Eamonn Holmes has shared the gorgeous first photo of his granddaughter Emelia after becoming a grandfather earlier this week.

The 61 year old has taken to Instagram to share a gorgeous black and white photo of his lookalike son, Declan, cradling the newborn with his 738,000 followers.

This Morning host Eamonn wrote: "My First born Son Declan with his first born and my first Grandchild Emelia. Welcome to The World Emelia. Just call me Papa."

His celebrity friends were quick to send their well wishes to the first time grandad, with Stacey Solomon writing: "Congratulations" alongside love heart-eyed emojis.

This Morning doctor Zoe Williams, who recently welcomed her own first child, wrote: "Ahhhh congratulations Eamonn xxx."

The hit ITV show's resident baker Juliet Sear commented: "Ahhh this is wonderful huge congratulations to you all Eamonn how gorgeous. See you on Friday! Xxx."

The TV presenter announced he had become a grandfather on Tuesday's This Morning as he told viewers: "My son Declan and his wife Jenny, they're the happy couple. Jenny gave birth to Emelia, who is 7lbs and 6 ounces.

"That's my first grandchild, my mother is a great grandmother."

His wife Ruth Langsford then questioned what he would like to be called in his new role as she said: "What are you going to be, gramps, grandad? Grumps we came with up, didn't we? But he didn't seem too keen on that one."

To which he responded: "It surprises me because people come up to me and say, 'He's too young to be a grandfather….'"

Eamonn continued: "I've got people getting in touch with me about glamorous grandad competitions and all kinds of things like that but my friend Bill has anointed himself Papa."

Ruth, also 61, replied: "I like Papa it's got a head of the family feel about it."

Eamonn then joked: "It's like the Pope, there's an infallibility that goes with it, so I'd quite like my grandchildren to call me Papa."

Declan is Eamonn's son with his ex-wife Gabrielle, with whom he shares three children.
