What did Eamonn Holmes say on This Morning?

Eamonn made the comment during a segment on coronavirus.

It came after a viewer contacted the show to discuss her fears over not allowing people to hold her newborn baby.

The presenter immediately sympathised with Lily and issued her some advice.

I could be a grandfather today

He said: “You say, how do I say no when people ask? Watch my lips, ‘NO’. Just practice that again and again.

“People are right in understanding boundaries – as I speak, I could be a grandfather today!

“We are waiting on news now.”

Eamonn to become a grandfather

Meanwhile, Eamonn first revealed his son Declan was set to welcome a baby in April.

At the time, he shared: “It’s been a tough year for so many people, there’s not much good news around. I’ve been having a very tough week.

“It hasn’t been a good time. I’ve been in tears. I’ve been in tears again because it involves these two people.”

The host went on: “These people are called Declan and Jenny. Declan is my eldest boy, he’s 32 years of age and that is Jenny, his beloved wife.

“They have just announced that I, and together with Jenny’s mum and dad and Gabrielle, Declan’s mummy, we’re all going to be grandparents!”

Following the announcement, Eamonn later admitted he didn’t think he was ready to become a grandfather.

Eamonn shares three children with his ex-wife Gabrielle Holmes, plus he also has a son with Ruth.
