It’s going to be twins for us, says Chris Evans
CHRIS EVANS said he was braced for ‘double trouble’ as he revealed his wife is pregnant with twins.
The 52-year-old, who broke the news during a chat with a fertility expert on his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show, said Natasha Shishmanian, 38, had received IVF treatment.
‘Mrs Evans is… she is now, yeah. Twins,’ the DJ announced.
He added: ‘Double trouble. Twin turbo. We’ve known for a while, obviously. She’s definitely the mother. There’s no doubt about that.’
The couple already have boys Noah, nine, and Eli, five, while Evans is dad to Jade, 32, by his ex-fiancée Alison Ward.
The former Top Gear host said the couple’s younger son hasn’t quite grasped the enormity of his mum and dad’s news, explaining: ‘He has got a shock and a half coming, he’s got a double shock coming.’
Evans added: ‘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.’
Looking to the upsides of his wife’s pregnancy, he said: ‘I’m looking forward to lots of curries and cravings.’
He told listeners: ‘When you buy a Mini for the first time you see more Minis on the road.
‘When you begin to be involved in the world of twins you see twins everywhere, they are not as rare as you think.’
The ginger-haired star was previously married to Loose Women panellist Carol McGiffin, 58, and singer and actress Billie Piper, 35.
