Chuckling back, Eamonn said: “No. That’s a strange question.”

Fans defended Eamonn after the announcement on ITV show This Morning

During his Instagram post, Eamonn was defended by fans after not mentioning Ruth.

Some thought that he should’ve mentioned his wife and was hogging all the attention.

However, one fan said: “Declan has his own mum who’s the actual grandma. Pretty sure Ruth is just happy for Eamonn.”

“It’s his bloody son with another woman. Eamonn is the biological grandad. Ruth doesn’t want to take the light away from Eamonn. Pretty simple.”
