Eamonn Holmes spoke about his 92-year-old mother’s heartbreaking Valentine’s Day message to his late father on social media today. The 61-year-old took to Instagram to recount the story, which he said incorporated “love and loss all in one.”
Alongside a picture of his parents on their wedding day and a more recent photo of his mother Josephine, Eamonn shared the beautiful tribute.
The This Morning star told his 716,000 followers that his mum had re-read the couple’s last Valentine’s Day cards, which were sent three decades ago.
The TV star’s father Leonard died of a heart attack at the side of the road following a camping trip with his wife and Eamonn’s younger brother.
His post began: “My Father passed away 30 years ago. My Mum is 92 and almost entirely housebound.”
“Today it was Snowing heavily and she asked one of my Brothers to visit my Father’s Graveside.
“She then phoned my bro and asked him to place the phone on Daddy’s Grave so that she could tell him how much she still loved him, missed him and that he will always be her Valentine.
“Then she read out the last Valentine cards they sent to each other in 1991….. Love and Loss all in one.”
He signed off with the hashtags: “#Loveis #Valentines #valentinesday.”
Many took to the comments section of his post to share their thoughts.
“Wow. God bless your mum, true love,” Christine McGuinness, the wife of Top Gear presenter Paddy McGuinness, wrote online.
“Oh Eamonn, true love,” another added, sharing the same sentiment.
“Without doubt Rebecca,” Eammon replied.

The post brought a tear to the eye of many of his followers.
“Made me cry…what a beautiful enduring love story beyond the grave,” a third emotion social media user added.
“That’s beautiful yet so sad. I’ve got tears in my eyes reading this, another remarked.
A fifth follower added: “3.46am and I’m lay crying reading this. I can actually feel your Mum’s heartache…
“So sad yet so beautiful at the same time. Love to your wonderful mum.”
Eamonn will spend this Valentine’s Day with his wife of ten years Ruth Langsford.
Yesterday, the 60-year-old revealed that she’d had her first dose of the Covid vaccination.
The mum-of-one said she was “so grateful” to receive the jab in a social media update.
“Another step forward to being able to see my Mum again I hope,” she said, following a difficult year, which has kept loved ones apart.
