How did Alex Jones meet Charlie Thomson?
The One Show presenter Alex met Charlie, an insurance broker from New Zealand, at a party in 2011.
We don’t know much else about the beginning of their relationship – but Alex has said she was pleased to meet someone from outside of the entertainment industry.
Alex Jones’s wedding
Alex and Charlie got married at Cardiff Castle, in her home country of Wales, on 31 December 2015.
After their wedding, Alex changed her surname to Alex Jones Thomson, though she is still sometimes referred to as Alex Jones professionally.
On her 1st wedding anniversary, Alex shared a beautiful throwback snap, and wrote:
“A year ago today we became husband and wife. How we wish we could do it all over again!! Thanks to our families and friends for making it the best day we could have ever imagined. Diolch.
Alex’s 1st pregnancy
On 2 September 2016, Alex announced that she and Charlie were expecting their 1st baby.
Alex’s fans, it seemed, had spotted her burgeoning baby bump and guessed the news for themselves.
“Lots and lots of you had guessed, and I was trying to breathe in,” Alex told fellow presenter Angelica Bell. “Now I can breathe out which is just lovely. I’ve had no sickness and no tiredness. I feel great.”
Alex was 39 at the time of her pregnancy, and had previously been pretty vocal about her concerns over infertility.
The star took part in a documentary all about fertility, after finding out her own mum had gone through early menopause, aged 44.
She revealed she’d been naive about getting pregnant, thinking it would be easy, and not really knowing when her body would be in its “prime”.
On 22 January 2017, Alex gave birth to a baby boy named Edward Alun Burrell Thomson. She and Charlie call him Teddy.
A few weeks after giving birth, Alex took baby Teddy out in a Maxi-Cosi car seat, looking every inch the happy new mum in a pale pink coat.
Alex and Charlie aren’t big on posting loads of pics of their little one on social media, but they have shared a few snippets, and paid tribute to their little boy on his 1st birthday…
“We can’t believe that our little boy is 1 today. What a year it’s been,” Alex wrote. “Teddy has brought more love to our lives than we thought possible.
“It’s also been the steepest of learning curves. We’re so grateful for having this tiny man so big in personality in our world. Happy birthday little Ted. Penblwydd hapus Cariad ❤️”
Baby Kit was born on 13 May 2019 at Queen Charlotte Hospital. Alex told The Sun she was a little concerned about how Teddy would handle having a new baby brother – but she needn’t have been anxious at all.
She said: “I was a bit worried, but Teddy has taken to it like a duck to water, being a big brother. He says: ‘Love you baby.'” Bless!
