Ruth Langsford, 60, tied the knot with husband Eamonn Holmes, 60, in 2010 and are parents to their son Jack, 18. The This Morning presenter has now revealed her birthday plans were somewhat ruined after the nation went into lockdown back in March.
Ruth revealed she had planned to celebrate her big day in Italy and added it would have been the couple’s “first” holiday without their children.
Eamonn was previously married to Gabrielle Holmes and they have three children; Declan, 31, Rebecca, 29, and 27-year-old Niall.
The ITV favourite has now shared her regret on missing out on her birthday celebrations in a new interview but added that it wasn’t the “end of the world”.
It comes as the UK Government enforced a nationwide lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I was supposed to go to Italy in the summer for my 60th,” Ruth explained.
“My birthday was in March, but Eamonn has always said to me that when it’s a big birthday, you should celebrate all year.”
Ruth continued: “We were planning to go to Pompeii for a bit of culture, then to the Riviera, but it’s not the end of the world; we’ll do it another time.”
The Loose Women host admitted to counting her blessings and is grateful that her family are safe and well.
“I’m just thankful that we’re all fine in my family,” she remarked.
“I think we’re all very lucky if we haven’t been touched in a bad way by the virus.”
Ruth concluded: “The holiday would have been our first one without the kids.”
During her chat in the October issue of Prima, the This Morning presenter also addressed her relationship with Eamonn and gave an insight into their marriage.

Ruth detailed the couple’s spats and admitted Eamonn does “annoy” her at times.
Despite this, she explained the couple have a “strong relationship” regardless of their ups and downs.
“Having respect for each other is really important in a relationship,” the Loose Women host stated. “It’s nice to be a couple, but we are individual people.
“Eamonn and I can have big rows and argue, then 10 minutes later we’re laughing about something.”

Ruth continued: “We’ve been together 23 years so it has been a long and happy relationship but we have our moments.
“There are times when he really annoys me and I really annoy him and there are times when I think, ‘Get out of my face.’ Obviously, you’re not always going to get on, but you have to make it work.”
“Underneath it all, we know we have a strong relationship,” the star went on to say.
