Chris Evans has announced he’s going to be a father for the fourth and fifth time!
The telly favourite revealed the happy news on his BBC Radio 2 show on Monday morning, telling listeners his wife Natasha Shishmanian is pregnant with twins.
It was Chris’ first day back at work following the Easter holidays.
Chris, 52, broke the news when he asked for advice about having twins, saying: “Mrs Evans is, she is. Double trouble, twin turbo. We have known for a while, obviously. She is definitely the mother, no doubt about that.”
Chris added: “I did a bit of work for TNT once upon a time when I worked in a warehouse and when you work for TNT you see more TNT lorries, when you buy a Mini for the first time you see more Minis on the road, and when you begin to be involved in the world of twins suddenly twins everywhere, they are not as rare as you think.”
The former Top Gear host said he had tried to break the news to their five-year-old son Eli.
He said on the show that the little boy “has got a shock and a half coming, he’s got a double shock coming”.
