Alex Jones has not been getting a lot of sleep recently as her six-month-old son Teddy has got the flu. The doting mum took to Twitter to ask her fans for "help and caffeine', writing: "Fluey baby. No sleep. Deadline looming. Send help and caffeine. Thanks." Messages soon came flooding in from fellow parents, who sent their well wishes and advice on how to treat Teddy's flu symptoms.

Teddy with his dad Charlie Thomson

Alex welcomed baby Teddy with husband Charlie Thomson back in January, and the couple have been enjoying every second with their baby. During the bank holiday weekend, Alex posted a sweet photo of the two main men in her life spending some quality time together. The photo showed Teddy – full name Edward Alun Burrell Thomson – sitting up and looking at his dad, while Charlie grinned at him. The 40-year-old presenter shared the picture with fans on Instagram, writing: "This was Saturday morning when we had the best bank holiday yet ahead of us. At least next weekend is only 4 days away."

Alex is a doting mum to baby Teddy - and is set to write a parenting book for older mums

The presenter recently announced that she will even be releasing her first book, in which she will share her experiences of being an older mum. The book, titled Winging It! A Survival Guide for New Mums, will be available to buy next year, and will include stories from other parents.

She explained: "It's a collaboration between myself and other parents so that's where you come in. I would like you to share your experiences, good and bad. I'd love to hear your birth stories (yep, let's tell it as it really is) how you announced your pregnancy especially if you did it in a fun way, your breastfeeding tales. I'm keen to get dad's and partners involved too."
