Eamonn Holmes took to Twitter on Wednesday to reveal that he was delighted to be celebrating his eldest son Declan's wedding day – and couldn't wait to get both sides of the family together to celebrate. "It's a special day. My first born son @decholmes 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," he wrote. He and Ruth are thought to have travelled to Ireland for the big day on Monday.

Dec and Jenny have great role models in @EamonnHolmes and @RuthieeL You can't beat an Irish Wedding! #hangovertomorrow."

Eamonn proudly announced that Declan was engaged back in October 2017. He took to Twitter to share a photo of Declan – the oldest of his three children from his first marriage to ex-wife Gabriella – with his brand new fiancée Dr. Jenny Gouk. Alongside the photo, which shows the couple posing together as Jenny shows off her diamond engagement ring, 57-year-old Eamonn wrote: "I am proud to announce the engagement today of Number 1 son @decholmes & his now fiancée Dr @JennyGouk. Much happiness in both our families."
