Ruth went on: "The day before I had just found out I was pregnant with Jack! @eamonnholmes was away with the children so my best friend here @balshaw.sam was the first to know... a very special moment together. We’ve shared a lot of those during our 30 yr friendship... thanks mate [heart emoji]. She’s fairly new to all this so it would be lovely if you give her a follow and say hello #friendship #bff."
