Alex Jones has shared the first full photograph of her beautiful baby Ted on her Instagram page! The One Show host was celebrating her 40th birthday at home surrounded by family and friends. “This is 40” wrote Alex underneath the happy photograph. Centre stage in the snap is Alex, looking stunning in a cream top and cuddling her sweet sleeping baby in her arms. Baby Ted, full name Edward Alun Burrell Thomson, was born in January and looks adorable in his tiny blue baby grow. Alex looks to be having a wonderful evening partying in the kitchen, with a birthday cake and bottles of champagne and wine on the table.

One Instagram follower wrote: “Many happy returns of the day- you look fantastic at 40”, with another complimenting her, “Happy Birthday Alex. You look much much younger than 40. Miss you on The One Show!” The presenter is currently on maternity leave from the popular BBC1 TV show, taking time at home to bond with little Ted. Alex gave birth to him 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 afterwards she posted a photo showing Ted’s tiny hand holding her finger. She wrote, "My new obsession. #soinlovewithhim".
Alex, who married New Zealand insurance broker Charlie Thomson in 2015, has been seen recently enjoying her time off The One Show, posting Instagram photos of herself taking a relaxing bath away from mummy duties and another out for a family stroll with little Ted. Alex also told her friend and make-up artist Jo Hamilton on Instagram about her plans to bring her Ted to the TV studios. "Will bring him in soon to see everybody. Miss you girls," she replied to her friend.
