Alex Jones has been praised by fans after sharing a photo of herself on Instagram breastfeeding her baby son.
The One Show presenter welcomed her first child – Edward, or baby Teddy as he is known – with her husband Charlie Thompson almost a year ago.
With less than a month to go before Teddy’s first birthday, the TV presenter has shared a black-and-white shot of herself breastfeeding her son, while Charlie looks on lovingly.
The Welsh broadcaster posted the photo on her Instagram profile with the following caption: ‘2017 you were the best yet. Happy new year to all our friends. Blwyddyn newydd dda bawb. Here’s to a happy and healthy 2018 xxx’

One fan wrote, ‘Lovely photo. It’s sad that we live in a society where we even need to applaud posts like this and that it isn’t just the norm.

I’m editing the final draft and it’s really bloody honest…I’m scared!’
