Baby joy at the double for BBC Radio 2 DJ Evans and his wife
FOR SOMEONE who is used to early mornings, they could very well prove to be an ideal wake-up call.
Chris Evans, the presenter of the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, announced yesterday that he is expecting twins with his wife Natasha.
The 52-year-old broadcaster, who already has two sons with his wife, 38, broke the news on his breakfast show, when he asked for advice about having twins.
He then said: “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.”
He 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.”
Evans revealed that he had tried to break the news of the impending arrivals to their fiveyear-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”.
He said: “We tried to tell him, he doesn’t quite get it yet. Eli is mum’s best mate. That is going to change, my friend.”
He added: “I’m looking forward to lots of curries and cravings.”
Evans, who came to prominence in television shows in the 1990s including The Big Breakfast, Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush and TFI Friday, has been presenting the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show since 2010, when he took over the programme from Terry Wogan.
