When did Eamonn become a grandfather?
Eamonn became a grandfather in July last year after Declan’s wife Jenny gave birth to Emilia Elizabeth Holmes.
On July 20, 2021, he announced the news on This Morning.
“My son Declan and his wife Jenny, they’re the happy couple. Jenny gave birth to Emilia, who is 7lbs and 6 ounces,” said Eamonn.
“That’s my first grandchild, my mother is a great grandmother.”
Emilia is frequently seen posted on his Instagram.
On April 10, Eamonn posted a photo of Emilia sat on a sofa with a bow in her hair.
The post was captioned: “I know I’m biased… I am her Grand Papa after all. Little Emmy,” showing how proud he is to be a grandfather.
Declan is Eamonn’s eldest of four children and three, including Declan, are from his previous marriage with ex-wife Gabrielle.
