Baby joy at the dou­ble for BBC Ra­dio 2 DJ Evans and his wife

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

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.
