Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford share one child together, although the GB News host has three other children from his previous marriage. The duo are well-known for his or her onscreen partnership on This Morning, but after being replaced by Dermot O Leary and Alison Hammond, the pair have continued to work on their solo projects. Eamonn became a latest host on GB News, while Ruth continues together with her work on the shopping channel QVC, in addition to being an everyday panellist on Loose Women.
In a latest interview, Ruth opened up about affected by “empty nest syndrome” when their son Jack went off to school.
She said while her stepson, Niall Holmes works for them, it felt strange for her when Jack finally left the family home.
Recalling that moment, Ruth explained: “I type of thought, ‘Oh, after all, I’ll miss him, after all, I’m.’
“But I used to be pleased for him to be going to uni and off you send them, don’t you?

“I managed to maintain him alive for 18 years, and also you hope they’ve parted with some wisdom, who knows? And off he goes.”
“I had no idea how awful I’d feel,” Ruth continued within the Be Honest with Jojo and Bruce podcast. “And it was like when he first went to high school, people say, ‘Ohhh once they first go to high school…’ and I used to be like, ‘It isn’t that bad’.
“I used to be quite looking forward to the time, and I remember his first day of faculty when he was staying all day…just coming home and suddenly going ‘Oh, yes’ after which feeling really teary.”
Discussing how she and Eamonn broke down in tears once they dropped Jack off at university for the primary time, the Loose Women host remembered: “Each of us cried after we left him.
The panel were discussing the subject of their partners cheating with a younger person, and whether or not it was the last word betrayal.
Ruth told her co-stars it could be her “worst fear” if Eamonn left her for somebody the identical age.
Explaining her the explanation why, the 62-year-old said: “See I believe, people go, ‘Oh, you’d hate it in case you were dumped for a younger model’.
“I’m going, ‘No, I’d hate it because…’ then I could do the entire cliche thing, ‘Oh, Eamonn is such a cliche, he’s going with a 25-year-old, how sad.’
