How many children do the couple have?
The couple have two children together – Teddy and Kit.
Alex gave birth to her second child, a boy called Kit, on May 13, 2019. She didn’t know the gender of the child until he was born.
The 42-year-old star revealed the birth on May 20, 2019 on The One Show.
Alex was bursting with pride when she called into the BBC programme and told her former co-host Matt Baker: “We are now a family of four.”
She also posted a picture of the tot’s hands on social media, and wrote: “Little Kit Thomson arrived safely and very speedily last Monday at 2.21am weighing a healthy 7lbs 3.”
The couple welcomed their first child, baby Teddy, into the world on January 22, 2017.
As she did with Kit, Alex confirmed the news in a call to The One show saying: “Well I do have some news I have a beautiful healthy baby boy.”
Alex confirmed the name of her son in a sweet Instagram post, picturing the birth certificate.
The official paperwork showed his name to be Edward Alun Burrell Thomson.
Alex then explained that their son would be known by the moniker Teddy.

Alex Jones has shared a new picture of her newborn son Kit with her husband Charlie Thompson, confessing she was gutted that her partner has returned to work. In the caption, The One Show presenter wrote: “Paternity leave is over in a flash. We miss having Daddy at home. The last few weeks have been bliss though.” She also added a heartbroken heart emoji detailing her anguish. Fans were quick to sympathise, with one saying: “Don’t you just wish it could go on forever! Hope you are ok on your own!” Another remarked: “That first day is always a shock to the system but you WILL get through it.”
Alex Jones shares two sons with husband Charlie
The couple, who have been married since 2015 and are also parents to a little boy called Teddy, announced the arrival of their second son just two weeks ago. At the time, Alex told her Instagram followers: “And then there were 4!!! Little kit Thomson arrived safely and very speedily last Monday at 2.21am weighing a healthy 7lbs 3.” She added: “Teddy, Charlie and I are absolutely besotted by baby brother and are enjoying this special time as we get used to being a foursome and generally breathing in that lovely newborn smell!!! A huge thank you to the midwives at the birth centre, Queen Charlotte Hospital for everything you did for us. #nhsheroes.”

Meanwhile, Alex had previously spoken about her fears of becoming a mother-of-two. “Everybody has nerves about being a mum and being a parent,” she said on podcast I See What You’re Saying. “Pregnancy for any woman is a period of excitement, also slightly terrifying as you don’t know what to expect. Even with your second it’s like: ‘How am I going to do two?'” The TV star added: “Mum was amazing at the beginning, when we first had Teddy, for the first three weeks, thankfully. I don’t know how we would have done it without her.”

How Did Alex Jones & Charlie Thomson Meet? The Couple Recently Welcomed Their Second Child
TV’s Alex Jones is best known for her presenting gigs on BBC’s The One Show, Sport Relief, and her 2011 stint on the reality-competition series, Strictly Come Dancing — where she finished in a very respectable fifth place. Earlier this year, the television host welcomed her second child with husband Charlie Thomson, but what else is there to know about the couple? And how did Alex Jones and Charlie Thomson meet? Well, I’ve done some digging, and here’s everything you need to know.
According to The Sun, Jones and Thomson first met at a party in 2011, and four years later, the couple were engaged. The pair eventually tied the knot in December 2015 — ten months after first announcing their engagement, and the private wedding ceremony took place on New Year’s Eve at Cardiff Castle in Wales. Unlike his famous wife, Thomson reportedly works outside of the spotlight as an insurance broker, and is originally from New Zealand.
According to OK!, the couple welcomed their first child, Edward Alun Burrell Thomson, back in January 2017 — and the good news was first revealed during a live phone call on The One Show. As reported by the BBC, the Jones-Thomson clan grew further in May 2019 after the TV host gave birth to her second child, Kit. In a statement following Kit’s birth, the Strictly star said, “We are now a family of four. People said it was going to be busy with two and they weren’t joking. He’s doing really well. He was born last Monday morning so we’ve had a lovely week, just the four of us, getting used to being a family of four.” In the statement, Jones went on to say, “I was really worried about introducing him to Teddy but he has taken to being a big brother like a duck to water. He’s really gentle with him.”
According to Hello!, Jones gave birth to her second child at the Queen Charlotte Hospital in London, and in an Instagram post The One Show host gave thanks to the “NHS heroes” who helped deliver baby Kit. In the social media post, Jones said “Teddy, Charlie and I are absolutely besotted by baby brother and are enjoying this special time as we get used to being a foursome and generally breathing in that lovely newborn smell!!! A huge thank you to the midwives at the birth centre, Queen Charlotte Hospital for everything you did for us. #nhsheroes”
Although seemingly basking in motherhood, Jones has previously revealed the anxieties she faces as a mother of two young children. According to The Sun, the TV presenter made the revelation during an appearance on the I See What You’re Saying podcast. Speaking on the podcast, she said, “Everybody has nerves about being a mum and being a parent. Pregnancy for any woman is a period of excitement, but also slightly terrifying as you don’t know what to expect. Even with your second it’s like: ‘How am I going to do two?'”
Although a TV star, it seems that Jones has shared the same experience as many other new mums, and good for her for opening up about them.
Alex Jones has treated fans to a rare selfie with her husband, Charlie Thomson, to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
In the sweet snap Alex posted on Instagram on Tuesday (2 January), the One Show presenter and her husband of four years are pictured smiling happily at the camera while out and about on a wintry walk by the coast.
Not giving any clues about their exact location, the 42-year-old TV star wrote simply in the accompanying caption: “Happy anniversary to us.”

