Alex's second pregnancy comes 21 months after the birth her son Teddy.

She had previously admitted her and her husband were trying for a second baby earlier this year, but revealed that after falling pregnant very easily the first time, they were finding it more difficult to conceive the second time around:

'I have to say, the first time – absolutely fine. Luckily, God, it happened,' she said. But second time, not as easy.'

'I suppose I'm older now, but we took it for granted that it would be okay. But you don't really know until you start trying how it's going to go, do you?'

Alex has been praised for her refreshingly candid discussions about pregnancy and motherhood in the past, opening up to fans in her book 'Winging It!'

She revealed how, although she finds motherhood 'wonderful', she found things 'difficult' in her first year of being a parent.

She was also cheered on by fans at the beginning of this year after she posted a picture of her breastfeeding her son on Instagram.

One fan wrote: A beautiful picture! Thank you for helping to normalise breastfeeding.'

Congrats Alex!!!
