By Kerri-Ann Roper

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."
