Alex Jones opens up on longest morning of her life as son undergoes surgery

The One Show host Alex Jones took to her Instagram story yesterday to speak out about the “longest morning of her life” as she waited for her son to come out of his surgery.

Alex, 45, is mum to sons Teddy, four, Kit, two and nine month old daughter Annie.

The popular presenter was waiting for her son Kit to come back from his surgery when she took to her Instagram to share the long wait with her 337,000 followers.

The BBC favourite shared a picture of her son’s empty hospital bed and wrote: “Waiting for my little Kit to come back from theatre after a very routine op but feels like the longest morning of my life!”

Alex gave birth to her third child, her first daughter with husband Charlie Thompson last August and shared their choice of classic name with the world as she appeared as a guest on The One Show in September.

Alex revealed her baby daughter's name after previously teasing the "simple" yet "classic" moniker, Annie.

Alex said via video from her home while breastfeeding her baby daughter: "Yes, we have, her name is… Annie!"

She then joked: "It's feeding time at the zoo here!" as she added that her two sons Ted and Kit were eating spaghetti bolognese in the kitchen.”

The popular host returned from her maternity leave to her spot on the BBC sofa in January and revealed she was “making the most of shared parental leave”.

Taking to Instagram at the time, she posted a radiant selfie with Charlie and penned: “Making the most of shared parental leave. I may be back in work but we still have the mornings."

Alex also shared a sweet video of her husband pushing their daughter in a pram and their two young sons enjoying the family walk.

On her return to The One Show she said: “My husband Charlie is on paternity and I need to learn to let go a bit of things at home. Let him do it his way. Tricky."
