Alex called up co-hosts Matt Baker and Angela Scanlon, revealing that she’d had a little boy on Saturday 21 January, weighing in at 7lb 11.
She said: ‘I do have some news – our beautiful, healthy little baby boy was born!
‘We’re absolutely delighted – we’re completely in love with him. It’s the most wonderful feeling.’
When Matt asked if they’d decided on a name, Alex replied: ‘We’re a bit behind on the whole names thing,’ before reassuring viewers that she’d let them know as soon as she’d picked one.
She even went as far as to invite them to send in their suggestions.
Speaking about the ‘lovely’ birth, she continued: ‘It was all very straightforward, Charlie was with me, Mum and Dad were in the waiting room – because we didn’t know whether it was a boy or a girl. So that was a lovely bit of news.
