Alex Jones, 42, revealed she has “dipped her toe” back into work today after taking maternity leave from The One Show. Fortunately, the presenter was able to bring her newborn son Kit along for the ride. Alex documented her day in a series of Instagram story snaps as she headed to resume her presenting duties at Proms in the Park 2019 in Swansea. In view of her 186,000 followers, the star shared a photo of herself on the way to the event with her baby, who she gave birth to back in May.
Alex smiled for the selfie, while Kit was pictured in the background resting in a car cot.
She added the caption: “Dipping my toe back into the work pond today!
“Me and Kit are coming for #promsinthepark.”
The TV personality then posted a picture of the stage being prepared for the concert in gloriously sunny weather.
“The stage is set for tonight,” Alex wrote across the image.
The mum-of-two, who co-hosts The One Show with Matt Baker, 41, also made a surprising announcement about working with a “new” presenting colleague.
Alex posed for a photo with fellow Welsh native and BBC Newsbeat reporter Steffan Powell.
The duo beamed for the camera, as Alex wrapped her arm around Steffan’s shoulders.
“Me and my new partner in crime @steffanpowell,” the BBC favourite captioned the post.
Just before the concert, Alex revealed her last minute hair and beauty preparations.
The brunette beauty took a mirror selfie with her makeup artist and explained: “Back in the chair with @lizbeckettmua.”
