Alex Jones has admitted that under her clothes she ‘looks like melted ice cream’ since giving birth.
The One Show presenter and her husband Charlie Thomson welcomed their first child, a son named Edward, in January this year.

She said: ‘Your bone structure and shape changes too and no amount of dieting will fix that.’
After giving birth in January Alex took three months off before returning to the BBC One evening shoe alongside co-host Matt Baker.
Posting a selfie of the tot asleep in her arms, she wrote: ‘Back at home after my longest week of work since Teddy arrived.
‘It was great to dip my toe back in, but I’m so relieved and grateful to have the rest of the week with Ted.
‘He’s now asleep in my arms and I could cry I’m so happy!!’
The 40-year-old’s candid body comments come at a time when many social media snaps can make some feel insecure about their post-baby bodies, comparing themselves to celebrities who appear to snap back into shape.

But the first-time mum wanted to remind new mums that it’s not all what it seems: ‘In a lot of those photos there’s a lot of Spanx and dark colours, underneath we’re all looking a bit like melted ice cream.’
The post-baby weight struggle aside, Alex has never been shy with her delight at becoming a mum at the age of 39.

And the TV presenter opened up about her fertility worries in a documentary in September 2016.
‘I think I was, like many people, quite naive. Of course you know that age impacts your fertility, but I think you don’t really realise to what extent until you start looking into it.’
Alex married her stock broker husband Charlie Thomson, from New Zealand, at Cardiff Castle on New Year’s Eve 2015 after a long-term romance.
