Ruth and Eamonn have one child of their own, 18-year-old son Jamie, though Eamonn has three children from a previous marriage.

Speaking about her stepchildren on Loose Women, Ruth said: "I'm very lucky I have a fantastic relationship with my stepchildren. I always think a stepmother has to be very nurturing actually, it's a very difficult balance and a fine tight rope you're walking."
