During his appearance on the show, Eamonn and Ruth shared the funny story of their son Jack's birth. After recalling their dramatic journey to the hospital, Ruth told the panel and the audience: "At one point I was having a moment in between contractions, and the door opens and [a nurse] says 'Eamonn would you mind coming in and saying hello to Mrs Brown in room three? She's a big fan' and he went! And then the next contraction came and I suddenly went, get him back in here!!"
Eamonn and Ruth, 59, have been together since 1997, and in 2002 welcomed their only child together. In June 2010, the happy couple were married at Elvetham Hall in Hampshire, in a HELLO! magazine exclusive.
