She continued: ‘Tiny, but perfectly formed we are all beyond happy and besotted by her, especially Ted and Kit. 

‘Watching them with their brand new little sister is just the best and we can’t believe how lucky we are to have the 3 of them and to be a family of 5. It still doesn’t feel real!!!’

‘Thank you to everyone at the Queen Charlotte hospital for all your support again, especially super midwife Audrey’

The mother-of-three delightedly revealed that she was pregnant in March live on air while presenting The One Show.

Announcing her happy news, the TV host said: ‘I feel really nervous all of a sudden… it just seems like a good time to share some news with everybody and the crew in the studio for the first time. 

‘Lockdown has been anything but predictable, and we’ve had some really unexpected news, baby number three is on the way!’

The Welsh presenter also revealed the baby’s gender, telling co-host Ronan Keating at the time: ‘A little girl… a little girl!’

Alex went on to share the news that she was expecting another child on Instagram, where she posted a sweet black-and-white photo with her husband Charlie and their two sons Teddy and Kit. 

The family held up a board saying ‘coming soon… baby number three’ and the presenter captioned the snap with, ‘The best surprise ever,’ followed by a heart emoji.

Just last year Alex insisted that having two children was enough, ‘for the sake of the planet’.

Speaking candidly about her past pregnancies with Good Housekeeping magazine’s April 2020 issue, she also claimed that she felt she’d ‘made unrealistic promises’ by taking just three months maternity leave following the birth of her first child.

Alex spoke about why she and her husband Charlie didn’t want to add to their brood at the time.

She explained: ‘Charlie is adamant that for the sake of the planet, two children is enough. And I think I’m too old to have another child now, anyway.

‘It happens for a lot of people and good for them, but we’re just glad we have two healthy children.’

Talking about taking just three months maternity leave following the birth of Teddy, now four, she admitted that she thought it would ‘compromise her work life’.

She said: ‘I’d made unrealistic promises before I went off to have a baby. I’d never had a child before; I had no idea. And I had this fear it would interfere, that I’d have to compromise my work life.’

Alex added that she now realises it was ‘ridiculous’ and that being a mother actually makes her ‘better at work’ due to being ‘more resilient’.

The star also discussed how she decided to take nine months of maternity leave after the birth of her second son.

During her return to The One Show in January 2020, Alex told fans on Instagram that she was feeling ‘anxious’ but ‘excited’ emotions.

In 2019, Alex discussed her second pregnancy on Guide Dogs’ podcast, I See What You’re Saying.

She said: ‘Everybody has nerves about being a mum and being a parent.

‘Pregnancy for any woman is a period of excitement, also slightly terrifying as you don’t know what to expect. Even with your second it’s like: ‘How am I going to do two?’

‘Mum was amazing at the beginning, when we first had Teddy, for the first three weeks –thankfully. I don’t know how we would have done it without her.’

In 2018, Alex explained that it had been difficult to conceive second child Kit, she told The Sun: ‘I have to say, the first time – absolutely fine. Luckily, god, it happened.

‘But second time, not as easy. I suppose I’m older now, but we took it for granted that it would be OK. But you don’t really know until you start trying how it’s going to go, do you?

‘The majority of couples I know have had something, not always IVF, but some problem that needs to be sorted out. Hardly anyone’s story is straightforward, and it’s not really talked about that much.’

Alex and Charlie were married in Cardiff Castle on December 31, 2015, after four years together.

Speaking to HELLO! magazine, Alex revealed she enjoyed every second of her wedding day, she said: ‘It was spectacular.

‘Everyone says it’s the best day of your life and it just exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed every single second’.

After tying the knot in 2015, the couple welcomed their first son Teddy in January 2017.

In May 2019, Alex took to Instagram to announce the arrival of their second child, a son named Kit.
