Alex was seen resting against the headboard of her bed, with the infant cradled close to her chest. Despite the late hour, the 44-year-old presenter looked the picture of happiness.

She wrote: "The night shift. Emergency workers, supermarket staff, cabbies, factory workers, lorry drivers, D.Js, fellow breastfeeders. Whatever your reasons for being awake through the night, I’m thinking of you."

Her husband Charlie made her laugh while she was in a birthing room, as he started rearranging things on the shelf before things got too much and he had a doze.

As he slept on the bed, Alex joked: "Even he got a bit bored as we waited for contractions. Reminded him later of how many babies have probably been born on that beanbag!"
