Not long now! Alex Jones has shared a new photo with fans to show off her very impressive baby bump. The 39-year-old star, who is expecting her first baby with husband Charlie Thomson, posted the full-length snapshot on Instagram on Tuesday, and admitted to her followers that she is a little taken aback by the size of her tummy.

"Just caught my reflection whilst making some rice! Wow!" she wrote. "I'm shocked even though I've grown it myself. Still not fed up of bump though. I think I'll miss it when the time comes. #countdownison #nearlyreadytopop #pregnancy #hugeandproud."

Her post prompted a number of supportive comments. "You look gorgeous and glowing Alex… BE PROUD," one fan wrote, with another adding: "You look lovely. Enjoy the last few days/ weeks before the baby arrives xx."

Alex and New Zealander Charlie announced their pregnancy news on Twitter and Instagram in September. Their little one is due to arrive sometime this month – just a few weeks after the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary on New Year's Eve.

The Welsh TV presenter recently shared her excitement at becoming a first-time mum. "I can't wait until the baby arrives," she told chat show host Lorraine Kelly in November. "We just hope it doesn't come too soon as we haven't got anywhere to live yet – we are still renovating!"
