The One Show host had perviously said she and husband Charlie did not plan to have more than two children.

In an interview with HELLO! back in February 2020, Alex explained: "Charlie is adamant that for the sake of the planet, two children is enough.

"And I think I'm too old to have another child now, anyway. It happens for a lot of people and good for them, but we're just glad we have two healthy children."
