The reality star took to Twitter to announce her exciting news this morning (3 November), telling followers her "secret is now out".
Addressing fans, Alex posted a lengthy message to her feed, explaining how she was shocked to find out she is pregnant. She is expecting her first child with her ex-boyfriend Charles Martin.
Her message read: "I am delighted to announce that my secret is out and me and Charles are expecting a baby boy! Although it was a huge shock, and we have been through some really tough times, we are now really excited to meet our little one.
"I am really happy and excited for what the future holds... I want to say a huge thank you to my family and friends for all their support since finding out, I don't know what I'd do without you. And also want to thank everybody for the lovely messages I have already received!
"Your support is overwhelming and really appreciated!"
According to reports, Alex didn't find out she was pregnant until she was already four months into her pregnancy. At that point, she and Charles had ended their relationship, after Alex admitted to cheating on him with TOWIE star Dan Edgar in Marbella.
Viewers had watched Alex break down in tears, after confessing to her beau she had been unfaithful. She later confirmed to Reveal she had kissed Dan.
Speaking about the kiss, she told us: "It sort of just happened. Dan was chatting me up. We kissed at the club and one thing led to another really... He's obviously very handsome - which is where it went wrong."
"Afterwards I cut him out, I wouldn't speak to him," she said. "I know that what I did was wrong and I wouldn't want to disrespect Charles anymore by having him in my life – I haven't seen him since."
While Alex has suggested Charles is supporting her through her pregnancy, she hasn't confirmed if she and her ex are now back together.
Either way, it's still a super exciting time for the pair. Congrats!!
