The 41-year-old TV presenter beamed as she told the audience she was giving her 21-month-old son Teddy a sibling.
Alex was congratulated by her co-host Matt Baker and hundreds of viewers, who inundated the show’s social media handles with their well wishes.
Holding her stomach, the Welsh TV star explained: “Now I’ve not been on the mince pies! There is a little baby – look”
Alex, who is married to insurance broker Charlie Tompson, has made no secret of her desire to have a second child and earlier this year told The Sun it had been tough trying to conceive again.
She said: “I have to say, the first time – absolutely fine. Luckily, God, it happened.
“But second time, not as easy. I suppose I’m older now, but we took it for granted that it would be OK. But you don’t really know until you start trying how it’s going to go, do you?
“The majority of couples I know have had something, not always IVF, but some problem that needs to be sorted out.
Hardly anyone’s story is straightforward, and it’s not really talked about that much.
“Suddenly you see someone pregnant or with a newborn and you don’t really hark back to what happened before because everyone’s just delighted there’s a baby.”
In 2016 Alex made a documentary exploring conception, Fertility & Me, and discovered that her mother had gone through the menopause at 43, so she was more than aware of the potential issues around starting a family relatively late.
She added: “In an ideal world, Charlie and I would have met a lot sooner, but we didn’t. I always knew I wanted a family, but I still felt really young.
“I thought I was bulletproof, and then you realise if you want a family you do need to get on with it. But if you don’t meet the right person then it’s very difficult.”
