Nothing to say: Alex Jones opens up about secret miscarriage heartbreak

Alex Jones has opened up about how she dealt with a tragic miscarriage in 2017

The One Show host spoke to Stella magazine about how she learned of the news,

The 42-year-old said, ''We learnt the baby didn’t have a heartbeat. I was around 14 weeks, which is a decent amount of time.''

She continued, ''The baby had stopped developing at about nine weeks. That was really hard. It hit us like a ton of bricks.''

She went on to host the show, even tough her boss told her to take some time off.

She said, ''I said, “What else am I going to do?”‘

She added, ''It’s a horrible feeling because it is so empty. There’s nothing to say. It’s done.''

Alex is mum to two-year-old son Teddy, who she has with her husband Charlie Thomson.

And she announced in December that she was pregnant again when she showed off her bump on air.

She said, ''No I haven’t been eating all the mince pies! There is a little baby, look! I am expecting another baby.''

She has spoken out before about how hard it was to conceive after Teddy.

She revealed, ''I have to say, the first time – absolutely fine. Luckily, God, it happened.''

She continued, ''But second time, not as easy. I suppose I’m older now, but we took it for granted that it would be OK. But you don’t really know until you start trying how it’s going to go, do you? The majority of couples I know have had something, not always IVF, but some problem that needs to be sorted out.''

We wish Alex all the best in her pregnancy and applaud how brave she is in opening up about her loss.
