Alex Jones: The One Show host enjoys a day of family fun while on maternity leave

Television presenter Alex Jones, 42, headed to the Design Museum in London today for a family-friendly day out.

The One Show host, who is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her second child in May, visited the new Designing Duggee exhibition at the popular tourist attraction.

Mother-of-two Alex, who is married to Charlie Thomson and mum to Teddy, two and Kit, five months, said her oldest son had “the best morning of his life!” at the Hey Duggee? event.

At the museum, the television star posed for a picture with the CBeebies character which she then posted online.

Wearing a red fitted jumper and black denim skirt, Alex smiled for the camera alongside Dougee in the social media snap.

The presenter wore her hair in a sleek straight style which stopped at her shoulders for the outing.

She completed her stylish look with classic make-up that enhanced her natural beauty.

Alex captioned the image, which she shared with her 188,000 Instagram followers: “This picture really does sum up my life at the moment.

“Thanks for having us Duggee. Teddy had the best morning of his life!”

Fans of The One Show host, who are looking forward to her return to the BBC One programme, took to the comments section of the picture to pay her compliments.