Happy anniversary to us.
A post shared by Alex Jones (@alexjonesthomson) on Jan 2, 2020 at 3:29pm PST
Alex had wrapped up warm for their anniversary walk, wearing a bright yellow raincoat and a khaki bobble hat with a faux fur pom pom.
The couple share two sons together, Teddy – who turns three this month – and Kit, who was born in May 2019. They married at Cardiff Castle on New Year’s Eve in 2015.
Alex is currently on maternity leave following Kit’s arrival, but announced live on air back in December that she will be returning to The One Show later this month.
We can’t wait to have you back on our screens, Alex!

The One Show presenter Alex Jones is giving fans a peek into her marriage as she prepares to get back to work.
Alex celebrated her wedding anniversary with New Zealand insurance broker Charlie Thomson over the holidays by sharing a very rare photo of the two on an outdoor adventure on January 2 to Instagram.
Alongside the loved-up photo, Alex adorably wrote: “Happy anniversary to us.”
Her One Show co-star Matt Baker shared his memory of the couple’s wedding in the comments of Alex’s photo, writing: “Happy 4th!! What a day in the castle X .. just looking at our coasters still on our bedside tables X lots of love to you both.”
Alex and Charlie tied the knot on New Year’s Eve in 2015, with Matt and stars such as Chris Evans in attendance as the happy couple exchanged vows at Cardiff Castle in Wales.
The pair later welcomed son Teddy in 2017, and his younger brother Kit followed last spring. Alex has been off telly on maternity leave since early last year, but started “dipping toe” back into work in September.
A Christmas message aired on The One Show last month announcing that Alex is set to reunite with Matt on the BBC One chatshow next week.
“It’s been really, really lovely spending lots of time with the boys. It’s been joyful,” she told viewers. “But, what I wanted to say is I’m coming back to work, back on The One Show sofa on the 6th of January straight after Christmas.”
Alex is returning to The One Show for her co-host Matt’s final episodes, before he steps down from the show next spring.
The One Show airs Mondays through Fridays at 7pm on BBC One.

