GB News presenter Eamonn Holmes has shared some adorable photographs of him with his baby granddaughter Emilia.

The doting grandfather (62) shared the images on Instagram and Twitter showing Emilia crying but later another photograph of her much calmer, melting hearts by joking she “wasn’t that fond of him” but he has now “won her over”.

On Friday March 11 he shared a snap showing him comforting Emilia as she cried and then on Saturday March 12 uploaded another photograph showing her much calmer as he gazed into his granddaughter’s eyes.

He tweeted: “It took a while .... but I think she loves me now Visiting my Grand Daughter Emilia. Magic moments x Let's face it we all need a bit of Love in today's awful World. I hope you too have Love in your Life #babies.”

Emilia is the daughter of Eamonn’s son Declan and only last year announced he became a grandfather for the first time.

His followers were quick to respond to the cute post, including wife Ruth Langsford who only posted a string of crying emojis.
