Alex said:  ‘When I went back to work, my clothes didn’t fit. It was really hard trying on one thing after the other and nothing looking quite the same. 

‘Your bone structure and shape changes too and no amount of dieting will fix that.’

The Welsh beauty also revealed that glamorous snaps of celebrity Mums that have snapped back into shape may not be all they seem. 

She added: ‘But in a lot of those celebrity mum photos, there’s a lot of Spanx and dark colours. Underneath we’re all looking a bit like a melted ice cream!’

Speaking about her nine month-old son, Alex added that was surprised how much love she felt for her son so early on.

She said: ‘I’m scared by how much I love Teddy. Leaving him in the morning is so hard. He has made our lives better in more ways than he will ever know.’

Alex announced Teddy’s arrival in a live telephone call to The One Show in January, after marrying her insurance broker partner Charlie Thomson in 2015.

The TV personality also discussed her experience of motherhood in an interview with The Daily Mail’s You magazine.

She said: ‘I don’t look the same as I did but I’m all right about that – life isn’t just about me any more.

‘I don’t care if I’m a bit wobbly or look more tired, because it’s all part of the fun of being a parent; it’s a badge of honour.’
