In the black-and-white snapshot, Ruth's dad was very smart in his Army uniform as he doted on his little girl in his arms.

Baby Ruth looked adorable in a white outfit with matching hat as she gazed off into the distance.

The This Morning co-host captioned the sweet picture: "Remembering all servicemen & women, past & present today - especially my Dad Dennis who served for 27yrs in the R.E.M.E. This is him & me in 1960 #rememberancesunday #lestweforget."

The 60-year-old also lost her older sister Julia last year.

She is still very close to her mum, however, who lives within walking distance of Ruth and her husband, Eamonn Holmes.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2010 and are doting parents to their teenage son Jack, share a gorgeous mansion in Surrey.

Ruth and Eamonn also work together, presenting This Morning on Fridays and during school holidays.

However, Ruth celebrated a solo work achievement earlier this week.