Infowars host Alex Jones admits Sandy Hook killings were real, blames ‘psychosis’ for his conspiracy claims
Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones says a “form of psychosis” caused him to believe that the Sandy Hook massacre was staged. Nathan Rousseau Smith has the story. Buzz60
Alex Jones, the firebrand Infowars host and conspiracy peddler says in a sworn deposition that his false statements after the Sandy Hook killings were caused by a “psychosis.”
Jones made the claim in response to a defamation lawsuit brought by family members of the victims of the 2012 massacre.
He faces eight lawsuits over his comments about the tragedy, including conspiracy theories that the shooting, that left 27 people dead, including 20 children, was a staged event and that parents of the victims lied about the deaths.
The three-hour deposition was posted online Friday by a Texas law firm, Kaster Lynch Farrar & Ball, LLP. Huffpost, which first reported on the deposition, has posted a full transcript online.
On the InfoWars channel that he founded, Jones has repeatedly suggested the Sandy Hook massacre was a “total hoax” carried out by crisis actors on behalf of opponents of the Second Amendment.
The lawsuit charges that Jones and InfoWars have “shocked the world with malicious statements about national tragedies, including the school shootings at Sandy Hook.”
Two of the lawsuits “seek to hold Mr. Jones accountable for his vile assertions that the Sandy Hook parents were lying about what happened to their children, as well as his claims that these parents conspired with the media to fake news coverage,” the law firm says.
In the disposition, Jones says “the public doesn’t believe what they’re told anymore” because of corruption by government and the “mainstream media.”
“And I, myself, have almost had like a form of psychosis back in the past where I basically thought everything was staged, even though I’m now learning a lot of times things aren’t staged,” Jones says.
Jones also noted that the “trauma” of the media “lying so much” has caused him to distrust everything.
At one point, he said that as the story “matured he has had a chance to believe that children died” at Sandy Hook, but add there are “still real anomalies in the attempt to basically keep it blacked out that generally, when you see that in government, something is being covered up.
Jones also tried to explain his bent toward conspiracies by saying he grew up in a small town in Texas where he would “watch the police deal drugs and then conduct anti-drug programs in the school.”
“So long before these lawsuits I said that in the past I thought everything was a conspiracy and I would kind of get into that mass group-think of the communities that were out there saying that,” Jones said. “And so now I see that it’s more in the middle. All right? So that’s where I stand.”
It was not the first time that the Austin-based Jones had to explain his online persona in a legal setting.
In a court battle with his ex-wife in 2017, in which he lost custody of his children, Jones’s lawyer explained his online ranting was not real.
“He’s playing a character,” attorney Randall Wilhite said during a pretrial hearing. “He is a performance artist.”
In an odd twist, though, even during the 10-day trial, in which he lost custody of his children, Jones would tell his online audience, “I am completely real and everybody knows it.”
His wife, Kelly Jones, however, has described him as out of control, according to the Austin American-Statesman. “He’s not a stable person,” she has said, according to the Statesman. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”
Among other claims, Jones has suggested that Hillary Clinton was running a pedophile ring out of a Washington D.C., pizza restaurant and has argued that a yogurt company, in hiring refugees, has brought “migrant rapists” and tuberculosis to areas near the factories.
In 2015, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared on the InfoWars show to praise Jones, saying, “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.”
In December, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone, who has hosted a show on InfoWars, settled a $100 million lawsuit accusing him of publishing lies on the program.
The Wall Street Journal has reported exiled Chinese businessman Guo Wengui sued Stone in March, saying Stone accused him of being a ‘‘turncoat criminal’’ who violated U.S. election law. Stone now says his conduct was ‘‘irresponsible.’’
The settlement allowed Stone to avoid paying any damages if he publishes national newspaper ads apologizing for the statements and retracts the statements online, the Associated Press reported.
This is incredible. But as long as they can’t guilt you into their mind control they’ve failed. They are sociopath sand psychopaths. Leftists and globalists are there to manipulate those of us who have feelings.
So again ladies and gentlemen, Bernie Sanders, checked off the bucket list, chased like a cowardly rat into a sewer away from serious questions.
What is remarkable to me is that Jones had complete control over what happened here and how it was produced and presented to the world and I’ve got to think that to all but the most devoted Infowarriors he comes across as ridiculous, as a ludicrous parody of himself.
As for what is says about his parenting of Rex, well maybe next year he’ll take his son to the Running of the Jew in Kazakhstan.
Rex’s involvement in Infowars has grown in recent months.
From a March 30 First Reading: Alex Jones turns to his 15-year-old son to defend him from `bullying’ by David Hogg
It has been almost a year since the Alex Jones-Kelly Jones child custody trial in the Travis County courtroom of District Judge Orlinda Naranjo.
I, like other reporters, never identified the names of the Jones’ three children.
But that now seems a quaint precaution when it comes to their oldest child, their now 15-year-old son, who his father yesterday pushed into a very public place on InfoWars before his huge audience in a manner that appears to make a mockery of Naranjo’s insistence throughout the trial that Alex Jones’ day job had nothing to do with how he parents his children and was of no concern to the court.
Alex Jones seems determined to make his son a celebrity, to make Rex Jones the next Alex Jones.
It’s not hard to understand why Rex Jones, at 15, still in braces, wouldn’t want to go into the hugely lucrative and unfathomably ego-affirming family business. And, I suppose, why not blame David Hogg, who, of late, has become a more hated and demonized target of the American right than Hillary Clinton or George Soros.
I will admit that I find Hogg’s arrogance off-putting and unsettling.
But I don’t think Alex Jones thrusting his son into the spotlight is either helpful or model parenting. It is just more narcissism from a narcissist, intended to wring every drop of juice he can out of attacking Hogg while grooming his Mini-Me.
Here’s some other scenes from Alex Jones’ Hawaiian family vacation.
AJ: Alex Jones here form the Central Pacific Ocean reporting on a really exciting development…I have made the point that if we really want to take down the globalists, their Achilles’ heel is sex-trafficking …
AJ: Pizzagate was a distraction.
I”m not blaming folks. We halfway bought into it as well.
AJ: Alex Jones, reporting live on historic events from the Central Pacific Ocean.
AJ: There is literally an ocean of people who are awake and know what’s happening. There are also an ocean of people who aren’t awake but they are becoming disillusioned as they realize they have been lied to and as they realize the economy is turning around.
Next up Anthony Bourdain, who, according to Jones, was about to go MAGA when he supposedly committed suicide.

