Ruth Langsford: Eamonn 'handsome and charismatic'
Ruth Langsford thinks her husband Eamonn Holmes is "handsome and charismatic" and finds it frustrating when people comment on his weight
Ruth Langsford thinks Eamonn Holmes is "handsome and charismatic".
The 'Loose Women' presenter finds it frustrating when people make unkind remarks about her husband's weight because there are much more "interesting" things about him.
She gushed: "I have a huge amount of respect for Eamonn as a broadcaster. He also makes me die laughing, we have a great humour between us.
"We're very much in love and we have been for years.
"It is irritating when people go on about Eamonn's weight. I think he looks great for his age.
"I find him handsome and very engaging and charismatic. There's a lot more you could say about him rather than focusing on his weight - it's the least interesting thing about him."
Ruth and Eamonn have a 13-year-old son, Jack, together and the presenter feels "very lucky" to have him as she worried she was too late to have children before she got pregnant at 41.
She told Woman magazine: "I didn't realise how lucky I was to conceive naturally in my 40s. It took seven months, which to me felt like forever, but then I spoke to my doctor who told me that's not a long time for a woman of 41.
"I didn't wait that long through choice.
"By the time I met Eamonn, I was concerned that maybe I wouldn't be able to have children so I felt very lucky.
"That's why I didn't push for a second child, because I just thought, 'Be grateful for this wonderful boy, conceived naturally, he's healthy and you're happy.' "
