and her husband "haven't started trying in earnest."
The TV presenter has previously spoken about how much she would love to start a family, telling Essentials magazine: "We haven't started the process, so we don't know yet how things will go, but hopefully everything will be fine. It would be amazing to have a family."
