Who is Jonnie Irwin’s wife Jessica Holmes? Inside presenters family life after tragic diagnosis

A Place In The Sun presenter Jonnie Irwin revealed earlier this month that he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 2020.

He was initially given six months to live, but has outlived doctor’s predictions with the help of medication, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

Jonnie's wife Jessica Holmes, 40, has stood by his side throughout the last two years as he battled his cancer.

She can be seen in some of Jonnie’s Instagram posts, including one which saw them on a recent trip to Paris to celebrate his 49th birthday.

"By my side throughout this is my wife so thought I’d take us to Paris for the weekend," said Jonnie.

Who is Jonnie Irwin's wife Jessica Holmes?

Jessica Holmes is married to TV presenter Jonnie Irwin. The couple married in 2016 which Jonnie described at the time as the "happiest weekend of my life".

Not much else is known about Jessica as she is not a public figure and doesn't have public accounts on social media.

Do the couple have children?

Property expert Jonnie and wife Jessica have three young children: Three year old Rex and twins Rafa and Cormac, two.

Rex was born in December 2018.

On Christmas Day that year, Jonnie posted a picture on Instagram of himself and Jessica with newborn Rex.

"Merry Christmas! Hope you had a great day – we spent all morning unwrapping this fella," he wrote.

"No name yet but at 8.8 pounds he’s already making an impression. Mum and baby doing well. #bruiser"

In June 2020 Jonnie posted a picture of himself and his wife holding their twin sons at the hospital with the caption: “They’ve arrived! After a long day in hospital the boys finally decided to make an appearance.

"They are identical in every way including weighing a good 5 pounds 7 each. No names yet.

"Jess was her usual magnificent self. I’m so proud of her for carrying around what looked like a planet these last few weeks and huge thanks to the amazing staff at The RVI in Newcastle."

He added: "Due to lockdown restrictions I’ve had to leave mum and twins in the hospital and await their return home so giving Rex as much fun & love as possible. We know having 3 boys under 18 months is gonna be hard but it’s better to have a surfeit of good news rather than a deficit. Bring it on!"
