The One Show presenter Alex Jones has delighted her 146,000 Instagram followers with a rare picture of her two-year-old son Teddy.

The 42-year-old, who is currently expecting her second baby, shared a super-sweet snap of Teddy over the weekend, ahead of the Wales vs Ireland rugby match on Saturday.

As a proud Welsh woman herself, it's clear that Alex is hoping her son will follow in her footsteps by supporting her national rugby team, as she'd decked him out in an adorable Wales sweater.

In the picture, Teddy - whose full name is Edward Alun Burrell Thomson - can be seen in the sports jumper emblazoned with his name, with an orange sippy cup in his hand.

In the caption of the photo, Alex wrote, 'We’re ready! C’mon bois! Pob lwc i Gymru. @welshrugbyunion ❤️' - the latter sentence translating as 'Good luck Wales'.

Alex's fans loved the photo of Teddy, with one commenting, 'Aaah cuteness personified!! 💕💕', as another wrote, 'Ohhh bless him , what a handsome little boy.'

The post came just a few days before Alex celebrated her 42nd birthday on 18th March, with many of her followers also rushing to wish her a happy birthday.

The One Show host very rarely posts photos of her son, instead opting to share images of her work and charity projects instead. However, she does sometimes post pictures of her husband Charlie.

Her family are of course preparing to welcome another new arrival into the family soon, with their second baby thought to be due in the summer.

After giving birth to Teddy, Alex admitted that she battled with "unexpected" feelings of loneliness, especially after everyone else had returned to their normal lives.

In an Instagram post, she said, 'Loneliness is one of the more unexpected feelings that can accompany motherhood, especially in the early days.

'I know I felt it back in the first stages with Teddy when his dad had gone back to work, mum had gone back to wales and my friends were busy getting on with their own lives whilst I was too scared to leave the house with a newborn."

'It gets better of course, and with confidence comes the ability to socialise with other mums.'
