Happy third birthday to Alex Jones's son Teddy! On Wednesday, the One Show host took to Instagram to share a rare photo of her eldest child in honour of the occasion. The snapshot, which is taken from behind, shows little Teddy as he sits on a kitchen stool in front of an array of presents and cards. Still dressed in his PJs, the youngster has already made a start on opening his gifts, including some kinetic sand and books. Alex always takes care to keep her children's faces hidden from the camera, but it’s clear from the image that Ted has inherited his parents' thick dark hair. "Happy 3rd birthday little Ted," Alex, 42, captioned the image. "Penblwydd hapus cariad. Anybody know of an app that can stop / slow time down?!"

The popular presenter continued: "As soon as I put lipstick on this morning, little Ted looked at me with his huge brown eyes and asked, 'Where are you going mummy?' It nearly killed me, but it's time to go back and I'm looking forward to going back to a job I love, but my goodness, I'll miss these two. So here we go... the juggle begins."
