Eamonn Holmes has shared an adorable snap of his first grandchild.

The Belfast man announced on Tuesday on This Morning that he was now the grandfather of a beautiful baby girl named Emelia who weighed 7lbs 6oz.

On Wednesday, Eamonn shared a photo of his son Declan holding the new-born baby and said: “My first born son Declan with his first born and my first grandchild Emelia. Welcome to the world Emelia. Just call me Papa.”

When announcing her birth, the broadcaster along with wife Ruth told viewers that “things had changed” since they appeared on the show yesterday, with Ruth replying, “That you’re a granddad!” while clapping with excitement.

“What are you going to be?” Ruth asked her husband to find out what he wants to be called, adding “Gramps, granddad? Grumps we came up with, didn’t we, but he wasn’t too keen on that one.”

Eamonn said: “It surprises people because they think, ‘He’s too young to be a grandfather’ and already I’ve got people getting in touch with me about glamorous granddad competitions and that kind of thing.

“But my friend Bill, he’s anointed himself ‘Papa’. Papa would be nice.”

Ruth added: “Congratulations Declan and Jenny, we’re very, very excited.”
