Alex Jones says she was 'naïve' about starting a family later in life

Alex Jones has said she was ‘naïve’ about starting a family later in life after she previously welcomed her first child, Teddy, at the age of 39.

The One Show host, now 45, revealed during a screening of her new series, Alex Jones: Making Babies that she thought the process of conceiving would be more straightforward than it turned out to be for the star.

“I try to never regret - you are where are you, in a sense. I thought, ‘Well, there you are, we’ll try and have a baby and that will be lovely - and then a baby will arrive’. How naïve,” she told Closer magazine in a recent interview.

Back in 2016, the Welsh television presenter embarked on a BBC documentary called Fertility & Me which explored the fertility issues that many people in the UK face and even saw Alex having her Anti-Mullerian Hormone - the hormone which allows those with uteruses to produce eggs that can be fertilised during pregnancy - tested on the show.

Speaking now on having the all-important hormone check whilst on the documentary, Alex said the result ‘wasn’t fantastic’.

“They said, ‘Al, would you have your AMH tested on the show?’ Basically, that tells you how fertile you are. It came back and it was all right, but it wasn’t fantastic. I think it was 37 or 38, and [I was] just married,” she revealed.

“I would tell anybody, ‘If you’re in a relationship and you want kids, go for it as soon as you can.’ But it’s not always that straightforward, is it?”

Alex Jones and her husband are now a family of five, having welcomed their third child, a little girl in August 2021, along with their five-year-old Teddy and three-year-old Kit.
