Eamonn, 62, became a first-time grandfather back in July and will no doubt be excited to spend Emelia's first Christmas with her.

Little Emelia will be enjoying her very first Christmas

The TV presenter and his wife Ruth will be spending the holidays apart this year, with Eamonn now back in his native Belfast while Ruth remains in Surrey so she can be with her mum, Joan.

Eamonn explained to Woman & Home magazine: "We have this issue now in that we've got a sea dividing us, we often have a dilemma or whether I go to Belfast or whether Ruth comes with me. But Ruth wants to be with her mum. Her mother is 93 this year. It's easier for us often to be apart."

Ruth added: "Being apart for Christmas has never been a problem. I wouldn't be going to Belfast this year because I need to be with my mum. It's about family for me."

Eamonn is a proud father of four children. He shares Declan, Rebecca and Niall with his first wife, Gabrielle, and in 2002 welcomed son Jack with Ruth.
