BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans and his wife Natasha have welcomed twins. The presenter announced the wonderful news in a statement this morning.
Chris had nicknamed the twins Ping and Pong throughout wife Natasha’s pregnancy. Earlier in the week, he admitted they had ideas about what to call the twins if they were both boys, but was struggling to pick names for twin girls.
Chris won’t have to fret about that because Natasha gave birth to a baby boy and a baby girl last night.
He shared: “Ping and Pong arrived safe and well last night. Ping popped her head at 22.10, Pong popped his head out 12 minutes later.”
Natasha gave birth to their newborns at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey.
“Both healthy, both happy, strong and blessed, as was mum throughout,” the dad gushed.
He praised the medical team who took such great care of both Natasha and the twins: “Infinite thanks to the amazing team at Frimley Park Hospital – amazing people, amazing professionals helping dreams come through. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
The 52-year-old DJ is also a dad to six-year-old Eli, nine-year-old Noah. He also has a 32-year-old Jade with former fiancée Alison Ward.
Huge congratulations to Chris and Natasha. We cannot wait to find out the twins’ real names, but we must admit Ping and Pong have actually grown on us.
