“It hasn’t been a good time and I’ve been in tears,” Eamonn said as he prepared for the announcement alongside his co-host, Ruth Langsford

“But I cried again because of these two people here,” he said as a photo of a couple appeared on the screen

“These people are called Declan and Jenny and the clue is, their last name is Holmes Declan is my oldest, he is 32 and that is Jenny his beloved wife

“And they announced that I, along with Valérie and Robin, Jenny’s mother and father, and Gabrielle, Declan’s mother, will all be grandparents”

Ruth beamed and blurted out a: “Awww, love this”, and clapped along with the rest of the crew before adding that they will be “wonderful parents”

Eamonn then joked that there was “no obligation” for them to name the baby after him and that they didn’t know the gender yet, but the baby is due in July
