The 45-year-old has been open about Annie's arrival being an unplanned but incredibly "welcome surprise", In an interview with The Mirror (opens in new tab), Alex said: "In the back of my mind, and this is a bit of a secret, I always wanted three kids but I thought, 'Oh Alex, don’t be silly, you have left it too late'"

"So Annie was the most fantastic and welcome surprise because so many friends and colleagues have been through the mill," she said.

Opening up to Closer before Annie's birth, Alex shared how lucky she and her husband felt at having children of both genders.

“We both said how amazing three boys would be,” she said. “Then when we opened the email which told us what sex the baby was, his (husband Charlie) little face was a picture. 

"We were too scared to say it, but I think we both felt the same," she added. "We both secretly thought it would be amazing if it was a girl. It’ll be really interesting to see the different dynamics.”

How old was Alex Jones when she had her last baby?

Alex Jones was 44-years-old when she gave birth to her daughter Annie. The presenter confirmed news of her pregnancy on The One Show - just days after celebrating her 44nd birthday.

Alex has always talked about being an older mother and in 2018 she released her own book about parenting, prompted by her own experiences and what she would have liked to have known before. 

"Joining the parenting club in our thirties and beyond means that we are spinning an extraordinary amount of plates, often including a career at its peak," reads the blurb. "Most of us co-parent or fly solo in the true sense of the word, relying solely on our partners and/or friends when more often than not, extended family are too far away to help on a regular basis. Our parents could look to their parents for the usual guidance and extra support, but our situation is new, modern and unique. We are winging it!

"This book isn't a guide or a parenting manual - it's more of a support group for parents who are having their children in their thirties and forties to get together, to celebrate, share experiences, laugh and find joy in what is still the biggest life changing experience any of us will ever go through. It's the book I looked for when I was pregnant, that spoke to me as a working parent and that I couldn't find so I've had a go at writing one myself."

Who is Alex Jones’ husband?

Alex Jones’ husband is insurance broker Charlie Thomson. The couple is said to have met at a party in 2011 and went on to get engaged in 2015.

Alex and Charlie tied the knot (opens in new tab) that same year in a beautiful private ceremony on New Year’s Eve in Cardiff Castle. Whilst Charlie tends to keep out of the limelight, he does often feature in his wife’s heartfelt Instagram posts.

Charlie actually comes from New Zealand originally and he was born in Auckland. But he's lived in the UK since he was 20.

According to Alex, Charlie originally had plans to move back to New Zealand. This made their future together at first seem 'tricky'.

“He always thought he’d go home, even though his parents are English," said Alex, in a previous interview on Carol Vorderman's radio show.

"Now he’s been here for 20 years but he always thought he might go back and I think that’s what made it complicated for us. I’m so close to mum and dad and I’d never want to go to the other side of the world, and I had the job I loved."

Thankfully Charlie decided to stay and settle in London with The One Show star. And he is now a proud dad to three kids.

He's been present at all three of his children's births, including his daughter's most recently. "The importance of a good birthing partner," Alex praised on her Instagram stories whilst in the birthing suite.

She later jokingly added another photo. In it, Charlie is napping on a beanbag whilst waiting for Annie to arrive. "Reminded him later of how many babies have probably been born on that beanbag!" she wrote, alongside a crying-with-laughter emoji.
