Alex Jones, 42, is currently on maternity leave from The One Show after welcoming her second child. The presenter is now mother to two-year-old son Teddy and eight-week-old Kit with her husband of three years Charlie Thomson. Taking to Instagram earlier this afternoon, she revealed her sleep deprivation in a candid video in view of her 180,000 followers. “For once, Kit and Teddy are actually sleeping at the same time,” she said.
Sounding exhausted, Alex admitted: “I’m desperate to sleep and now I can’t!
“So, I’ve been looking at sunscreens for about half an hour.
“I think it’s what they call Sod’s law,” she sighed exasperatedly.
Meanwhile, The One Show favourite did appear to be dedicating some serious energy to sunscreen research, even reaching out to her Instagram followers for advice as she explained how her eldest son Teddy was suffering with eczema, which was being aggravated by the product.
“Can anyone recommend a good sunscreen for a child with very sensitive skin?” she asked. “Tried a few and they’re causing his eczema to flare up.
“Would ideally like to be able to use it on a tiny baby too,” she added. “Suggestions most appreciated.”

It seemed Alex received plenty of responses, as she later praised fans for their help.
“Wow!!! You lot are amazing!!! Such a quick response,” she exclaimed.
“Really interesting to hear about lots of new brands and some that are familiar and tried and tested.
“Lots of you wondering what others have recommended so I will collate responses later,” she added.
Alex gave birth to Kit shortly after she departed The One Show on maternity leave, leaving her co-host Matt Baker, 41, to present alongside a series of guest stars, including Stacey Dooley, 32, Angellica Bell, 43, and Emma Willis, 43, in her absence.

Earlier this month, The One Show’s Alex Jones revealed her gruelling sleepless night once more as she shared an insight into her routine with baby Kit.
She appeared to be having a difficult time getting the newborn off to sleep, sharing a selfie on her Instagram story as she talked motherhood.
Looking tired but happy, she could be seen resting on the pillows.
“After an all night feeding frenzy it’s back to bed for an hour,” she quipped.
Alex tied the knot with insurance broker Charlie at Cardiff Castle in 2015.
