Holly Willoughby has shared a loving tribute to her parents Linda and Brian as they celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary on Saturday.
This Morning presenter Holly, 41, took to her Instagram account to post a picture of the loved up couple sat outside together marking their sapphire anniversary in the garden, with Brian’s arm around Linda.
Alongside the image Holly wrote: “Happy 45th wedding anniversary… when my mum woke this morning she said to me… ‘I know he loves me, because after I watered the garden this morning my feet where (sic) so cold so he took his warm slippers off and gave them to me’….
Within four hours of posting the snap it had received almost 80,000 likes and over 700 comments, including one that read: “Wow 45 years they must have married so young they look amazing.
“I’m 37 years married and I thought that was an achievement. Happy anniversary to your parents & here’s to many more happy years.”
Another said: “Happy Anniversary @hollywilloughby mum and dad. Another year of love has gone by and continues to grow stronger! Enjoy your anniversary weekend!”
A third added: “My husband would do exactly the same and has done many times. Totally agree. Happy anniversary. Xx.”
The photograph was originally shared by Holly’s older sister and author, Kelly, who described their parents as ‘the couple who showed the rest of us how to do it’.
Earlier this week, meanwhile, Mirror Online reported that Holly is planning on renewing her vows with husband Dan Baldwin this summer.
The pair, who have three children together, met in 2004 before tying the knot three years later. This August will mark 15 years of married life together.
An insider told Closer magazine: “Holly and Dan are madly in love and she doesn’t want to wait any longer – insisting they can always do it twice!
“They’re hoping to have a glitzy vow renewal bash over the summer with close friends and family.
“She feels incredibly lucky to have found so much happiness in both her professional and her personal life, and is excited to share that and continue to nourish it with her new vows.”
