Just last year, Alex insisted that having two children was enough, ‘for the sake of the planet.’

Alex spoke about why she and her husband Charlie didn’t want to add to their brood at the time, and 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.’
Talking about taking just three months maternity leave following the birth of Teddy, now four, she admitted that she thought it would ‘compromise her work life’.
She said: ‘I’d made unrealistic promises before I went off to have a baby. I’d never had a child before; I had no idea. And I had this fear it would interfere, that I’d have to compromise my work life.’

Alex added that she now realises it was ‘ridiculous’ and that being a mother actually makes her ‘better at work’ due to being ‘more resilient’.
The star also discussed how she decided to take nine months of maternity leave after the birth of her second son.
During her return to The One Show in January 2020, Alex told fans on Instagram that she was feeling ‘anxious’ but ‘excited’ emotions.
In 2019, Alex discussed her second pregnancy on Guide Dogs’ podcast, I See What You’re Saying.
She said: ‘Everybody has nerves about being a mum and being a parent.
‘Pregnancy for any woman is a period of excitement, also slightly terrifying as you don’t know what to expect. Even with your second it’s like: “How am I going to do two?”
‘Mum was amazing at the beginning, when we first had Teddy, for the first three weeks –thankfully. I don’t know how we would have done it without her.’
In 2018, Alex explained that it had been difficult to conceive second child Kit, she told The Sun: ‘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?