Here, he literally talks into the sunset.
Then continues under a tiki torch.
AJ: You know what, I’m going to join the liberal team. I think it’s totally reasonable.
I’m going to identify as an eighth-grade girl and I am going to make them let me on the local eighth-grade girls team in Austin and I am going to wrestle eighth-grade little girls, and if they don’t let me, I’m going to sue them.
AJ: John was here with his children, I was here with my children, we’re here in the middle of Pacific Ocean, we’re here in the newest land on Earth, last touched by God, the real Garden of Eden, and I ran into this guy, he’s a very humble guy but very well-spoken, very charismatic, very passionate, and so I wanted him, from another angle, to get into the current state right now, how we are witnessing prophecy right now, and what an amazing time we’re in …
Then this dispatch while snorkeling.
Of course, there was lao report on the disruption by Infowars of Bill Clinton’s book tour appearance at Bass Concert Hall in Austin.
AJ: I’m here on a workcation with my family in Hawaii, but I tell you, I wish I was there in Austin with you.
And then, of course, there is a report on his decision to do what many men do, and grow a beard on vacation.
Apparently Alex Jones said he wouldn’t grow a beard until the “tide has turned against the globalists,” which, he said, it now has and that is why he started growing a beard while in Hawaii, and stole a few precious minutes away from his family time to tell us about it.

When I entered, Mr. Jones was holding a printout of a story I had written. The article included his demand, in court documents, for more than $100,000 in court costs from the parents of Noah Pozner, who died at Sandy Hook.
He jabbed his finger at me. “You have a responsibility. You wrote the blueprint article everybody else picked up where they said, ‘Alex Jones is the scum of the earth . . . People need to go after Alex Jones, people need to bankrupt Alex Jones, people need to kill Alex Jones,’” he said, “‘because he sends people to these parents’ houses and he won’t stop doing it.’”
After a public outcry, Mr. Jones’s lawyer altered his demand, saying in a hearing in the Pozner case that week that he’d now accept “a dollar” in court costs. Mr. Jones claimed, wrongly, that I hadn’t reported that gesture, “something that my lawyers have never seen before.” (In court filings before a separate defamation hearing last month, Mr. Jones sought more than $200,000 in court costs from Neil Heslin, another Sandy Hook parent.)
Mr. Jones asked whether I’d seen his “Father’s Day message” to the Sandy Hook families, broadcast in 2017. He complained that his on-camera acknowledgment of long-accepted facts got little attention because he’s the target of a mainstream media plot. “I said I thought that the children died and I was sorry for their loss. And I said that I wanted to reach out to them and try to heal things,” he said. “I thought that’d be pretty newsworthy, but no newspapers reported it. Pretty amazing discipline to, all in unison, do that.”
Mr. Jones was wearing a starched, white, too-snug monogrammed shirt and one of his Rolex watches (more on that later).
He recited a rasping medley of plots by globalists, “Chi-coms,” Muslims, Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and his newest villains: social media companies whose actions are eating into his business.
“Humanity will be obsolete by 2050. This is the consensus at Google and Facebook and Twitter,” he said. “We’re going to merge with machines and become gods, but first we’ve got to reduce the world population 90 percent.” I wondered aloud what the Jones family dinner table conversation must be like.
