BBC presenter Alex Jones has revealed she is pregnant with her first child.

The One Show star (39) married her husband Charlie Thomson in December last year.

She tweeted: "Charlie & I are very happy to confirm that we're expecting a baby in the new year. Feel so lucky that we're about to become parents."

The Welsh personality, who has also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, said in a recent interview she did not regret leaving it late to start a family.

"My mum went through the menopause early (at 43), but I don't regret leaving it late," she told the Radio Times.

"I wanted to marry someone who would be a great father. He came along when I was older and now children could happen, which is great."
