Chris Evans has named his newborn twins Walt and Boo.

The 52-year-old broadcaster announced on Thursday (20.09.18) that his wife Natasha Shishmanian had given birth to a boy and girl - who they had nicknamed Ping and Pong prior to their arrival - but it didn't take the couple long to come up with proper monikers for their new babies, according to The Sun newspaper.

Natasha and the twins - who were born at 5lbs 3oz and 5lbs 7oz - were discharged from Fimley Park Hospital in Surrey yesterday afternoon and willingly posed for photographs as a family with their sons Noah, nine, and Eli, six.

Chris announced the arrival of his twins on his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show yesterday morning, saying in a statement: "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 22.22. Both healthy, both happy, strong and blessed, as was mum throughout. Infinite thanks to the amazing team at Frimley Park Hospital - amazing people, amazing professionals helping dreams come through.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you."
