Chris Evans expecting twins with wife Natasha

Chris Evans has announced he is expecting twins with wife Natasha.

The TV star broke the news on his BBC Radio 2 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.”

Evan 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”.

He 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.”

He added: “I’m looking forward to lots of curries and cravings.”
