Alex Jones Opens Up On Tragic Miscarriage Ordeal

Alex Jones Opens Up On Tragic Miscarriage Ordeal

TV presenter Alex Jones has revealed she hosted 'The One Show' just an hour after discovering she had suffered a miscarriage.

In an interview with the The Sunday Telegraph's Stella Magazine, Alex spoke about the ordeal, which happened in 2017.

She had found out she was pregnant on a trip to visit her husband Charlie Thompson's parents in New Zealand.

Once the couple arrived back in the UK, a 14-week scan showed that Alex had suffered a symptomless miscarriage.

It turned out that the baby had stopped developing around the nine week mark.

"We learnt the baby didn't have a heartbeat. I was around 14 weeks, which is a decent amount of time.

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

"It's really odd. You're in that room looking for answers that you're never going to get.

"You're thinking: 'Have I done something wrong? What did I do differently? Was it because we flew a long way? Was I too stressed? Was I putting too much pressure on myself?"

Just an hour after learning the heartbreaking news, however, Alex was determined to be back on television presenting 'The One Show'.

She explained that she felt like going straight back to work because there was "nothing to say".

"I said, 'What else am I going to do?' It's a horrible feeling because it is so empty. There's nothing to say. It's done," she said.

Alex also spoke about the feelings she experienced as a mother after experiencing a miscarriage. The couple's first son, Teddy, was born in January 2017, and they are currently expecting their second child.

"I'm not saying it's easier or harder if you already have [a child]," Alex said. "The sense is at least you have a healthy child, but you remember how it felt at that point, you know what it's like to hold a baby and the potential is very real."
