The One Show host Alex Jones is expecting her second child with insurance broker husband Charlie Thompson.
During an emotional interview with The Telegraph‘s Stella magazine, the Wesh TV host has spoken about the heartbreaking miscarriage she suffered in 2017.
“The baby had stopped developing at about nine weeks. That was really hard. It hit us like a ton bricks.” Alex recalled.
She continued: “We learnt the baby didn’t have a heartbeat. I was around 14 weeks, which is a decent amount time.

“It’s really odd. You’re in that room looking for answers that you’re never going to get. You’re thinking, Have I done something wrong? What did I do differently? Was it because we flew a long way? Was I too stressed? Was I putting too much pressure on myself?”
Alex went on to reveal she went straight back to work on the popular BBC show after hearing the news – despite her boss telling her to take time f.
She confirmed: “I said, ‘What else am I going to do?’ It’s a horrible feeling because it is so empty. There’s nothing to say. It’s done.”‘

Last year, Alex admitted that she was having trouble getting pregnant for the second time.
She said: “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 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. Suddenly you see someone pregnant or with a newborn and you don’t really hark back to what happened before because everyone’s just delighted there’s a baby.”
