The presenter doesn't often share photos of her parents, so it's lovely to see such a personal post from the mother-of-two. In July, Alex was finally reunited with her parents after lockdown restrictions were eased. At the time, she revealed that it was longest time she hadn't seen her parents.

There's no denying that Alex has a strong bond with her family. During a recent interview in The Telegraph's Stella Magazine, the doting mum confessed she often turns to her own mother when things get tough.

On juggling her two young kids with her television career during lockdown, Alex explained: "Doing it all, I think, is really, really hard. All I hope is that it doesn't get harder for women. Because - sometimes, some days - the pressure is pretty unbearable."

"Mum often says to me, 'You know Al, I knew what I was supposed to be in a day. I was supposed to be a mother. You're trying to be a mother in the morning and then be somebody completely professional in the afternoon.' Sometimes, that is tricky, because your mindset doesn't necessarily flip as quickly as you want it to."
