It’s always nice to receive a loving compliment from a loved one on a down day and the broadcaster revealed Eamonn isn’t short of compliments for his lovely wife.
“I definitely feel sexy at 60, but a big part of that is thanks to my husband,” she told Women & Home.
“He tells me ‘You look fantastic, I think you’re really sexy, I fancy you’ – he boosts my confidence.”
Having just passed the milestone birthday in March, Ruth shared the secrets behind her youthful figure, but accepted that her fitness regime is “a constant battle.”

“I do have a certain degree of confidence myself, but it’s not that high. I still think ‘I’m two sizes bigger than I was in my 40s’, I’ve got my wobbly bits I don’t like.”
But she’s opted for the natural route by saying no to plastic surgery.
“I don’t have botox or fillers so I see pictures of myself and go ‘Is that me? Whose neck is that?'” she joked.
“I aim for 10,000 steps a day, but it’s a constant battle. It’s not about being skinny, it’s about keeping moving.”
“Women were farmed off when they hit 40 – but it’s very different now,” Ruth admitted.
Eamonn weighed in and expressed he has “no doubt” that his wife will breeze through the next decade.
The former Sky News host described Ruth as having “a lovely attitude to life”, and confessed he’s “in awe” of her.
“I just stand back in awe and look at her strength and capabilities,” he gushed, revealing he believed he isn’t “half the person she is”.
“She is my great hero and she has got more into her groove as she has got older.”
