Following their wedding, Declan and Jenny gave an interview to publication Wedding Journal, where they opened up about the special significance of their wedding day date. Declan said: "I think we both compliment each other’s personalities well and I knew fairly early on I wanted to be with Jenny for the rest of my life. The number 8 is our lucky number so we always joked about getting married on 8/8/18, with a year to go I knew I had to get my skates on." Of his wife, he added: "There's honestly nothing you can't like about Jenny; she's kind, beautiful, endearing and so much fun to be around."

On the day of Declan and Jenny's wedding – which took place at Castle Leslie Estate in Ireland – Eamonn posted a heartfelt tweet just before the service. It read: "It's a special day. My first born son @declanholmes gets married today to @JennyGouk. The clans are gathering and I'm delighted to say there's a lot of love and happiness all around us. #IrishWedding."
This year, Eamonn and Ruth Langsford spoke to HELLO! in an exclusive interview, where they spoke about the possibilities of Declan and Jenny having children in the near future. Eamonn revealed: "If it's God's will and there's grandchildren then I would be the most fun granddaddy on the block!" Ruth admitted: "He doesn’t like the thought of being a grandpa because it makes him feel old. But I can guarantee you the minute a baby is put in his arms and is his son's child, he will be mush. I can't wait! I think it will be lovely!"
