Chris Evans returned to work on Friday morning, revealing how the Evans family celebrated after wife Natasha Shishmanian gave birth to twins on Wednesday evening. Speaking on his Radio 2 breakfast show, the dad-of-five said: "We've been up all night! We did go out and celebrate last night and we took the newborns with us – not the unborns – the newborns came out with us because it’s so cool when your new babies are less than a day old. The first 24 hours you can go round and say, 'They're still not a whole day old yet'. So we went out last night and had a house full." He then joked: "I went to sleep on the sofa and woke up on the sofa. I think this is going to be happening a lot more," before adding: "Mum doing very well. Babies [are] splendid, sparkling. We are beyond blessed."

Natasha and Chris announced the new arrivals in a statement read out by radio presenter Sara Cox on Thursday morning, which read: "Ping and Pong arrived safe and well last night. Ping popped her head out at 22.10, Pong popped his head out 12 minutes later at 22 minutes past 10." The pair had given the twins the adorable nicknames before they were born, but they've reportedly now named them Walt and Boo. Talking about the twins' immediate relationship, Chris also revealed on Friday morning's show: "I didn’t really get the twin thing but already it’s showing itself. Already, if one sort of begins crying, you place the other one next to them and they stop crying. Boo's already comforting Walt, and Walt is already comforting Boo."
