Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have been blissfully married since 2010. The couple, who have a 15-year-old son together, were in a relationship for 12 years prior to saying "I do". When asked what their secret to a happy relationship is, Eamonn said: "Just to keep talking and to keep laughing." Ruth agreed, saying: "We do laugh a lot. People say, 'Oh Eamonn and Ruth always bicker,' and we do, but we also laugh a lot."

Eamonn may take the mickey out of his wife on This Morning, the daytime TV show they both co-present on Fridays, but the Northern Irish star is a softie at heart and regularly praises his wife on social media. "I love my wife," Eamonn said, speaking at the launch of This Morning Live. Over Easter, the TV star shared a picture of Ruth baking in the kitchen. "Even on her odd day off my lovely wife never rests," he wrote. "She's been #baking #Easter things all day. #Love her so much. ❤ #domesticgoddess."

The couple are no strangers to sharing stories of their family life on This Morning. Ruth recently revealed how her husband asked her mum's permission for her hand in marriage, as Ruth's father had dementia. He sadly passed away in 2012. "My father obviously couldn't give him permission so Eamonn asked my mum," Ruth told viewers. "I didn't know this and I thought that was a really lovely thing to do." Her husband remarked: "And you did cry… And you're going to cry again."
