EAMONN Holmes has revealed he's become a granddad after his son Declan and wife Jenny welcomed their first child.
The TV presenter, 61, announced the happy news on today's This Morning alongside his wife Ruth Langsford.
Grinning, Eamonn told viewers the baby girl is called Amelia and was born weighing 7lb 6oz.
He said: "Some things have changed since I last saw you yesterday, and that is…"
Ruth chipped in, singing: "You're a granddad."
The studio erupted into a round of applause.
The broadcaster told This Morning viewers his son and daughter-in-law were expecting back in April.
He said at the time: "Declan is my eldest boy, he's 32, and Jenny is his beloved wife.
"They have just announced that I, together with Valerie and Robin, Jenny's mum and dad, and Gabrielle, Declan's mummy, we're all going to be grandparents.
"It's very good. We're very happy."
Declan is Eamonn's son from his ex-wife Gabrielle with whom he shares three kids.
He tied the knot to Jenny, who is a doctor, in Ireland in 2018.
Eamonn revealed he got emotional when he was told the happy news.
He said: "I didn't think I would be so happy, but when they told me the news I got very emotional about it.
"I just thought, 'Me? I'm so young and vibrant.'
"What lovely news, regeneration. The old guard goes out, the new guard comes in.
"Declan is the same age that I was when I, well, your mummy, had you."
"Jenny – we wish you well.
"The baby is due in July sometime."
He also joked: "Please, no obligation to call the child Eamonn.
"We don't know if it's a boy or girl, we just want you to be healthy and happy.
"Thank you for bringing so much joy and happiness into our lives."
Ruth quipped: "I'm the wicked step-mother, so maybe I'll be the wicked step-grandmother now."
